Sneak Peek at Hunter's Point South under Construction

Posted on 12/6/2014 by Big Apple Writer

With Phase 1 of the Hunter’s Point South Development nearing completion and the end to the application period for the affordable housing lottery approaching, we thought it would be a good time to give you a glimpse of what the newly constructed housing complex would look like.

For starters, the entire structure boasts full-frontal panoramic views of Manhattan and the East River stretched across the floor to ceiling windows. Several angles reveal additional views of downtown Manhattan/Brooklyn and the Queensboro Bridge.

The lower floors are already nearing completion, revealing apartment layouts and bedrooms, while the higher floor rooms are still mostly cement and metal skeleton.  The fifth floor terrace and green space is in progress and includes public walkways and private spaces to be sectioned off for individual units.
Frank Monterisi, senior vice president with developer Related Companies further explained the design of the several outdoor spaces as the architecture of the building mimicking a chair, with one arm as a front terrace and another as a community garden where a residents’ garden club will be open to all. 
Construction for Hunter’s Point South Commons, the first and larger building is slated to be ready for move-ins in Spring 2015.

Last week, Queens Tribune was allowed to enter the hard hat construction site for a preview of the building’s apartments, views and amenities. We are happy to share the pictures below courtesy Jackie Strawbridge/Queens Tribune.

    


 

   

 

In addition, State Senator Michael Gianaris paid a visit to Hunter’s Point South on Nov 18, took a tour of the construction site, and subsequently posted the following pictures of the building.
