Progress at 43-12 Hunter Street, now referred to as Triangle, has been moving along since the residential building recently topped out over Long Island City. The exterior curtain wall panels are about to reach the main setback near the halfway point of the 18-story reinforced concrete tower. The project is being designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Rockrose Development, which purchased the site for $1 million all the way back in 2006. Slade Architecture is in charge of the interior design.
The site is located in the booming downtown Queens neighborhood, bound by 44th Road and 43rd Avenue. A number of subways are easily accessible and within walking distance. These include the E and M at Court Square-23rd Street; the 7 and G at Court Square; the 7, N, and W at Queensboro Plaza; and the E, M, and R at Queens Plaza.
The tower will house 123 rentals along with nearly 4,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor and cellar. Amenities will include a residential lounge, a fitness center, and an outdoor rooftop terrace.
43-12 Hunter Street is expected to be finished by the end of this year.
