Development continues...

Phase 2 of Hunters Point South Megaproject Is Now Underway



Quote:
Construction work is officially underway on the second phase of Hunters Point South, the Long Island City megaproject that will eventually bring 5,000 apartments to the neighborhood, with over half of them set aside as affordable housing.

Mayor Bill de Blasio broke ground on a series of infrastructural projects set to take place at the site, including work on the second part of an 11-acre park, new streets with sewers, water mains, and utility work. This phase of construction will also see the addition of 3,000 new units of housing, 60 percent of which will be for low- and middle-income families. Construction on this phase of housing will commence right after the infrastructural work is complete sometime in 2018.



The city has committed close to $100 million for the second phase of this project as part of the Housing New York plan. The city is working with several architects and developers on the different phases of the project. The landscape of the park is being developed by Weiss/Manfredi and Thomas Balsley Associates, while the residential buildings are being developed by Related, Monadnock, and Phipps Houses.

Phase two will be much more impressive than phase 1. A reminder taken from #36 and #38 way back in this thread:
