jamaica tower


Jamaica, Queens NY
47,000 sf 
14 stories


This feasibility study and vision strategy strikes a balance between optimizing what is allowable as-of-right in the NYC zoning code and what the rental market will support. The result is a 47,000 sf mixed use residential building that meets the needs of  our client, as well as the surrounding community.

The layout of the building provides an efficient residential unit mix and a commercial ground floor. Unit and amenity design explores Live-Work spaces to capitalize on the growing need to Work-from-Home comfortably. The design of the building is budget yet still design conscious, utilizing dark brick and varying textures to ensure it fits in with the neihgborhood’s character while having a distinguished design.
