Construction has quietly topped out on the 14-story, 89-unit mixed-use affordable housing building under development at 92-61 165th Street, located on the corner of Archer Avenue in downtown Jamaica. A rendering of the project has also been spotted on the construction fence. The latest building permits indicate the structure measures 93,041 square feet and rises 132 feet above street level to its roof.
There will be 7,234 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor, followed by residential units on the floors above. The apartments, all of which will be affordable rentals, should average 964 square feet apiece. They will be rented through the city’s affordable housing lottery. The Arker Companies and Slate Property Group are the developers and Aufgang Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected next year.
