For those of you missing the Vancouver vibe in NYC, have no fear, Hunters Point South is here. In the years since the Hunters Point South master plan was approved in 2008, this stretch of the East River waterfront in Long Island City has continued it transformation from industrial .hinterland to a high-rise bedroom community.

Lying at the southwestern tip of the neighborhood, along the mouth of Newtown Creek, the Hunters Point South Master Plan is one of the city's most ambitious housing developments underway. Initiated by the Bloomberg administration, the nine-parcel scheme spans 30 acres and will host 5,000 apartments with 60% of units allocated to low- and moderate-income families. The latest phase to come online is named Gotham Point, a one-million-square-foot complex steered by Gotham Organization and RiseBoro Community Partnership. The two-towered project is rises from city-owned land and joins several other finished and underway towers as well as the recently opened Hunters Point South Park, which features a kayak launch and community boathouse, and PS 384, a new elementary school that opened its doors in September 2021.

Earlier this spring, Gotham Point welcomed its first residents. Current availabilities start at $3,646/month for studios, $3,688/month for one-beds, $5,626/month for two-beds, and $7,195/month for three-beds. The prices are net effective to reflect one month free rent as a welcome offer. The concession puts it roughly in line with the Long Island City median rent, which CityRealty listings show ranges from $3,210/month for studios to $7,210/month for three-bedrooms. Our listings also show only 62 available units for rent in Long Island City, the majority of which are located in the amenity-rich new rentals of recent years.
In 2017, the city selected Gotham Organization and RiseBoro Community Partnership Inc. to develop the plan's parcels F and G . The $500 million venture is composed of 1,100 apartments and approximately 40,000 square feet of retail and community facility space. A whopping 80% of units (roughly 900) are permanently affordable apartments, 93 of which are to be earmarked for seniors of varying income levels.
Last year, an affordable housing lottery for 270 units in the south tower from $397/month took place. New Yorkers all over the city were encouraged to apply, but preference for 50% of the units went to residents of Queens Community Board 2. If you missed that one, a lottery for apartments in the north tower is on the horizon. Approximately 100 apartments in the complex have been set aside for low-income seniors; these units will have their own dedicated amenities.

Many units at Gotham Point enjoy spectacular views through floor-to-ceiling windows, and all apartments feature:

  • Plank flooring
  • Complimentary window treatments
  • In-unit washer/dryer
  • Silestone quartz countertops, mosaic tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances in the kitchens
  • Silestone quartz countertops and state-of-the-art fixtures in the baths
