NEW YORK | Hunters Point South | 122m x 3 | 400ft x 3 | 41 fl | 119m x 3 | 390ft x 3 | 36 fl | 35 fl | U/C

Hunters Point South is a 13 tower megadevelopment on the East River waterfront in Queens. Phase I is already underway while phase II is out for bid.


http://www.nyc.gov/html/hpd/html/dev...nt-south.shtml

Quote:
Hunter's Point South (formerly "Queens West South") is a proposed mixed-use, middle-income housing development situated on approximately 30 acres of prime waterfront property in Long Island City, Queens. Up to 5,000 housing units, the majority of which will be affordable to moderate and middle income families, are expected to be developed on the site, ensuring that such families can work and live in the city. The affordable units will be targeted to families earning 80% - 165% of the HUD Income Limit, which currently ranges from $55,000 and $158,000 for a family of four. The new units are a part of Mayor Bloomberg's $7.5 billion New Housing Marketplace Plan to build and preserve 165,000 units of affordable housing over ten years - the largest municipal affordable plan in the nation's history.

The project will be a vibrant, sustainable and well designed urban community. In addition to housing, Hunter's Point South will include retail space, community/cultural facilities, a new school, parking and a new continuous waterfront park. An inter-agency team led by the NYCEDC has been working with community representatives to develop the Plan for the site.

Related to build Hunters Point South

Quote:
Sunday, February 13, 2011

The Bloomberg administration announced Wednesday morning that it had selected a development team led by Related Companies to build the first phase of a development on the Queens waterfront, which, when completed, will be the largest middle-income complex built since the 1970s.

Related, and its partners — Phipps Houses, the largest nonprofit moderately priced housing operator in the city, and Monadnock Construction, one of the largest builders of such housing — will erect two buildings at what is called Hunters Point South with 908 rental apartments, at least 685 of which will be set aside for working- and middle-class families earning $32,000 to $130,000 a year.

The entire project, which was first announced by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg more than four years ago, will offer subsidized housing for an unusually broad swath of working- and middle-class families. The city has invested heavily in the site, by buying this once industrial stretch of waterfront where Newtown Creek enters the East River for $100 million.

The city will also build a 10-acre park and install the necessary water and sewer lines for the entire site.
Phase I

Work Starts at Hunter's Point Affordable Housing Complex



Quote:
Monday, March 4, 2013

The last time we checked in on the new affordable housing complex (with 925 apartments, the biggest to be built since the 1970s) + 1,100-seat school + waterfront park + retail space planned for Hunter's Point South in Long Island City, the zoning plan had just been approved. And today, presided over by Mayor Mike... ta-da, ground was broken. Intricate details of the two sites (one at 1-50 50th Avenue, the other at 1-55 Borden Avenue) in the complex have also been released. Expect amenities like public terraces, a fitness center, children's playroom, tech center, bike storage and party rooms in each building. The 50th Avenue site will also have a community garden. The five-acre waterfront park includes a playground, basketball court, dog run, train track "rail garden," and a dedicated space for recreation.

Aaaaand it's all designed by SHoP Architects, who are just all over the place these days (see their Domino plan, released last night). An improvement from the artistic teaser trailer released months, ago, now we have a bit more insight into what Hunter's Point South will actually look like.

Hunters Point South: City Seeks Developer For 1,000 Affordable Apts.



Quote:
Request for proposals for Phase 2 of the vast Hunter's Point South middle-class housing project on the Long Island City, Queens, waterfront comes as work for initial phase is just beginning.

May 1, 2013 1:27 p.m.

The Bloomberg administration is seeking a developer for the second phase of the vast Hunter's Point South middle-class housing project on the Queens waterfront. Given the location, the city is insisting all interested parties take the altered expectations of a post-Sandy world into consideration.

The call for developers on Tuesday from the city Department of Housing Preservation and Development comes just as work for the initial phase of the project is getting underway. The second phase will be built along the East River between Borden and 54th avenues at the southern tip of Long Island City. The request for proposals calls for 1,000 new apartments, at least half of which must be set aside for middle- and moderate-income families.

City housing commissioner Mathew Wambua noted that people had doubted the city could create a middle-class neighborhood of 5,000 apartments, especially in the middle of a recession.

"The RFP for Phase 2 is proof positive that we have been able to continue to build on our commitment to create a haven of affordability in the Hunter's Point neighborhood for New York's hard working families," Mr. Wambua said in a release.

The first phase attracted a number of the city's top developers, including Douglaston Development, the Durst Organization, Jonathan Rose Cos. and AvalonBay. Ultimately, the Related Cos., in partnership with Monadnock Development and Phipps Houses, won the right to build 925 units and a new school and retail spaces.

The second phase is located on an 110,000-square-foot site in the middle of the public land, immediately south of Related's plots. In addition to the apartments, it calls for 28,000 square feet of new retail and encourages, though does not require, the inclusion of a ferry dock in the plans.

Hunters Point South Waterfront Park Will Open This July



Quote:
With work just beginning on the new affordable housing complex at Hunters Point South and the city just seeking developers for the project's second phase, it seems like any tangible development in the area must be years off—but that's not so. The project promised to include 11 acres of waterfront open space, and that park is expected to open this July, according to the architects at Weiss/Manfredi, who worked on the park with landscape architect Thomas Balsley and consultant/infrastructure designer ARUP. Check out the architects' renderings, including an awesome aerial view, in the gallery above.

Here's how Weiss/Manfredi describes the project:

"The site is waterfront and city, gateway and sanctuary, blank slate and pentimento. These readings suggest an approach to the landscape that enhances what is unique about the site, while framing a new multi-layered identity as a recreational and cultural destination. New open spaces with connections to the surrounding communities provide access to the water's edge and spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline."

This is the same site that, had NYC won the 2012 Olympics bid, would have hosted the wacky Morphosis Olympic village. This is a pretty decent consolation prize.

Massive “urban beach” to transform Queens waterfront


Archpaper

Quote:
August 27, 2013

The city will open a new public park in Long Island City’s Hunter’s Point South section Wednesday — the centerpiece of what is perhaps the city’s largest redevelopment undertaking since the 1970s. The five-acre beachfront park extends a corridor of recreational space on Queens’ western shore that runs south from Gantry Plaza State Park and should reach troubled Newtown Creek. The park is part of a larger project to build 5,000 new residential units – the majority of them affordable – alongside retail businesses and a school.

“It’s about building a mixed-use neighborhood with affordable housing at the core,” said Michael Rem, an executive vice president at the city’s Economic Development Corp., which spearheaded the project, according to the Wall Street Journal. “We hope a policeman or nurse could get a two-bedroom apartment here and raise a family.”

Developers have begun work on two 900-unit housing blocks—one 37 floors and the other 32 floors—expected to cost roughly $332 million and set for completion in 2014.

The bulk of the funding for the residential complex came in the form of $236 million in City Housing Development Corp. tax-exempt bonds, according to the newspaper.

The close-up details look good in the renders, but it looks a bit messy from afar.

This one should be moved to the construction thread since they are building this from some months now, the buildings are already a few floors above ground. The park was opened last week.

Here you can see the completed school, and next to it the residential building in site A which is already 4 stories high.

Fantastic project

Combined with the Roosevelt island developments it will transform the area and in a way bring the Manhattan look across the East river

The park is fab and an amazing addition to the numerous new NYC waterfront parks, but the building renders are so-so and it remains to be seen what kind of quality they are. They do look more interesting than the previous LIC towers though so I guess we can't complain too much.

Wait, both towers are u/c? Long Island's waterfront is arguably the best in the East River right now. The ferry station is nice as well. The new towers hopefully can break the monotony of the blue glass clad buildings.
