At Hunter’s Point South SHoP leveraged process innovation to raise the quality of facade construction in affordable New York City housing. 

A design and development team consisting of SHoP, Phipps Houses, Related Companies, Monadnock Construction, and Ismael Levya Architects was selected through a competitive process for the residential portion of the first phase of the Hunter’s Point South project. The project includes two mixed-use buildings comprising more than 900 housing units and roughly 20,000 square feet of new retail space. The first phase also includes five acres of new waterfront parkland and a new 1,100-seat intermediate and high school.

SHoP’s scope here centered on the design and delivery of all building enclosures. Deploying the efficiencies of an all-digital process, we were able to coordinate seamlessly with manufacturers to create facades with a look and finish that surpasses the quality of market-rate construction in the area.
