Permits have been filed for a 46-story mixed-use high rise along Queens’ East River waterfront, overlooking Manhattan. The structure will rise at 52-41 Center Boulevard, in the Hunters Point neighborhood. The project is part of TF Cornerstone’s Hunters Point South Towers, and will be the shorter of two new skyscrapers.
The 475-foot tall structure will yield 410,240 square feet of space within, with 850 square feet dedicated to commercial-retail use on the ground floor, 7,950 square feet for a daycare facility, and 374,100 square feet for residential use.
394 apartments will be created, averaging 949 square feet apiece, and rentals are very likely. The building will have space to store an admirable total of 197 bicycles. Private terraces will be incorporated into the 6th, 44th, and 45th floors.
Permits for the larger tower were filed in late October 2017. Rising up 56 stories at 52-03 Center Boulevard, it will peak at 587 feet above street level. The building will yield 774,600 square feet of space, creating 800 apartments. A 600-seat elementary school is also expected to come to the site.
The complex will produce a combined 1,197 apartments, with 800 dedicated as affordable for lower-income brackets.
SLCE Architects is listed as the architect of record, and ODA Architecture will be responsible for the design.
The lot is currently undeveloped, and construction is expected to start soon.
