A new rental with nearly 400 affordable apartments and a low-cost grocery store officially opened in Jamaica, Queens this week. Located at 92-23 168th Street, Archer Green was developed by Omni New York and designed by ESKW/Architects. The development has 389 total apartments across two towers, one at 23 stories and the other at 20 stories, and will be home to an ALDI grocery store and 15,000 square feet of community space.

Early this year, an affordable housing lottery launched for 351 mixed-income units at the building, with apartments ranging from apartments, ranging from $524/month studios to $2,638/month three-bedrooms. Units have dishwashers and air conditioning.

Additional amenities include an on-site laundry room, fitness center, a children’s playroom, a landscaped outdoor deck, a community lounge, co-working space, and 100 parking spaces.

The project also features a state-of-the-art sustainable power system, with an on-site power hub that stores power for emergencies.

Archer Green, which broke ground in 2018, is part of the city’s Jamaica NOW Action Plan, a revitalization effort introduced by Mayor Bill de Blasio in February 2015 to promote economic and commercial growth and create more housing in the neighborhood.

The city’s Economic Development Corporation, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, the Housing Development Corporation, and Omni New York joined local elected officials in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Archer Green on Wednesday.

“The opening of Archer Green is nothing short of a tremendous victory for the families of Jamaica as we welcome nearly 400 units of 100 percent affordable housing, as well as a much-needed grocery store and significant community space, to one of Queens’ most historic and fastest-growing communities,” Queens Borough President Donovan Richards said. “Archer Green will make a massive difference in the lives of hundreds of Queens families.”
