Queens, New York
Archer Green is a blend of mixed-income housing, commercial space, and community facility located on 168th Street in downtown Jamaica, Queens. The 420,000-square-foot building will provide 389 apartments and below grade parking. Apartment units are separated into two towers which share a lush roof terrace adjacent to several amenity spaces. As part of the sustainability goals, the building features a state-of-the-art sustainable power system: an on-site Resilient Power Hub (RPH) that collects and stores power for use in the event of an emergency and cuts back on daily operational costs.
The lower levels will provide a substantial community facility and retail frontage. As a result, Archer Green will play an important role in the revitalization of the neighborhood and bring hundreds of high quality housing units to Queens.
Occupancy is on track for 2021, and the project is targeting LEED Gold certification.
