NEW YORK CITY-TF Cornerstone and Selfhelp have been tapped to build the second phase of the city’s massive Hunter’s Point South development. Located in Long Island City, Queens, the site—referred to as parcel C—will be developed into two high-rise buildings with a total of 1,193 new apartments. Of the total, 796 apartments will be affordable, with 100 of those units reserved for low-income senior citizens. The remainder of the apartments will be market-rate. Phase two also will feature a fitness facility, rooftop gardens and decks, children’s playroom, an on-site senior recreational center and other amenities.

“We are excited to be working with TF Cornerstone and Selfhelp to build this next phase of the largest affordable housing development undertaken since the 1970s,” says NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development commissioner RuthAnne Visnauskas. “From our most vulnerable populations to those in our middle-class, the challenges of finding an affordable home and the cost of living with rent burden are experiences that many New Yorkers share. This second phase of Hunter’s Point South will create nearly 800 affordable apartments, in a mixed-income community, new space for local arts and community groups, and new opportunity for economic growth. But most important, it will be a place where our senior citizens will have rents they can afford and supportive services, and where hardworking moderate- and middle-income New York families can put down roots and grow with this vibrant and flourishing neighborhood.”
