This bank branch is located as just one storefront in a much larger shopping center along the Cross Island Parkway. While much of the retail space reads as contemporary, the bank space still has some marble cladding at the storefront level and some original metal detailing as well.
This major housing complex is largely unknown outside of Queens, tucked away as it is on the waterfront in Whitestone. Comprising more than 3,000 apartments over 32 buildings, originally there were four apartments per floor on each building meaning that each apartment had a corner terrace. The campus also includes swimming pools, tennis courts, a beach, and other recreation facilities.
The last major development of a community on this curve of land in Whitestone, along with Cryder Point Apartments and Levitt House, this 20 story building dominates the shoreline. The building includes a wide curving entrance canopy, glass terraces, and a private beach to take advantage of the location and only occupies 10% of the expansive site. Privacy is a distinct consideration with a gatehouse, on property parking, and a brick wall surrounding the property. Hausman & Rosenberg were chosen for this last piece while George Miller did the lower-rise adjoining developments.
