Archer Green

Queens, New York

Located on 168th Street, in Jamaica, Queens, Archer Green is a new 540,000-square foot, 100-percent affordable housing complex which benefits residents and families in downtown Jamaica. The project brings 387 new apartments and 150 valet parking spaces, along with a 15,000 square foot community facility to the neighborhood. Additionally, it houses a 70,000 square foot commercial space, which will host a low-cost grocery store that will provide high-quality fresh food and produce to the area.

The building will achieve LEED Gold status and incorporates several green technologies that will improve building operations and increase resiliency including solar panels, electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, an onsite Resilient Power Hub (RPH), a state-of-the-art battery energy storage system that can provide back-up power in the event of a black out, and a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system.

Developed by Omni New York, with the support of EDC, HPD, and HDC, Archer Green plays an important role in the revitalization of Jamaica under the 2015 Jamaica NOW Action Plan.
