NEW YORK | Hallets Point | 340ft | 32 fl | 20 fl+ x 6 | Prep

First proposed in 2009, this mega-development situated on the Astoria Queens waterfront will consist of several towers ranging from 20 to 32 stories. Thus far, only massing models and teaser renders have been made available as the approval process dragged on. Now it has been finally approved.

Return of the Megaproject: Astoria's Hallets Point Unveiled



Quote:
Tuesday, June 16, 2009, by Joey Arak



The cure for what ails the downtrodden Astoria waterfront might just be Hallets Point, a proposed seven-tower development that would bring housing, retail and a pulse in general to the isolated nub of Queens jutting into the East River. The Daily News reports that developer Lincoln Equities Group has begun the land-use review process on its Hallets Point blockbuster—which would replace the Astoria Houses project as the area's dominant feature—and hopes to begin construction in 2010. Architecture firm Studio V is on board, but the Daily News and Lincoln Equities' web profile of the project only offer teasing glimpses of the megaproject. The stats also seem to have been tweaked a bit since Lincoln Equities put its plans online.



After some chatter with local leaders, the developers reduced the height of the tallest towers from 40 to 32 stories. The plan also now calls for 2,000 market-rate units and 500 affordable units in addition to supermarkets, restaurants and retail, and the seven-acre site would also get a renovated public waterfront esplanade with new walkways and other features. According to the developer, there might also be a water taxi stop on the current East River loop. Of course this is all wishful thinking for now, but Hallets Point appears to have some support. City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. told the Daily News,, "It's an area sorely in need of development. It's been in bad shape since before I was born."

$1B Hallets Point project expected to get council OK

Quote:
Lincoln Equities Group’s seven-story, $1 billion mixed-use development on the Astoria waterfront is likely to snag City Council approval Wednesday.

The council’s Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises is still in the process of working out a few remaining kinks, and support from a key lawmaker — Peter Vallone Jr. — is not a sure thing. Still, the Hallets Point project is expected to get the green light, moving its way up to full council approval in the same day.

“I expect that it is going to go through,” Councilman Mark Weprin (D., Queens), who chairs the subcommittee, told Crain’s. “We just have to tie up some loose ends.”

The planned development would consist of ten towers holding 2,200 apartments — 20 percent of which are to be classified as affordable.


City Council Approves 2,500-Unit Megaproject for Hallets Point



Quote:
After more than four years of waiting, developer Lincoln Equities finally got the green light for its $1 billion Hallets Point megaproject (warning: PDF!). What does it all mean? That 2,100 luxury apartments, 500 affordable units, and community necessities like a bank, supermarket, school, and landscaped waterfront promenade (rendered above) are headed for what is at present an isolated, sleepy peninsula that juts out into the East River near Roosevelt and Randalls Islands. To woo local council members, the city agreed to conduct a $500,000 feasibility study to see if ferries between Hallets Point and Manhattan could help increase transportation options to and from the area, which are currently minimal at best. And because another developer is eying a nearby site for a 1,500-unit complex with similar bells and whistles called Astoria Cove, yeah, the population is bound to spike soon. Lincoln Equities plans to break ground in late 2014 or early 2015; meanwhile, Astoria Cove's exact future remains a mystery.

Astoria's First Residential Waterfront Towers, Revealed!

http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/0...s_revealed.php








Quote:
The 1-million-square-foot Astoria Cove development is officially moving through the Uniform Land Use Review Process, and now we finally have the first renderings of the three-tower waterfront project. STUDIO V Architecture shared the visuals with the Architect's Newspaper, describing the three new towers as "an outdoor room" that's defined by greenery and the curved shoreline it sits on. Shorter buildings will be capped with green roofs, and landscape architect Ken Smith filled the property with planted walkways, lots of trees, a rain garden, and flower beds. And, as is now required with waterfront projects, the entire development is set above the projected future floodplain. The towers will hold a total of 1,689 apartments, 259 of which will be affordable, and the street level storefronts will be a mix of retail and restaurants.

Like what you see? You better, because STUDIO V is also designed the nearby Hallets Point, which is 1,000-units larger. That project, rendering as white towers in the image above, includes 2,100 market rate apartments, 500 affordable units, and community necessities like a bank, supermarket, and school. City Council approved the Hallets Point plans last October.

Where is this in relation to the other multi-tower highrise developments on Queens' shore that are currently in the U/C section? Can somebody do a quick screenshot of Google Maps and put arrows in it?

Astoria cove is the development on the northern side and Hunters point south is the one to the south.

Astoria's Hallets Point Project Finally Gets Its Groundbreaking



Quote:
The Astoria waterfront will soon be transformed thank to several megaprojects coming to the neighborhood. One of those, Hallets Point, has been in the planning stages for some time now, but as of today work has officially begun with a groundbreaking (finally) happening at the site.

The groundbreaking was originally planned for last October, but the Durst Organization, which gained a 90 percent stake in the site in 2014, confirmed that the ceremony will happen today at 10am. (h/t DNAInfo) Work is then scheduled to begin on a building located near First Street and 26th Avenue, according to DNAInfo.
