A rendering reveals the new Ismael Leyva Architects-designed residential development set to be built at 153-10 88th Avenue in Jamaica, Queens. The nine-story building by Zara Realty will set aside 30 percent of its 223 residences as affordable housing.

Additional components of the 218,000-square-foot structure includes ground-floor community facility space and a valet parking garage for 176 vehicles. Amenities include a fitness center, recreational space, roof terrace, storage units, and more. As YIMBY previously reported, the 95-foot-tall development will yield 150,696 square feet designated for residential space with an average unit scope of 675 square feet, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms.

Renderings depict a pale brick facade with an even grid of large square windows. Setbacks on the upper floors reveal landscaped terraces for both private and communal use. Alternating volumes of brick and floor-to-ceiling glass on the ground floor will likely shroud the community facility space. Solar panels on the roof will produce green energy.

“High-quality affordable housing will be key to the economic revival of our city and of southeastern Queens in particular,” said Amir Sobhraj, co-managing partner for Zara. “This has always been our commitment: To invest in neighborhoods for the future.”

Construction is expected to be completed in 2022.
