Far Rockaway - Phase 1

In the center of Downtown Far Rockaway in Queens, Marvel is currently working on an ambitious project to bring 1,700 new affordable housing units to an under-utilized site between the A train terminus and the Long Island Rail Road and create more vibrant, supportive community through socially thoughtful design.



The first phase began construction in the fall of 2018, will complete the first three buildings in the master plan, ranging in height between eight and fifteen stories, and including the 100,000 SF of commercial space, the new plaza, and the underground parking lot.
