Property Description

Cushman and Wakefield is pleased to present the opportunity to acquire Astoria Cove (the “Project”), an 8.7 acre waterfront development site in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens. The site has been meticulously assembled over the past 37 years and has received approval from all required City and Government agencies to construct a ~2.2 million square foot mixed-use development which will transform Astoria’s waterfront and the Queens skyline. The mixed-use project was approved for approximately 1,700,000 residential square feet (25% of FAR must be affordable), nearly 110,000 square feet of retail, 300,000 square feet of parking, and roughly 62,248 square feet for a school.
The Astoria market continues to undergo a dramatic transformation, fueled by unprecedented population growth and the advent of major commercial and residential developments. With the momentum created by the Durst Organization’s proposed $1.5 billion (2,400 unit) Hallett’s Point development and numerous other projects already under construction, Astoria Cove is poised to benefit from the continued maturation of the market. Rapidly rising multifamily and condominium pricing and demand, make this a highly coveted investment opportunity.
It is extremely rare for the fee simple interest of a project of this magnitude to become available for purchase on premier undeveloped waterfront property. In fact, only two properties with over 2 million square feet of buildable potential have sold since 2009, and only one of these (Domino Sugar Factory) benefited from a waterfront location. The Project presents investors with the opportunity to transform the Queens waterfront in one of the nation’s top-performing submarkets.
