Following Lennar's April reveal of the design of their first two Hunters Point residential blocks, the megadeveloper yesterday showed off their third and fourth: condos comprised of 66 townhouses and 93 flats. City Insider, on the homes:
(They're) designed with glass, corrugated steel, stucco and wood features. Roofs sport solar panels, garages are mostly in back to make sidewalks feel pedestrian friendly and maximize street parking. Fifteen percent of the units are affordable homes. All of the townhouses have either decks or open space on the ground floor. This past spring, BDE Architecture's designs for the redevelopment's "opening act" were compared to the Mission Bay's design aesthetic. Now, architect Kava Massih (for this most recent reveal) says "the challenge is to make it look like it's organically grown over time." Sounds like Mission Bay's maybe not the thing to shoot for anymore. Update: The condos will be priced from the $400Ks to the $700Ks, with construction starting perhaps by the middle of next year.
