In Astoria, construction has topped out at 20 and 30 Halletts Point, the 647-unit, mixed-use complex being developed by the Durst Organization, in partnership with NYCHA’s Astoria Houses, and designed by Handel Architects. The first tower now stands 27 stories tall, while the other rises 32 stories.
Halletts Point will eventually deliver 2,000 residential rental units and will encompass a new public waterfront esplanade and park, as well as neighborhood retail. During construction, The Durst Organization partnered with ArtBridge to install a 600-foot mural along the site’s construction fencing. The public art exhibition and augmented reality (AR) experience, titled A City in Motion, was created by Astoria-based artist Zeehan Wazed inspired by his work with the NYCHA Astoria Houses.
20 and 30 Halletts Point represent the second major phase of development on the peninsula’s waterfront, following the completion of 10 Halletts Point in 2019. In addition to 10 Halletts Point, the Durst Organization recently opened 3-24 27th Avenue in Astoria, a fully affordable development with 163 homes and amenities. Construction on Halletts Point is expected to be completed in 2025.
