Halletts Point’s first rental tower gets new renderings, launches affordable housing lottery

March 7, 2018

Less than a month after we got a first look at 10 Halletts Point, the first of seven buildings that will open at the Durst Organization’s $1.5 billion Astoria mega-development, the Dattner Architects-designed tower is making headlines on multiple fronts today. Not only did a teaser site go live for the 405-unit rental tower, with even more new renderings, but the affordable housing lottery launched for the project’s 81 below-market-rate apartments. These range from $947/month studios to $1,414/month three-bedrooms, all of which are reserved for households earning 60 percent of the area median income.

As 6sqft previously reported, “the building features two towers rising from the same base, with one reaching 22 floors and the second rising 17. The project also includes a 25,000-square-foot grocery store, Brooklyn Harvest Market, at its base.”

There will be 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, including a fitness center with a yoga studio, resident lounge, party room with catering kitchen, children’s playroom, and an attended parking garage. There will also be two outdoor terraces and a sun lounge, complete with barbecue grills and dining tables.

Residences range from studios to three-bedrooms, in addition to a select number of townhome units. They’ll have floor-to-ceiling windows, energy star appliances, washer/dryers in-unit, and kitchens with quartzite counters, frosted glass backsplashes, and under-cabinet lighting.

In total, the Halletts Point development, Durst’s first venture outside of Manhattan, will have seven buildings spread over 2.4 million square feet and containing 2,400 rental units, about 480 of which will be affordable. More than 100,000 square feet is dedicated to public waterfront space, and there will also be a school. Leasing for 10 Halletts Point is scheduled to commence this summer, and with the recently launched ferry dock in Astoria, it’ll likely be an even hotter ticket.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the new affordable units at 10 Halletts Point until May 7, 2018. Fifty percent of units will be set aside for residents of Queens Community Board 1. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
