This is exciting. I live on the northern end of Astoria Park. The only downside I can see is that the N and Q trains are already awfully crowded at rush hour.

I typically get on the Manhattan bound train from Astoria around 7AM and it's never bad, but the 8AM train is always a nightmare. The few times I tried switching to the 7 for Manhattan; it was even worse. Not that my hopes are up, but those lines (all lines in the city really) need serious capacity upgrades.

Durst closes on final parcel needed for Hallets Point megaproject



Quote:
Douglas Durst’s Durst Organization nabbed the last parcel to move ahead with its massive Hallets Point development on the Queens waterfront, according to property records filed with the city today. Durst paid real estate investor $15 million for the parcel.

The parcel, located at 1-02 26th Avenue in Astoria between First and Second streets, was originally supposed to close in September. Deutsch’s Astoria Equities 2000 first signed a contract with Lincoln Equities in 2007, as The Real Deal reported. Originally, Lincoln planned to buy the lot for $7.5 million.

Deutsch sued the Durst Organization and Lincoln Equities in October, claiming the developers broke the agreement. “Astoria Equities, which agreed to receive substantially less than fair market value in cash… because it also would be receiving and equity interest… would be forced to ‘cash out,'” the complaint stated.

The Durst Organization took control of the project in October 2014, when it bought three parcels at the site for $130 million from New Jersey-based Lincoln Equities.

The 2.5 million-square-foot Hallets Point project will include 2,400 market-rate and affordable units and is slated to cost about $1.5 billion.

Trio of developers paid $3 million to get projects going

Quote:
Developers behind massive projects in downtown Brooklyn, the Queens waterfront and 1 Vanderbilt, a controversial office tower planned near Grand Central Terminal, collectively poured nearly $3 million into lobbyists in 2014.
Last year, Albee Development, a consortium of developers building part of the City Point complex in downtown Brooklyn, spent $1.2 million on lobbyists, by far the biggest sum out of any single firm in the city, according to an annual report from the City Clerk's Office released March 1. The recipient of most of that cash, Washington Square Partners, is also one of the the three partners on the project and lobbied various city agencies and departments, according to public filings.

"As government has become more complicated to navigate, nonprofits and businesses have turned to lobbyists to provide professional guidance," said Dick Dadey, executive director of good government group Citizens Union. "You wouldn't go into a court of law to defend yourself without the representation of a lawyer."

The second-biggest spender was Halletts A Development Co., a development team led now by the Durst Organization that is building about 2,500 apartments on the Astoria, Queens, waterfront. The firm spent $60,000 for government relation firms, which are typically retained for a monthly fee to meet with city officials and the public to promote their clients' projects. But Halletts, like many real estate companies that have to push projects through the public review process, paid far more, nearly $680,500, to retain Cozen O'Connor, a firm that has a large land-use practice in addition to a government relations arm.

"Under the definition of lobbying, land-use lawyers are required to register and report their compensation," said Cozen O'Connor's Kenneth Fisher, a former City Councilman who has been retained on the government relations side, the land-use side and sometimes both.

Revealed: Building 1 Of The Hallets Point Redevelopment, Astoria


Hallets Point, image by Dattner

NIKOLAI FEDAK
MAY 7, 2015

Quote:
The East River waterfront is booming with new development from Brooklyn up into Queens, and YIMBY now has a closer look at the first building planned to rise at Hallets Point, in Astoria. The Durst Organization and Lincoln Equities are developing the project, which was approved last year, and Dattner is designing.

The larger master-plan approved by the city calls for “eight residential buildings, retail, a public waterfront esplanade and a site for a potential K-8 school,” and the full build-out will total 2,400 units (with 483 designated as “affordable”).



Building 1 is slated for a tentative 2017 opening, and it will include “two 20-story towers oriented to maximize river views, with a large scale roof top amenity space for residents.”

The two towers emerge out of a large podium, and the design will be fairly attractive, with several shades of red paneling interspersed with glass. Most importantly, the project will activate the streetscape below; besides the inclusion of a supermarket, the renderings also show entrances for what appear to be townhomes, which would mesh seamlessly into the new building’s base.



Beyond the tentatively dubbed “Building 1,” plans for Hallets Point also include a cogeneration plant, as well as a waterfront park and “new retail and plans for additional public transportation connections.”



The neighborhood is currently peripheral, and the land will be put to much better use as housing. The fight to build Hallets Point saw several challenges as plans navigated their way through City Planning, but the masterplan was ultimately approved last year, paving the way for redevelopment to finally begin.

Just looked at the renderings. They look awesome and I'm really excited about this project. I hope it will lead to the Astoria Park promenade getting a makeover akin to what Gantry Plaza Park received, which is one of the most beautiful waterfront parks in the city.

Durst files plans for latest tower at massive Hallets Point development
Developer picked up site's last parcel for $15 million earlier this year

June 11, 2015
Claire Moses

Quote:
The latest tower at the Durst Organization’s Hallets Point mega development along the Queens waterfront will be 22 stories tall and include almost 369,000 square feet of residential space, according to a permit application filed with the city’s Department of Buildings Thursday.

The roughly 395,000-square-foot building will be located at 1-02 26th Avenue and include 25,350 square feet for commercial space as well as 224 apartments. A fitness center, a party room, offices and a terrace are among the 223-foot-tall building’s amenities, the permit application shows.

Durst bought the parcel — the last one — in February for $15 million. Dattner Architects is the architect of record, the filing shows.

Durst took control of Hallets Point in October, when the developer bought three parcels for a total of $130 million from New Jersey-based Lincoln Equities. All told, Hallets Point will include roughly 2,400 apartments, both market-rate and affordable, span about 2.5 million square feet and cost about $1.5 billion to complete. Plans call for eight residential buildings, retail space, a public waterfront esplanade and potentially a K-8 school.

A representative for neither Durst nor Dattner was available for comment Thursday.

Halletts Point is a new high-rise, high-density, mixed-use development on the waterfront in Astoria, Queens. The city approved master plan calls for eight residential buildings, retail, a public waterfront esplanade and a site for a potential K-8 school. The first building, now under construction, comprises two 20-story towers oriented to maximize river views, with a large scale roof top amenity space for residents. The LEED rated project includes a cogeneration plant, allowing it to generate its own electricity, heating and cooling, on-site, making the whole development efficient, sustainable and resilient. In addition to the waterfront park, a large supermarket, new retail and plans for additional public transportation connections will significantly improve neighborhood infrastructure. The full build out, which will be phased over a number of years, will include more than 2,000 apartments, 20 percent of which will be affordable units.

I ran by the site two weekends ago and it was buzzing with construction and workers. I really hope the whole plan is built out because it will have a cascading effect on the rest of the area.

Under Construction (1st building of Hallets Point)





Quote:
The first building of the Durst Organization game-changing Hallets Point development is now rising. Hallets Pont Building 1 will be a 405-unit rental complex where 20% of its units will be allocated to low-income households. Now 3-stories above street level, the building will ultimately top off at 22-floors-thus greatly altering the low-rise Astoria skyline. The building is part of the larger Hallets Point master plan that calls for 2,400 units (483 affordable) throughout eight residential buildings, retail space, a public waterfront esplanade and a site for a potential K-8 school in all.

Located at 26-01 First Street, Building 1 supplants a two-story warehouse that faces a waterfront ballpark named Whitey Ford Field. NYC Ferry will soon begin service nearby from a now in-construction ferry launch at the southern side of the Hallets Point peninsula. The new 22-stop ferry system will be able to whisk commuters from Astoria to Roosevelt Island, Long Island City, East 34th Street and Wall Street.

The design is being handled by Dattner Architects and calls for a pair of fraternal towers enveloped by a brick and glass façade. The building will be LEED certified and per the architects, is to include a cogeneration plant that will allow it to generate its own electricity, heating and cooling, on-site. According to the Real Deal, the building will use an alternative air conditioning system, known as a chilled-water system— which pumps cold water through a network of pipes to blow cool air into a room.

The building’s ground-level will hold a supermarket. Communal amenities will be scattered throughout the podium and include several outdoor terraces, a fitness center, a business center, a children’s playroom and a recreational room. The landscape architects, MPFP, designed the exterior terrace spaces on the 4th and 8th floors. Per their page, dining areas and outdoor rooms will dot the 4th floor terrace providing private and hosting spaces for tenants while the 8th floor deck will provide outdoor rooms and seating areas and a specific area for sun bathing.

Building 1 is anticipated to open in 2018. The timetable of Hallet’s Point’s future buildings has yet to determined. Last year it was reported that Durst is shelving much of the master plan upon the expiration of the 421-a property tax abatement program in 2015. Now with a new form of the program revived (now called the Affordable New York Housing Program), construction of the remaining 7 high-rises may now be viable.

Hallets Point gets green light as state investigates Astoria Cove worksite



Quote:
The Durst Organization is moving forward with its Hallets Point mega-project in Astoria now that a replacement for the 421-a tax abatement for developers is in place. The newly branded Affordable New York housing program will provide tax breaks to developers in exchange for desperately needed affordable housing.

When the original program expired in January 2016, one day after Mayor Bill de Blasio helped break-ground for the $1.5 billion complex, Durst scaled back its plans for seven buildings with 2,400 units, 484 of them affordable, to just one building with 163 units. The latter amount was what had been financed before 421-a expired. With a new deal hammered out by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, The Real Estate Board of New York, and the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York that expands the production of affordable housing and provides fair wages for construction workers, Hallets Point has received the green light.

“The passing of ‘Affordable New York’ allows the Hallets Point project to continue,” Durst Organization spokesman Jordan Barowitz said. “We are full steam ahead.”

Durst Organization files plans for 652 units at Hallets Point complex

Quote:
Durst Organization is planning two more mixed-used buildings at its Hallets Point development along the Queens waterfront, according to permits filed with the city Friday.

The building at 26-02 1st Street would span 269,346 square feet and feature 294 units, documents show. The 26-story building will also have 2,443 square feet of commercial space, and 163 enclosed parking spaces, according to filings filed with the Department of Business.

The second building at 26-40 1st Street would hold 358 units, permit filings show. The 349,470-square foot building would also feature 6,959 square feet of commercial space.


In total, Durst is planning 2,400 apartments across seven buildings at the $1.5 billion development, its first major project outside Manhattan. In 2015, the firm filed plans for a 22-story, mixed use building at 26-01 1st Street. That building will have 224 apartments as well as amenities such as a fitness center, a party room and terraces. The developer broke ground on the project in January last year.

The uncertainty of the 421a tax break put the complex’s future in jeopardy, but the developer announced earlier this month that the return of the program would allow them move forward with the remaining six buildings planned for the site.

I live in the area, construction seems to be going well, I would say it's a little over half way through to being topped out. I'll post some pics soon.

Really excited about this development, might even consider living there despite the distance to the subway. I wonder what the pricing policy is going to be. Most people wouldn't want to live next to the projects and so far away from the subway (about 20 minutes away) but a developed waterfront and the amenities could sway some of us in its favor.

Unfortunately, it seems like only the hallets point project is going forward, the astoria cove one has been cancelled after delays due to the local community's pushback - ridiculous. I wonder how many exciting projects have been killed by local community boards...

The area is in a really poor shape, would be great to see it revitalized, especially since this side of Astoria used to be the central/historical part, which has since moved to the other side of the train lines. I'm hoping to see more service oriented businesses pop up, retail, restaurants, etc.

Astoria Cove land is now up for sale again. Hopefully another developer buys it soon and "local community" takes it down a notch.

^no. We must keep it exactly as is. Look at that historic crumbled concrete sidewalk? Do you really want to loose that charm? Think of the children?

Looking at that aerial its funny this project is effectively 2 city blocks from gracie mansion.

And no two ways about it, a good portion of upper astoria near the water is plain ugly. Few trees, overhead power lines, and much of the recent development has been subpar.

To be fair there's been a good amount of mid rise development going on, but nothing on this scale. 21 street has a few 10-15 story tall residentials going up on every block.

But yeah, I can't believe the local community boards are giving developers hard time about developing these dilapidated areas. They should be standing outside with signs "please come here and build something here" instead of trying to slow businesses down.
