Foundations Progress at 42-62 Hunter Street in Hunters Point, Queens

Foundation work is progressing at 42-62 Hunter Street, the site of a 12-story mixed-use building in Hunters Point, Queens. Designed by Michael Kang Architect and developed by ZL 2720 LLC, the 125-foot-tall structure will yield 30,647 square feet of residential and retail space. JLS Group Construction LLC is the general contractor for the project, which is located at the corner of Hunter Street and 42nd Road. Xi Zhao of Hunter Square LLC previously filed permits for the development in late December 2020 and demolition of several low-rise structures on the site followed shortly after.

Photographs show the site surrounded by wooden boards with work proceeding below street level. The reinforced concrete foundation is substantially finished and ready for vertical progress on the superstructure. Steel rebar protrudes from the locations where the inner columns and walls will eventually be built up. We can expect the Edifice to rise above street level in the coming months and likely top out by the end of the year, given the relatively small scale of the complex.

The main rendering depicts the building clad in glass, with the ground floor being dedicated to the retail component. Horizontal strips of metal divide the reflective envelope’s uniform surface, while a pair of canopies hang over the sidewalk, one for each side of the structure facing the street.

42-62 Hunter Street will house 18,948 square feet of residential space with 27 units averaging 701 square feet apiece, as well as 3,357 square feet for commercial space. The development will also have a cellar and a 30-foot-long rear yard. The property is only one block east of the Queens Plaza subway station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. Also nearby to the north is the Queensboro Plaza station, serviced by the 7, N, and W trains and the Court Square station to the west, serviced by the 7 and G trains.

A completion date for 42-62 Hunter Street is stated on the board for summer 2023.
