The first of seven buildings that will be constructed as part of the Hallets Point mega project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2017.

The company is set to break ground in October on what will eventually be a 2,200 unit complex, according to Jordan Barowitz, a spokesman for the Durst Organization, which is developing the project.

The entire development—to be built in seven phases—is expected to be completed in six years. The project will be located at the very end of the peninsula next to the Astoria Houses.

The 7-acre development site makes room for a public school, a supermarket and a waterfront esplanade.

Twenty percent of the 2,200 units will be offered at below market rate.

The 20 percent will be incorporated into each phase, including the first building that will consist of approximately 400 units.

Barowitz said the company will start marketing the first building at the end of 2016 as it builds up toward the lottery for the below market-rate apartments.

This is one of two mega housing projects that will change the Hallets Point peninsula

Alma Realty will be building the Astoria Cove development consisting of five residential buildings containing 1,700 units, 27 percent of which will be affordable.

Face it guys. We had it good for awhile. Time to search for a cheaper neighborhood that won’t get us killed. Maybe a couple places in the BX?

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
