The two-tower 5Pointz complex is in the final stages of construction at 22-44 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by HTO Architects and developed by G&M Realty, the 1.21-million-square-foot development stands on the site of the former 5Pointz warehouse, which was a mecca for graffiti and street art. Mojo Stumer Associates designed the buildings’ interiors, which will feature artistic homages to the site’s cultural past.
Construction nears completion at 22-44 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, a two-tower residential development on the plot of the famous 5Pointz graffiti warehouse. The 1.21-million-square-foot complex is designed by HTO Architects and developed by G&M Realty. Mojo Stumer Associates is designing the buildings’ interiors, which will feature artistic homages to the site’s past.
A new pair of residential towers at 22-44 Jackson Avenue is rising from the former home of the colorfully eye-catching street art space, 5Pointz warehouse. The buildings are topped out over Long Island City, Queens and are making their mark on the neighborhood’s growing skyline. The elevated 7 train curves around the construction site toward the Court Square station, just across the street from the massive 1,115-unit development. The complex is being designed by HTO Architects while G&M Realty is the developer. Mojo Stumer Associates is in charge of the interior design, which will feature a 5Pointz homage, a graffiti-style logo, and similar artwork around the interiors.
They are the largest addition to the Long Island City residential market, and they’re nearing completion. The two towers located at 22-44 Jackson Avenue have long since topped out, and are now barreling toward opening day when they can finally add 1,115 residencies to the neighborhood. The project is housed on the former site of 5Pointz, a cultural significant structure that exhibited some incredible street art. G&M Realty is responsible for the development.
Construction is now two stories above street level—a two-story increase since the end of May—on the two-towered, 48- and 41-story, 1,115-unit mixed-use development replacing 5Pointz at 22-44 Jackson Avenue, in the Court Square section of Long Island City. The latest photos of the site can be seen at The Court Square Blog. The entire complex will encompass 1,209,884 square feet, including 39,765 square feet of commercial space on the ground and cellar levels. Some of that space will be for 20 artists’ studios. The residential units will be rentals averaging 876 square feet apiece. Twenty percent of them, or 223 units, will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. G&M Realty is the developer and HTO Architect is behind the architecture. Completion is expected towards the end of 2017.
