Renderings of the winning design by Morphosis

With the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea kicking off in just two days, we can’t help but think what an incredible 17 days it would have been if they were here in New York City (logistical concerns aside). The city came closest in 2004 when it was chosen by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as one of the five finalists to host the 2012 Olympics. London, Paris, Moscow and Madrid were the other four. Splashy renderings planted 27 venues across all five boroughs, New Jersey and Long Island, but the winning, and perhaps most eye-catching, proposal was the Olympic Village in Long Island City’s Hunter’s Point South by Thom Mayne’s Morphosis.

The Queens neighborhood of Long Island City has had an incredible construction boom. Thousands of modern rental units in luxury sky-scraping buildings have nearly taken over the once primarily industrial district. To keep things competitive, developers are building to ever-increasing heights and equipping buildings with amenities worthy of an all-inclusive Caribbean resort.

Check out some of the latest to launch

The American Copper Buildings, famous for their slanted silhouettes and already-iconic skybridge, commenced leasing in early 2017, but they’re now offering one month free on a 13-month lease and one month broker OP, according to the building’s website. Each of the two buildings has more than 300 unique layouts; current availabilities include studios from $2,975/month, one-bedrooms from $5,00/month, and two-bedrooms from $6,530/month.
