Omni NY Breaks Ground on Jamaica Affordable MXU
Representatives of Omni New York LLC and city agencies broke ground on Archer Green Apartments, a 380-unit affordable housing project in Jamaica, Queens. The project, which will redevelop a former New York City Police Department parking garage, is the first to come out of the de Blasio administration’s Jamaica NOW Action Plan initiative announced in 2015.
Archer Green will also contain approximately 15,000 square feet of community facility space, and 68,800 square feet of retail and commercial space. “Jamaica’s transformation continues as we break ground on a long-awaited development that delivers on our promise to expand opportunities in Jamaica, including affordable housing,” said Queens Borough President Melinda Katz.
Work on the two-tower project is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2021. Co-founded in 2004 by former Major League Baseball first baseman Maurice Vaughan, Omni New York has developed more than 6,000 affordable units citywide.
