The Durst Organization knows a thing or two about locations.
They own and have developed some of the biggest properties in Manhattan and now, they’re testing the waters in the outer boroughs with their first non-Manhattan project. The seven-building Hallets Point development broke ground on the Queens waterfront in January 2016 and when complete, the project will bring 400 apartments, new retail, a new K-8 school, and a new waterfront park. Recently, the area became even more accessible with the launch of the Astoria ferry in August 2017.
One of the buildings, 10 Hallets Point, is gearing up to launch leasing this summer. Construction topped out in September 2017, and new renderings have been revealed (h/t Curbed). The design by Dattner Architects has two towers – one 17-story, one 22-story – rising from a larger base. Communal outdoor space will make the most of the waterfront location and views; additional amenities will include a fitness center and children’s playroom. A 25,000-square-foot Brooklyn Harvest Market in the base of the building, the brand’s first Queens outpost, will be an unofficial amenity for residents and a boon to the whole Hallets Point community. Details on the apartments are not yet available, but approximately 20% of the 405 units will be affordable.
Meanwhile, construction has begun on the next phase, which comprises a set of two mixed-use buildings. 26-02 1st Street will have 26 stories, 294 apartments, 2,443 square feet of retail space, and 163 enclosed parking spaces. 26-40 1st Street will have 31 stories, 358 units, and 6,959 square feet of retail space. Davis Brody Bond is the architect of records, and renderings show two glassy towers rising along the waterfront.
