Queens "vill soon be officially taller than Brooklyn. Skyline Tower, a 67-story new development in Long Island City became the tallest building in its borough last week, surpassing the Citigroup Building, which stands at 673 feet.   Marketing and sales for Skyline Tower is being managed by Queens ­based brokerage Modern Spaces. The firm has sold $223 million of inventory since the project's soft launch in May, equally roughly 25% of its 802 condos, after seeing a surge in interest during the Amazon HQ2 debacle for its proximity to the proposed headquarters. Units sold range in price from $640,000 to $2.365 million.   "Skyline Tower has officially become the tallest building in Queens, further putting the borough on the map as a true contender in New York City's competitive real estate market," said Eric Benaim, CEO and founder of Modern Spaces. "We've sold over 215 units since launching sales in May, and we expect the building will continue to draw interest from young professionals and younger families due to its convenient location, Waterfront views and attractive amenity package."
