NEW YORK | 43-25 Hunter Street | 155m | 509ft | 50 fl | Com

Queens' Tallest Residential Building to Rise In Court Square




Quote:
The Citigroup tower at One Court Square, is getting a friend. The Commercial Observer reports that Rockrose Development Corp. is currently leveling seven low-rise warehouses to make way for a 50-story, 500-foot-tall apartment tower. The structure will not only be the tallest residential building in Queens, but with 975 units, it will also be the largest. Located at 43-25 Hunter Street, the new tower will rise beside the Citigroup building. Justin Elghanayan, who runs Rockrose with his father, described it as Citigroup's girlfriend.

"I always looked at the Citigroup tower and it looked so lonely. I said, 'Citigroup needs a girlfriend.' So in my mind, this building is its girlfriend. You know when you have a couple and one person kind of softens the other person? I'm hoping that this building will have the same effect architecturally on the Citigroup tower because right now it's so monolithic and lonely on the skyline."

The design team consists of SLCE Architects, SPaN Architecture, and Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects. The 907,000-square-foot building will follow the 80/20 affordable housing split, and it will have 30,000-square-feet of amenities, including multiple roof decks, a full basketball court, a library, and yoga rooms. It will cost about $400 million, and construction should begin late this year. If all goes as planned, the new building will open in 2016.

Revealed: 43-25 Hunter Street



Quote:
A project insider submitted fresh renderings for Rockrose’s development at 43-25 Hunter Street, in Long Island City’s Court Square neighborhood. The architect is SLCE, and permits were partially approved late last week.

The insider also has the latest details regarding scope, and 43-25 Hunter Street will be very substantial, with a gross measurement totaling 970,000 square feet. Ground-floor retail will comprise 19,400 square feet, and the remainder of the project will be divided between 974 apartments, with 20% set aside as affordable; the development will also be split between two components, with a 14-story building rising next to the larger tower.

43-25 Hunter Street will also become one of the tallest buildings in Long Island City, standing 50 stories and 509 feet to its pinnacle.

Lottery for 195 affordable units in The Hayden, from $913/month

6SQFT Blog Article, November 22, 2016

Quote:
Rockrose Development‘s newest Long Island City rental The Hayden commenced its affordable housing lottery earlier this November. As first reported by Court Square Blog, the massive 50-story, 924-unit, amenity-filled complex at 43-25 Hunter Street will deliver 195 below-market units to the western Queens neighborhood when it opens sometime in 2017. The subsidized units are earmarked for households who earn no more than 60 percent of the area median income, and according to the building’s official lottery webpage, range from $913/month studios to $1,183/month two-bedrooms.
