Flushing, New York
Perkins Eastman provided site planning and full architectural services for this 14-acre, 3.3M sf mixed-use complex near the heart of downtown Flushing. Developed by Muss Development Company, the project uniquely mixes residential units with a four-story big-box retail base. The entire complex includes 1,100 residential apartments divided among six residential towers, more than 880,000 sf of retail space with 33,000 sf reserved for restaurants and 50,000 sf for a grocery, and parking for 2,500 vehicles.

The residential units comprise a mixture of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, augmenting the housing options for a growing neighborhood that includes many businesses and cultural attractions, and offers proximity to major airports and highways, as well as convenient subway and LIRR access. With trains running on both sides and low-flying aircraft limiting the height of the residential towers to ten stories, the site constraints of the project are particularly challenging.

The project also includes a community center and the public promenade along Flushing Bay, the first phase of a larger waterfront master plan. The entire project will be constructed in three phases over a ten-year period.
