Tishman Speyer’s TS Communities and Arker Companies have partnered to move forward on the development of Edgemere Commons, a 2,050-unit affordable housing project in Far Rockaways, Queens. TS Communities will acquire and develop 10 of the 11 available sites at Edgemere Commons, an affordable housing development in the Far Rockaways. According to industry sources familiar with the deal, the transaction is valued at $90 million.

Led by The Arker Companies, Edgemere Commons was initially approved by the New York City Council in November 2019, but stalled last year. The 2.2 million-square-foot project will feature 38,000 square feet of public space, 77,000 square feet of community-use space, like medical facilities, and 72,000 square feet of retail space. The development will also set 237 of the 2,050 units aside for seniors.
