Hunters Point South Infrastructure
VJ Associates was selected by ARUP to provide cost estimating services for the development of Hunter's Point South Infrastructure, 30-acres of land located along the East River in Long Island City, NY. The Master Plan, produced by the NYC EDC, includes "five million square feet of housing, local retail, community facilities, and a new public school." Also included in the plan are 11-acres that have been set aside for the development of a waterfront park.
VJ Associates considered all elements of both the community and waterfront park developments when estimating costs. Some of the more challenging elements specific to this project include sanitary sewer, drainage and outfall reconstruction, unconventional storm water management, and bulkhead/shoreline reconstruction.
Demolition and site clearing began on the residential and retail development site in November, according to this Crain's New York Business article.
