Construction is now underway on a sprawling mixed-use development in Jamaica, Queens, designed by architects Edelman Sultan Knox Wood for a multi-agency development team, and Omni New York. Located between Jamaica and Archer Avenues at 92-23 168th Street, the project will debut as “Archer Green” and incorporate residential, retail, commercial, and parking areas.
Construction has wrapped on an affordable housing project at 1561 Walton Avenue, in The Bronx’s Concourse neighborhood. The 11-story building was a joint development by the Briarwood Organization and the Settlement Housing Fund (SHF), to create 59 affordable apartments for people with an income of 40% to 90% relative to the Area Median Income. The building was designed with the goal of fostering community within open spaces. Briarwood is also responsible for general contracting, while SHF is responsible for development.
Ground was broken at 2865 Creston Avenue yesterday to mark the beginning of construction on Bedford Green House, a 13-story supportive and affordable housing project in The Bronx’s Bedford Park neighborhood. The development is expected to cost $58.8 million, with almost half financed by the New York City Housing Development Corporation, HDC, under their Extremely Low- and Low-Income Affordability (ELLA) program.
New York’s accessory skylines outside of Midtown and Downtown have been booming with new development in recent years, with Jersey City, Downtown Brooklyn, and Long Island City taking the respective crowns for their respective counties. But beyond those nodes, high-rises have also begun to multiply beyond the proximate periphery. Jamaica, in Queens, has seen a sprinkling of 20 to 30 story buildings enter the pipeline in the past few years, and now another major project is set to rise in the burgeoning neighborhood, at 92-23 168th Street.
