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.

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.
