A large developer was looking for ideas as to how he might build out this large strip of waterfront property in this large strip of waterfront property in Queens. To that end, we designed for him both, big box and small shop retail spaces on the first two levels of this project.
On the upper floors, we designed housing for multiple size families. A sense of community was incorporated into the design by creating an entry gate and large interior landscaped courtyard to be used by shoppers as well as renters together. Rooftop patios were designed as places of gathering for the more private residential community.
Finally, a pathway from the interior gardens involved a set of cascading stairs down to the waterfront for everyone’s enjoyment.
