Halletts Point – Astoria’s Newest Waterfront Development
February 21, 2019
Opening February 20th, 10 Halletts Point is the first building of seven completed in this new 2.4 million-square-foot mixed-use waterfront community planned and designed by Dattner Architects for the Durst Organization. With stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, this new neighborhood is located within minutes of Astoria’s vibrant arts, culture, and culinary scene and offers easy access to the NYC ferry.
The 526,000 square foot 10 Halletts Point features two 22-story towers rising from a large podium topped with a lush outdoor terrace. To support the 404 residential units, the building includes 25,000 square feet of amenity space with fitness center / yoga center, children’s area, and community library space with co-working facilities. Clad in a custom copper and glass skin, which wraps around the towers, responding to the solar orientation and opening up towards the internal raised courtyard. 10 Halletts Point redefines green living with an approach that respects nature and promotes resident wellbeing. The Dattner-designed project is targeting LEED Gold for Building Design and Construction for the building, with emphasis on four core elements: water, energy, air and earth.
Scheduled to open in May, 10 Halletts will also provide the “the first grocery story to open in the area in years”. Once complete, the multi-phase Halletts Point will be a vibrant mixed-use waterfront destination with a new public waterfront esplanade, contemporary living options, and retail space.
