Archer Green

Queens, New York

Archer Green is a blend of mixed-income housing, commercial space, and community facility on 168th Street in downtown Jamaica, Queens. The 420,000-square-foot building will provide 389 apartments and below grade parking. The apartment units are separated into two residential towers which share a lush terrace at the roof of the base. A prime feature is the building’s 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 cuts back on daily operational costs.

The lower levels will provide a substantial community facility and additional retail frontage. As a result, Archer Green plays an important role in the revitalization of the neighborhood.

Occupancy is planned for 2021 and is targeting LEED Gold certification.
