A massive development with over 1,000 units of housing is coming to Long Island City’s Hunter’s Point South neighborhood. Developed by the Gotham Organization and RiseBoro Community Partnership, Gotham Point includes two towers and a total of 1,132 residences, 75 percent of which are affordable. The project is part of a broader plan first announced in 2013 by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg to redevelop nine parcels of land in Hunter’s Point South and bring 5,000 new apartments to the neighborhood. As the first tower nears completion, 6sqft got an exclusive look at Gotham Point, the latest residential project to rise on the Queens waterfront.
