Hunters Point South Development ProjectApril 11, 2011 / Long Island City Real Estate / Queens Real Estate / Queens Buzz. This winter I attended the state of the borough address given by Helen Marshall and a presentation about Queens economic development given by NYC deputy mayor of economic development, Robert K. Steel.

This report captures some of the comments they made about the large-scale real estate development project at Hunters Point South which will include a large condominium complex and retail space in Long Island City. I supplemented what I heard with considerable additional research and investigation.

Hunters Point South will take several years to erect, but work will begin this year to prepare the site with city infrastructure to support it. Click here to read more about Hunters Point Development in Long Island City Queens.

Condos In LIC - Hunters Point Development

In the past five years Jackson Avenue has been renovated with new walks and a boulevard-like separation adorned with plant life. Queens Plaza is still in the process of numerous changes, the most recent of which has been the erection of Gotham Center. The city and contractors are still in the process of creating a new park along Queens Blvd by the Queens Borough and Queens Plaza subway stops.

And over the past ten years several large skyscrapers have shot up along Center Street overlooking the East River and Manhattan, while Gantry Park was being renovated. The graphic rendition above right shows one of the sketches of Hunters Point South, a development designed to enhance the Long Island City neighborhood just south of Gantry Park.

On the south side there will be Newton Creek, along the west side there will be the East River, and underneath it all will be the Midway Tunnel and the subway lines.
