Leasing has officially launched for a new, two-towered development by The Durst Organization in Astoria, Queens. Located at 10 Halletts Point, the 22 and 19-story towers are just the first components of a sprawling, seven-building development that will eventually comprise 2.4 million square feet. It will include more than 2,100 apartments, affordable housing, a public waterfront esplanade, and retail area.
Designed by Dattner Architects, 10 Halletts Point contains 404 rental units, ranging from studio to three-bedroom layouts. Each unit will include floor-to-ceiling windows, high-end appliances, and hardwood flooring. On the low-end, studio units are priced starting at $2150, while the most premium two-bedroom units fetch $4050.
Residential amenities include multiple outdoor areas, a large fitness center and yoga studio, a children’s play room, a library, co-working spaces, and on-site parking. As an added perk, the building will also offer shuttle service to local subway and ferry stations for morning and evening commuters.
Brooklyn Harvest Market, a full-service 25,000-square-foot grocery store, will occupy a portion of the building’s podium.
As a sustainable structure, the development was designed in accordance with LEED-Gold construction standards. Under these strict guidelines, 10 Halletts Point supports energy-saving building mechanicals, on-site water treatment systems, robust recycling programs for residents, and high-efficiency window that reduce temperature loss and heat gain within the structure.
To help meet these standards, The Durst Organization and Dattner Architects worked closely with Vidaris, a global consultancy firm that specializes in façade design, sustainability, and energy efficiency, to source green building materials and interior furnishings.
“The Durst Organization is inaugurating the first step in a long-term vision for the Halletts Point Peninsula. Sustainable and resilient, this vision includes new retail, including a long-awaited supermarket, a public waterfront park, mixed-income housing, and cultural connections, and other community resources,” said Daniel Heuberger, a Principal at Dattner Architects. “Having worked with the Dursts at Halletts Point since the master plan, Dattner Architects is excited to see this first building opening up to new residents.”
