JFA was commissioned by Meadow Partners to design a residential building for the burgeoning residential neighborhood on Crescent Street in Long Island City. The project, which is approximately 50,000 sf, will be a 13-story building consisting of 48 rental units including a penthouse unit. Of the building’s 4 facades, 2 will be on the lot lines. The other two facades are to be articulated in brick and metal and are designed to reflect the industrial legacy of the area the building will sit in. The façade is visually split creating the impression of two very slender adjacent buildings in the massing. The taller section of the two, reflects the Penthouse unit at the top.
