Halletts Point is a new high-rise, high-density, mixed-use development on the waterfront in Astoria, Queens. Dattner Architects’ master plan calls for eight residential buildings, retail, a public waterfront esplanade, and a site for a potential K-8 school. In addition to the waterfront park, a large supermarket, new retail amenities, and developing plans for supplementary public transportation connections will significantly improve neighborhood infrastructure. The full build-out, phased over several years, will include approximately 2,400 apartments, 20 percent of which will be affordable units.
The first building, 10 Halletts Point, is a 22-story two-tower structure with 405 residential apartments. The project includes a new 25,000 square foot grocery store to serve the community. The towers are oriented to maximize river views, and will offer two large-scale roof top amenity spaces as well as extensive at grade landscaping. The building’s design incorporates sustainable features including a blackwater recycling plant system, high efficiency boilers, and will meet LEED Silver rating criteria. 10 Halletts Point is scheduled to open in 2018.
Scheduled for completion in 2019, Dattner Architects is also designing Halletts Point 7, a 100% affordable residential building and the gateway to the new development.
