The Gotham Organization and RiseBoro Community Partnership have revealed a collection of new renderings for Gotham Point, a dual-tower residential project located within the Hunters Point South mega-development. The property is positioned on Parcel F and Parcel G of Hunter’s Point South, which is among the largest mixed-use residential developments in Long Island City, Queens.
YIMBY went to check out the views from the 44th floor of the 475-foot-tall 52-41 Center Boulevard, the shorter building in ODA Architects‘ two-tower complex in Hunters Point, Queens. Its sibling is the 587-foot-tall 52-03 Center Boulevard to the north. Both edifices rise along the East River waterfront on a parcel bound by Center Boulevard to the west, Borden Avenue to the north, 2nd Street to the east, and 54th Avenue to the south. SLCE Architects served as the architect of record for the 46- and 56-story mixed-use towers that are part of TF Cornerstone‘s Hunters Point South development.
Exterior work is nearing the closing stages on Parcel G, a 34-story residential building in Hunters Point South, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Gotham Organization, the 443-unit tower stands alongside Parcel F, its taller sibling, and is located by the intersection of 2nd Street and 56th Avenue. Parcel F will have a number of units dedicated to affordable housing, as well as a community facility for Flux Factory and kayak rentals on the lower levels of the edifice. Both towers occupy a formally empty plot perched atop a hill overlooking the Hunters Point South Park Extension. This 1.5-acre tidal marsh has winding walkways, green lawns, boardwalks, and lush landscaping, all carefully designed as a buffer against storm surges.
Construction has passed the halfway mark on Parcel F, a 58-story residential tower in Hunters Point South, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Gotham Organization, the structure will yield 689 residential units alongside Parcel G, its 34-story, 443-unit sibling. A grade school will be located in the podium of the complex, between the two ground-up towers. The property sits at the confluence of the East River and Newtown Creek, bound by Center Boulevard to the north, 56th Avenue to the east, and 57th Avenue to the west.
Exterior work is getting close to completion on 52-03 Center Boulevard, a 587-foot-tall skyscraper in Hunters Point, Queens, and its shorter 475-foot-tall sibling at 52-41 Center Boulevard. Designed by ODA Architecture with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, the 46- and 56-story towers are part of TF Cornerstone‘s Hunters Point South development, which is set to yield a grand total of 1,194 residential units. Of these, 719 will be designated for affordable housing. 52-03 and 52-41 Center Boulevard are situated along the waterfront esplanade of the East River and are bound by Center Boulevard to the west, Borden Avenue to the north, 2nd Street to the east, and 54th Avenue to the south.
