Global Design Strategies NY (GDSNY) has completed the facade and repositioning design for a 1,093 residential project in the Far Rockaway’s in New York City.
Covering over 15 acres and comprising 11 low rise, mid rise and high rise residential buildings as well as parking and retail facilities, the project developers engaged GDSNY to design a striking contemporary language for the building exteriors, as part of the revitalization of this well established Queens beachfront community. Renovations for the broader project include comprehensive façade and roof insulation and waterproofing, a major infrastructure modernization, interior renovations to all 1,093 apartments as well as a substantial landscape and hardscape revitalization, and project rebranding. The existing property is a section 8 housing complex that was damaged by Hurricane Sandy. Construction is complete. In collaboration with OCV Architects.
