The Project

Rising at Hunters Point South, a 33-story towers clad in brick and glass expansion in Long Island City MEP. Design by and installed by Cosentini Associates, the 360-foot-tall, about 6,000 square feet building is part of a new complex that stretches about 40,000 square feet of retail and community facility space. A whopping 80% of units (roughly 900) will be permanently affordable apartments, 93 of which are to be earmarked for seniors of varying income levels.

The entire complex will yield 40,000 square feet of newly built space, with the main two towers holding about 1,200 residential rental units from 46 and 56 story towers. The homes will most likely be marketed as rental apartments and include affordable housing accounting for total inventory. In between the two towers is a 612-seat pre k to fifth-grade school to open in 2021.
