After announcing in April that construction would proceed on the rest of the seven-building Halletts Point mixed-use mega-development in eastern Astoria, the Durst Organization and Lincoln Equities Group have filed applications for two more buildings.
One of the buildings filed last week is a 26-story, 294-unit mixed-use tower at 26-02 First Street, located on the East River. The building would encompass 375,259 square feet and rise 244 feet to its rooftop. It would include 2,443 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by 294 apartments across the ground through 26th floors. The units should average 916 square feet apiece.
The second building is a 31-story, 358-unit mixed-use tower at 26-40 First Street, located just south of 26-02 First Street. It would encompass 491,311 square feet and rise 313 feet to its rooftop. Retail space would measure 6,959 square feet on the ground floor and the residential units above should average 957 square feet apiece.
Davis Brody Bond is the architect of record for the two buildings, The Real Deal reported. Studio V Architecture is Halletts Point’s master planner. Two single-story warehouses must first be demolished to make way for the next two buildings. Permits to do so were filed in February.
