Ambitious residential and commercial project proposed for Astoria waterfront
‘Hallets Point’ would provide 2,300 units of market-rate and affordable housing




BY Clare Trapasso
December 22 2011

Quote:

An isolated swath of Astoria that has largely been ignored by developers and businesses could soon undergo a major facelift under a proposal to erect seven waterfront residential towers and a supermarket.

The Lincoln Equities Group wants to create a project dubbed Hallets Point, with roughly 2,300 units of housing and a waterfront park along the East River near the Astoria Houses.

The public review process is expected to begin next year, city officials said.

“If done properly, it could provide new affordable residences to meet the growing demand of the neighborhood,” said state Sen. Michael Gianaris (D-Astoria). It could also provide “services that that part of the neighborhood desperately needs.”

About 1,900 units would be market rate, city officials said. Another 400 will be reserved for affordable housing.

“We look forward to investing a billion dollars, creating new jobs, affordable housing and even a supermarket and services in a community-approved project,” said Hank Sheinkopf, who represents the project.

The development, which would boast panoramic views of northern Manhattan and Randalls Island, has received strong support from the community, which is desperate for the amenities it could bring to the neighborhood.

Definitely good news. Seven new towers for the Queens waterfront, ranging up to 40 floors.

Sounds like the Long Island City skyline will extend up to the northernmost reaches of Astoria. Queens is really developing very quickly.

And Astoria is, in many ways, already a very desirable neighborhood, with a lot more amenities and character than most nearby neighborhoods. I think these towers will do quite well.

Interesting project. It would be great to see something like this happen, that is if the market and bureaucracy will allow it.

Bureaucracy? Meaning allowing NIMBYists to insinuate themselves the the process? I don't know, as I'm not quite sure if this corner of (unofficial) GreekTown NYC is populated with that sort of human being.
The market, as we all know, is anther matter entirely with a life of its own. Luckily the Big Apple seems to have been spared the brunt of the downturn...Or else, ambitious projects like One57 would've died a *long* time ago.
But that's another debate appropriate for at least twenty dozen other NYC threads on this forum..or so it seems IMO.

The entire neighborhood good be made into something grand if only the public housing were torn down... I think one of the most important things NYC can do going into the future is to tear down all the public housing projects (replacing them with the same amount of units, except in a much denser fashion) and restore the original street grid. There is so much open space left unused... even more public housing (beyond simple replacement units) wouldn't be a problem if the land could be redeveloped at something like 5 times the current density.

I can't help but remember reading somewhere (had to be on this forum) that NYC project housing has been successful, which is why they haven't been torn down . . .

I like the mixed income deal too. I would get two units, one for when I feel like "The Donald" and another for when I feel like an old Astoria neighborhood feel à la "Archie Bunker".

This particular development seems to have local and political support. And it's a step towards the often talked about integration of the city's public housing with other developments. It can be a rare oppurtunity in the city to get something done without the usual fighting that comes with it.

Hallets Point in final stages of design
Thousands of new units would be built


Feb 2, 2012
by Paula Neudorf

Quote:
A billion-dollar housing project near Hallets Cove, north of Socrates Sculpture Park in Astoria, is finalizing its design with the Department of City Planning, according to Andrew Moesel, a spokesman for Lincoln Equities Group, the developers behind the project. The development, called “Hallets Point,” would provide 2,300 units of housing, 400 of them at affordable rates, Moesel said.

Asked whether these affordable units would be for low-, middle- or moderate-income families, Moesel said that had yet to be determined, but did note that the affordable housing would be geared towards senior citizens.

The design is set to include seven residential towers, each between 16 and 30 stories tall, and a waterfront park that would be open to the public. A little over six acres of the site are on the waterfront, with views of Manhattan and Roosevelt Island. Once designs are finalized, public hearings as part of the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure will take place sometime in the fall.

If the public housing remains, I don't know why any middle or upper-income people would want to live there.

There is public housing all over the wealthiest neighborhoods in NYC.

The Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Midtown, Chelsea and East Village all have public housing, for example. It's not unusual at all to have multimillion apartments across from public housing.

Not at all, and all types of housing is needed in the City.

Massive Hallets Point Development Project Gets Boost from State

June 28, 2012
By Ewa Kern-Jedrychowska


Quote:

A New Jersey real estate firm looking to build a $1 billion development in Hallets Point, including a new water taxi stop, and beautify a run-down portion of the increasingly popular Astoria waterfront has received a boost from the state Legislature. Lincoln Equities Group plans to entirely change the appearance of the 7-acre waterfront site, including construction of seven residential buildings with approximately 2,200 units, 20 percent of them set aside as affordable housing, said Andrew Moesel, a spokesman for Lincoln Equities Hallets Point project.

The development has already gained support from the Legislature, which last week passed a bill to make it easier to rezone the area by transferring the ownership of the land from the State Parks Department to the New York City Housing Authority. The City Council still must approve the rezoning of the industrial area before the project, which is a public-private collaboration, can move forward.

The proposed buildings will have different heights ranging from 20 to 40 stories, with many setbacks and view corridors to allow light and air, according to the developer’s website. Lincoln Equities also plans to build a landscaped public waterfront esplanade with pedestrian walkways and bike paths for the entire community. Accommodations will be made for a water taxi stop. The development would be the latest in Western Queens, which has been experiencing marked growth in the last decade. Many of the buildings have been built along the nearby Long Island City waterfront.

Sen. Michael Gianaris, who represents the area, supports the project, saying the growth "helps boost our economy by attracting more jobs as well as residents to fill them." But he is also cautious about the development's potential impact. "While the Hallets Point development can be valuable in this way, we must ensure that any additional growth occurs responsibly so that neighborhood infrastructure is not overburdened and existing residents do not suffer as a result," Gianaris said.

Moesel said the project would benefit the area, including the nearby Astoria Houses, a public housing project, which would get additional open space and recreational areas. One of the goals, Moesel said, is to "add several new amenities, both recreational and commercial to the residents of Astoria Houses."

"That area lacks many services and this project will revitalize that neighborhood and make it a better place to live," he added. The neighborhood would get supermarket, drug store and restaurants, according to the developer.

Proposed residential developments could transform the western Astoria waterfront
Projects would add thousands of housing units and shops to the currently 'underedeveloped' East River district






By Clare Trapasso
August 23, 2012


Quote:
A trio of proposed residential developments could transform the western Astoria waterfront from public housing and gritty warehouses to 30-story towers, shops and manicured parks. Alma Realty is talks with the city to build 1,800 units of housing and a promenade lined with stores and restaurants along the East River, officials told the Daily News Wednesday. The Astoria Cove project, which would include four towers, assorted low-rise buildings and a supermarket, is to be located on an eight-and-a-half acre parcel of land along 26th Ave. “We want the waterfront to be iconic — something that’s really going to draw folks,” said attorney Howard Weiss, who is representing the project. “Almost 40% of the site is going to be [public] open space.” His clients plan to file applications with the city before the end of the year, he said. But plans are still preliminary, he said. “It’s going to be really exciting,” Weiss added.

The owners of a four-acre site next door, occupied by a lumber company and a movie studio, recently announced they are looking for a development partner. Jon Epstein, a partner at Avison Young, the real estate firm handling the property, said a sale isn’t out of the question either. The land is believed to be worth about $80 million, he added. “There are very few opportunities in New York City to get large tracts of land on the water,” Epstein said.

Hallets Point, a proposed 2,200-unit, waterfront development along 1st St., could break ground as soon as late 2013, officials said. The development, which has been in the works for about five years, would include seven residential towers, a waterfront promenade and supermarket, said Andrew Moesel, a spokesman for developer Lincoln Equities Group. “The Hallets Point project will bring many much needed resources to a community that’s been underserved for some time,” he said.

All of the projects require a zoning change which has to go before the City Council, and City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria) said he has reservations. “Development is absolutely necessary for that community,” said Vallone, who lamented the lack of a nearby supermarket or bank. But “it will add thousands of people in area where the infastructure is already strained.” Vallone would like to see new schools built, ferry service instituted and an increase in the number of subway trains to and from the area before he throws his support behind the projects, he said.

Hallets Point Development May Include New School on NYCHA Campus





December 19, 2012
By Jeanmarie Evelly


Quote:
A proposal to build a $1 billion waterfront development in Hallets Point may include a new K-8 school, according to plans presented last week at a public meeting.

The latest plans for the site now include the possibility of a new school, according to an environmental planning consultant working on behalf of the developers. The school might be necessary to accommodate the influx of families expected to move into the area once the development opens, planners said.

"Having done some preliminary analysis of what this project means, in terms of new demands on the various services, we are also studying the potential for a new K-8 public school," said Linh Do, of the consulting firm AKRF. "At this point, we are thinking it will be located on the NYCHA campus."

Do presented the latest version of the plans last Thursday, at a public meeting with the Department of City Planning at the Goodwill headquarters in Astoria. The developers are seeking a number of zoning changes to go forward with the project, and DCP will be accepting public comment on the proposals until Dec. 26.

The plan will have to be approved through the city's formal Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, which Do estimates will start some time after February. If approved, the developers could break ground as early as 2014, with construction happening in phases. The entire project could then be completed by 2022, Do said.

Lincoln Equities is working with NYCHA and the city's School Construction Authority to see if a school would be viable on land that now serves as parking spaces for residents at the Astoria Houses, Do said.

The Halletts Point development in Astoria – overview and photos

QNYC

by Meg Cotner

The Halletts Point development has been back in the news recently. First, what is Halletts Point? It’s a new development planned for the waterfront along the land mass called Hallett’s Point, a peninsula that juts out into the East River (GMAP) just south of Astoria Park. It is home to the Astoria Houses, Build it Green! and a few other businesses (including the mysterious Hellgate Filming Studios), and Whitey Ford Field.

Here are some of the elements in this development:


Lincoln Equities is the developer.
Costs are estimated at $1 billion
The development could create jobs though construction and later, retail.
The mixed-use development is slated to have eight buildings on ten acres.
Three of the buildings would be on existing NYCHA property (Astoria Houses)
Seven of the buildings would be residential, containing 2,200 apartments
20% of the units would be affordable housing, geared toward seniors.
The other 80% of the units would be market rate housing.
Heights of the buildings would range from 20 to 40 stories.
Other elements of the development could include a K-8 public school; retail, including a supermarket, drug store and restaurants; and a landscaped public esplanade along the East River.
An on-street bus layover facility would be built to accommodate increased transit needs.
Some streets would be remapped.
A water taxi dock (maybe an East River Ferry stop?) is also a possibility.
Parking is planned for the development.


Image source: NYC.gov

A document called Halletts Point Rezoning Environmental Impact Statement Draft Scope of Work was released and it is chock full of information about the site and the plans for the development and area. Here is a segment from this (quite long) document that talks about the site in more detail, and gives you an idea of the area as it is now.

The WF [Waterfront] Parcel, Eastern Parcel, and Buildings 6, 7, and 8 on the NYCHA Parcel comprise a total of approximately 420,000 sf (9.65 acres); Buildings 1 through 5 on the WF and Eastern Parcels are approximately 343,000 sf (7.87 acres, including land underwater) and Buildings 6 through 8 on the NYCHA Parcel are approximately 92,659 sf (2.13 acres). The Eastern Parcel is occupied by an electronics and ink toner company, who is expected to vacate. The WF Parcel contains three building structures and three open lots. It is predominantly vacant but portions of this waterfront parcel have been leased to two tenants for construction and telecommunications storage and parking on a short-term or month-to-month lease agreement.

The waterfront along the project site consists of structural bulkheads and soil embankments armored with large stone rip-rap or construction debris. An existing platform and bulkhead extend approximately 175 feet north from the southern tip of the site. The bulkhead and platform are in good overall structural condition. The remainder of the waterfront along the waterfront parcel consists of a soil embankment lined with large stone rip-rap. Buildings 1 through 5 are currently zoned M1-1, permitting light industrial uses subject to performance standards common to all M1 districts.

Buildings 6 through 8 are zoned R6 and contain parking lots, trash compactors, walkways, and a small amount of landscaped area within the Astoria Houses campus. The Astoria Houses contains 22 six- and seven-story residential buildings on an approximately 27-acre campus with a total of 1,103 residential units, as well as surface parking lots, a day care center and senior center, basketball courts and playgrounds, walkways, and other landscaped areas. The campus was completed in 1951. The NYCHA Rezoning Area is also located within the Astoria Houses campus.

Whitey Ford Field is an approximately 3.6-acre park bounded by the East River, 26th Avenue, and 2nd Street, containing a baseball field, bleachers, and open lawn area. It is under the jurisdiction of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), although it is not mapped parkland. Whitey Ford Field is currently zoned R6. The Parks Parcel consists of a portion of the Hallet’s Cove Playground, which contains an asphalt baseball field and basketball courts. The approximately 10-foot wide alienated Parks Parcel that would be incorporated as part of the project includes a number of trees, the park perimeter fence, and a portion of the perimeter sidewalk and baseball field back stop area. The Parks Parcel would be incorporated in the NYCHA Astoria Houses campus as part of the proposed project.

Back in December, there was a public scoping session at the Goodwill Astoria Headquarters (GMAP), which is located in the Astoria Houses. The next step for the development is to go through the city’s formal Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), which Linh Do, of the consulting firm AKRF, believes will happen in February 2013. After that, Community Board 1 will preside over the ULURP. If all goes well, the developers could break ground as early as 2014. The project could be completed by 2022, nine years from now.

Local opinions about the development range from support, neutrality, and caution. Bishop Mitchell Taylor, who is among other things, CEO of the East River Development Alliance (ERDA), a not-for-profit that he founded (2004) “to expand economic opportunity for public housing residents,” supports the development and said, “The project is only going to enhance (public housing’s) footprint.” Community Board 1 has not taken a position on the proposal. Senator Michael Gianaris, (he represents Halletts Point), supports the project, though is concerned that existing services and infrastructure could be stressed. Still, he says the growth “helps boost our economy by attracting more jobs as well as residents to fill them.” Astoria City Councilman Peter Vallone hasn’t taken a side, though (however, his father, Vallone Sr., is a consultant to the developer).

Transit and transportation issues are something to consider - the developers have included parking the plan, and it sounds like additional bus service is planned (one of the buses that travels there now is the Q103, and this development could be enough to extend its schedule). But will that be enough public transportation? This patch of land is located over a mile from the closest N/Q subway stop, so direct subway access is not likely a practical form of transportation for residents here (bus to subway is the current option). Perhaps they will also implement a subway shuttle – Shore Towers (GMAP), the established development just south of Astoria Park, has done such a thing.

On the subject of transportation, there are plans to adjust the streets in this area. Again, from the Halletts Point Rezoning Environmental Impact Statement Draft Scope of Work document. Most notably, Astoria Boulevard would be connected through the Astoria Houses:

A portion of 27th Avenue, located west of 1st Street and currently used as accessory parking for adjacent businesses, would be demapped and transformed into a pedestrian waterfront access corridor. The portion of 26th Avenue west of 1st Street would also be demapped and transformed into a pedestrian waterfront access corridor. In addition, a new connecting street segment between existing mapped portions of Astoria Boulevard is proposed on the NYCHA parcel. Between 1st Street and 8th Street, Astoria Boulevard would be two-directional with one lane in either direction. Parking may be added along some segments of the street, depending on required street widths and the location of existing mature trees.
To the north, 26th Avenue would become one-way eastbound between 1st and 2nd Streets. Between 26th and 27th Avenues, 1st Street would become one way northbound and 2nd Street would become one-way southbound. Third and 4th Streets would remain unchanged in their directionality between 26th and 27th Avenues.
