BRP, CNY Group to develop $407m transit-oriented building in Queens
Developer BRP Cos. and general contractor CNY Group have broken ground on The Crossing at Jamaica Station, a $407 million, two-building development in downtown Jamaica in the Queens borough of New York City.
The 669-unit affordable housing development will be situated at the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s (MTA) Jamaica Station, which features a link to AirTrain JFK, John F. Kennedy’s International Airport’s mass transit line.
The Crossing will feature a 30-story high-rise located at Archer Avenue and Sutphin Boulevard between the Long Island Rail Road and three MTA subway lines. The other building will span 15 stories.
In addition to housing, the property will feature 45,000 square feet of retail and community space and 187 above-grade parking spaces. The development is part of Greater Jamaica’s revival and represents the largest private investment in downtown Jamaica in decades, according to CNY Group.
