Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Gotham Organization, the building will hold 443 residential units, a portion of which will be dedicated to affordable housing. Included will be a lower-level community facility for Flux Factory and for kayak rentals. The site is located by the intersection of Second Street and 56th Avenue.
