Project Description
In the center of Far Rockaway in Queens, an ambitious project is underway to bring 1,700 new affordable housing units to an under-utilized site between the A train terminus and the Long Island Rail Road. With over five phases totaling 1.7 million square feet of development, the design opens up the center of downtown Far Rockaway to the surrounding community. Across the street from the A train, a new public plaza flanked by 100,000 square feet of commercial space will be the gateway to the project, leading to a total of six new residential blocks arranged along a tree-lined shared street. Each building participates in a carefully curated approach to the scale and character of the neighborhood, developed through an interactive process with the client and the Department of City Planning.
