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 is LEED Gold certified.
Dattner Architects is also designing Halletts Point 7, a 100% affordable residential building and the gateway to the new development.
