The first building of Durst Organization’s seven-building $1.5 billion development on the Astoria waterfront got new renderings this week, months ahead of its 2018 scheduled opening. As Curbed NY learned, the developer said leasing will launch for the two-tower 10 Halletts Points this summer. As the first building to open on the Halletts Point campus, the tower will feature 405 apartments, of which up to 25 percent will be affordable.
Known as Astoria Cove, this newly constructed 28-unit rental at 26-27 2nd Street is just a block away from the under-construction Halletts Point mega-development. The seven-building project will bring 2,400 housing units to the Astoria neighborhood, as well as a stop for the East River Ferry, a supermarket, school, and waterfront park. Six households earning 60 percent of the median income have a chance to live near all the upcoming action through the city’s affordable housing lottery that’s offering $889/month one-bedrooms and $1,001/month two-bedrooms.
