The Crossing at Jamaica Station

Features:

  • The development includes a 30-story high-rise, 14-story mid- rise, parking for 176 vehicles and 25,000 SF of ground floor retail. The high-rise offers 539 rental units, while the mid-rise offers 120 affordable housing units. The high-rise has community, residential, and amenity space on the 4th floor, and residential units from the 4th to 30th floors.
  • Precast panel facade with metal and glass articulation will create a dynamic visual presence.
  • The project is targeting a minimum LEED Silver certification.
  • CNY worked to engage M/WBE trades and encouraged all trades to hire local workers.
  • Budget constraints demanded intensive value engineering. CNY worked with designers to develop alternative foundation and structural design, and mechanical, electrical and exterior facade systems, resulting in a more efficient building and over 20 percent in savings from original estimates.
