One Hunter's Point
New York, New York


One Hunter’s Point is a 12 story, 150,000 SF residential project in the Hunter’s Point District of Long Island City.  The building sits opposite the proposed Olympic Village, and takes advantage of the site’s panoramic views across the East River to Manhattan.  The building’s design is an interpretation of the traditional loft buildings that have been typically built in the area.  This vocabulary allows the use of expansive glass surfaces to allow light and views into the apartments and the use of masonry to convey a sense of permanence to this evolving neighborhood.  The building’s technical challenges include locating the building partially over the Queens Midtown Tunnel and utilizing a steel and plank superstructure.  The units are designed with open kitchens, and dining alcoves to enlarge a typically small unit type.
A landscaped private garden and roof deck are unique amenities to this project.
