52-03 and 52-41 Center Boulevard nearing completion in Hunters Point South, Queens
Exterior work is nearing completion on 52-03 Center Boulevard, a 587-foot-tall skyscraper in Hunters Point, Queens, and its shorter, 475-foot-tall brother at 52-41 Center Boulevard. Designed by ODA Architecture with SLCE Architects as the benchmark architect, the 46- and 56-story towers are part of TF Cornerstone’s Hunters Point South development, which is expected to produce a total of 1,194 residential units. Of these, 719 will be designated for affordable housing. Center Boulevard 52-03 and 52-41 are located along the waterfront esplanade of the East River and are bounded by Center Boulevard to the west, Borden Avenue to the north, 2nd Street to the east and 54th avenue south.
Since our last update in April, almost all of the remaining facade panels have been installed on the larger 52-03 Center Boulevard. The outer winch is still attached to the northeast corner and the gap in the curtain wall behind it will need to be filled after dismantling.
The towers feature a cohesive architectural design with a mix of large windows and dark paneling. Their volumes present a number of salient volumes, which create an interesting play of light and shadows throughout the day.

YIMBY last reported that the 534 units for residents are available on NYC Housing Connect at 40 to 165% of the area’s median income (AMI) and that the qualifying income ranges from $ 20,606 to $ 212,685.
