The project team behind Flushing Point Plaza, a rising three-tower complex, has revealed the preliminary renderings of two forthcoming residential towers. The development is located at 131-02 40th Road in Flushing, Queens, and will eventually comprise more than 243,000 square feet of residential area.

From developer Flushing Point Holding LLC, the three interconnected towers will comprise an aggregate 706,600 square feet. Total buildable square feet will max out at approximately 550,600 square feet.

Designed by Lu Ning Architecture, the residential buildings are referred to as North Tower and South Tower. Together, they are expected to yield about 386 condominiums, over 1,000 square feet of community facilities, and a 97,000-square-foot parking garage. The garage is designed to accommodate 483 vehicles and 192 bicycles.

Additional amenities will include a fitness center, a flexible recreation room for residents, an expansive third-floor terrace, and a rooftop terrace atop each of the residential towers. While previous iterations of design included mention of a hotel, no guestrooms are mentioned in the latest scoping documents from the project team.

As depicted in the renderings, both buildings feature a conventional massing with floor-to-ceiling glass and white accenting. On at least one of the structures, the balconies are stacked in a distinctive alternating pattern.

At this time, foundations for the residential towers have been completed and construction of the superstructure in imminent. The construction of the commercial building is now two floors above grade.

  1. Ugh. This had to be interlocked by a train track AND the freeway?!?!
    This doesn’t seem desirable at all.

  2. the site is the site….why is front entry so under-embellished – flat – with a giant warehouse sized service door right next to it. The sensitivity of any elegance of design is missing from this building.

  3. Plenty of people dwell between a freeway and some train tracks.

  4. Unpopular opinion:

    They should get rid of the Van Wyck between the interchange and the Whitestone expressway. Would free up lots of land for the park or even an extension of the old Worlds Fair Line and make it much more appealing to park goers. There is nothing the Van Wyck does that the GCP doesn’t in that stretch.

  5. 1,000 feet of community space? Well sign me up!
