The Gotham Organization and RiseBoro Community Partnership have revealed a collection of new renderings for Gotham Point, a dual-tower residential project located within the Hunters Point South mega-development. The property is positioned on Parcel F and Parcel G of Hunter’s Point South, which is among the largest mixed-use residential developments in Long Island City, Queens.
Exterior work is nearing the closing stages on Parcel G, a 34-story residential building in Hunters Point South, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Gotham Organization, the 443-unit tower stands alongside Parcel F, its taller sibling, and is located by the intersection of 2nd Street and 56th Avenue. Parcel F will have a number of units dedicated to affordable housing, as well as a community facility for Flux Factory and kayak rentals on the lower levels of the edifice. Both towers occupy a formally empty plot perched atop a hill overlooking the Hunters Point South Park Extension. This 1.5-acre tidal marsh has winding walkways, green lawns, boardwalks, and lush landscaping, all carefully designed as a buffer against storm surges.
Construction has passed the halfway mark on Parcel F, a 58-story residential tower in Hunters Point South, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Gotham Organization, the structure will yield 689 residential units alongside Parcel G, its 34-story, 443-unit sibling. A grade school will be located in the podium of the complex, between the two ground-up towers. The property sits at the confluence of the East River and Newtown Creek, bound by Center Boulevard to the north, 56th Avenue to the east, and 57th Avenue to the west.
Gotham Organization’s contentious new development at 130 St. Felix Street in Downtown Brooklyn is now under review by the Department of City Planning as part of the New York’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure. Known simply as ULURP, the procedure is required for projects that require special review or modifications to existing zoning regulations.
Façade work is progressing on the topped-out superstructure of “Parcel G,” a 34-story tower in Hunters Point South, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Gotham Organization, the building will yield 443 residential units, of which a portion will be dedicated to affordable housing, as well as a lower-level community facility for Flux Factory and for kayak rentals. The site is located by the intersection of 2nd Street and 56th Avenue.
