Developers, elected officials, and local community leaders recently gathered to celebrate the completion of Archer Green, a new 100-percent affordable housing complex in Jamaica, Queens. The property is located at 92-23 168th Street and introduces 387 affordable housing units, a parking garage designed to accommodate 130 vehicles, a low-cost Aldi supermarket, and a 15,000-square-foot community center.

Omni New York is the developer responsible for the property, which broke ground in October 2018. The project team also includes architects Edelman Sultan Knox Wood and New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development, the Economic Development Corporation, and the Housing Development Corporation.

“The opening of Archer Green is nothing short of a tremendous victory for the families of Jamaica as we welcome nearly 400 units of 100-percent affordable housing, as well as a much-needed grocery store and significant community space, to one of Queens’ most historic and fastest-growing communities,” said Queens borough president Donovan Richards, Jr. “Archer Green will make a massive difference in the lives of hundreds of Queens families.”

Developers, elected officials, and local community leaders joined on December 1st for a ribbon cutting ceremony at Archer Green.

Located on what was once an underutilized parking garage managed by the New York Police Department, Archer Green is the first major project completed under the Jamaica NOW Action Plan. Announced in 2015, the $153 million initiative aims to economically revitalize Jamaica through strategic neighborhood investments, the creation of quality affordable housing, safety improvements, and the expansion of publicly accessible outdoor space.

Apartments at Archer Green range from studios up to three-bedroom homes and are limited to households between 40 percent and 130 percent of the area median income (AMI). This would equate households with $20,160 to $183,300 annual income.

Amenity spaces include bike storage, electric vehicle charging stations, a resident lounge, a fitness center, a business center and coworking suite, a children’s playroom, package lockers, and an outdoor terrace with barbecue grills and seating.

“What was once an NYPD garage is now nearly 400 affordable homes, plus a new grocery store and additional retail–yet another example of how the city has been pushing to use public sites to develop affordable housing,” said HPD commissioner Louise Carroll. “I want to congratulate Omni New York LLC, NYCEDC, and all of our partners for completing Archer Green and delivering on a key commitment of the Jamaica NOW Action plan.”
