Huge Jamaica Project Takes Major Step Towards Being Real

New, 4 comments

BRP Companies has finally filed permits for the major mixed-use development on the corner of Archer Avenue and Sutphin Boulevard in Jamaica that's been rumored since the group picked up the site in 2014. The AirTrain-hugging development will consist of two towers that share space between retail, a church, and apartments, YIMBY says. The first building at 147-22 Archer Avenue will be the taller of the two at 26 stories and have 450 apartments and 96,100 square feet of retail. 147-34 Archer Avenue will rise 14 stories and have 130 apartments and a 17,100-square-foot church on its first two floors. BRP has said that about a quarter of the apartments will be priced below market rate. At a cost of $300 million, the project has been referred to as "the largest private investment in the area in decades."

FXFOWLE is designing the building, which will take the name The Crossing kind of like a lot of other new developments. The filing comes with a new rendering (↑) by way of YIMBY.
