49-Story Mixed-Use Tower with 100% Affordable Housing Moves into Environmental Review Process


According to recently-published Draft Scope of Work for a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS), the chosen developers intend to build a 700,000-square-foot-tower with 234 affordable apartments, 88,000 square feet of dorm rooms, 200,000 square feet of office space and a 12,000-square-foot supermarket. Additionally, planned is 28,000 square feet of amenities that will include a health club, food court, and laundry facility. The NYPD is to reintroduce a parking facility to the building's cellar level and part of the ground floor. On the upper reaches of the tower, an urban garden, a cooling tower, and an alternative energy plant is envisioned. According to the DEIS, the completion is projected for 2023.

I'm unsure if the rendering reflects the final product, but if its close then I expect this tower will be passive in design. That, in combination with the alternative energy farm envisioned atop the roof, might allow this building to exist off-grid.
