New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (NYCHPD) is undertaking the construction of Hunters Point South project in New York, the US.

The project includes seven land parcels.

The project involves the construction of the mixed-use facility on 12ha of land with approximately 5,000 new units of housing, with a minimum of 60% or 3,000 units having been reserved as permanently affordable. The entire project includes more than 4.45ha of landscaped waterfront parkland, new retail shops, community facility space, and the new school. The project is implemented in two phases.

The first phase of the project includes the construction of 2,000 new units of housing, two mixed-use buildings comprising 925 permanently affordable apartments and roughly 1,579.35m2 of new retail space, key infrastructure installations, a new 2.02ha, waterfront park and a new 1,100-seat intermediate and high school, 404-Q.

The second phase of the project includes the construction of 3,000 units of housing, two high-rise towers of 41 and 36-story containing 1,193 new residential units, 400 units will be market-rate, nearly 800 will be affordable apartments with 100 of the units reserved for low-income senior citizens. The development includes retail space on the second street and Borden Avenue and may also provide community facility space and residential parking on the site and a public park.

The Hunter’s Point South plan completed the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure in November 2008.

In 2009, the City acquired the entire 12ha, Hunter’s Point South site from the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (Port Authority) for US$100 million dollars.

NYCHPD invited bids for developing the first phase of the project in June 2010.

SHoP Architects and Ismael Leyva Architects are behind the design of the buildings. The development team of Phipps Houses Group, Related Companies and Monadnock Construction Inc, was chosen to develop the initial phase of the project in February 2011.

Parcel F 3019m2 area between 56th and 57th Avenues, and Parcel G 2666m2 area above Newtown Creek. It involves 600-seat school, 750 mixed-income apartments.

Thomas Balsley Associates, Weiss/Manfredi and ARUP were appointed as the architects for the public park.

On March 4, 2013, the officials broke ground on the first phase (Parcels A & B) of Hunter’s Point South development.

On April 30, 2013, the NYCHPD Commissioner Mathew M. Wambua announced the release of a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the second phase of the Parcel C, of Hunter’s Point South development area on the Queens waterfront.

The second phase of the Hunter’s Point South development will be developed under Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s New Housing Marketplace Plan (NHMP). The NHMP is a multi-billion dollar initiative to finance 165,000 units of affordable housing for half a million New Yorkers by the close of Fiscal Year 2014.

The Hunter’s Point South second phase RFP calls for the development of Parcel C (Block 6/Lot 60) bordered by Center Boulevard, Borden Avenue, 2nd Street and 54th Avenue. Consisting of roughly 10,219.3m2 development of Parcel C is projected to create roughly 1,000 units of housing, of which approximately 50% - 60% of the units will be permanently affordable to families earning between 80% Area Median Income (AMI) and 165% AMI, or a combined household income of between US$68,700 and up to US$141,735 for a family of four.

In addition to the primary residential component, plans for the site call for approximately 2601.29m2 of new retail space on the ground floor along with 2nd Street and Borden Avenue, and residential parking.

The RFP submission period runs from April 30, 2013, through July 26, 2013. Applicants are asked to suggest storm resiliency measures that would be appropriate for the site, and proposals must comply with flood regulations and consider the Advisory Base Flood Elevations recently released by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

In December 2013, TF Cornerstone appointed as the developer for the second phase of the project.

In 2015, construction works on the first phase were completed.

In November 2015, the groundbreaking ceremony was held for the second phase of the project.

In June 2016, NYCHPD issued a request for proposal (RFP) for developers to build around 750 apartments and a 600-seat school on Parcel F and G.

In August 2017, TF Cornerstone submitted revised design plans for the 1,197-unit building to include a 600-seat elementary school in the second phase of the project.
