Downtown Far Rockaway Village

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, and will complete the first three buildings in the master plan. The structures' height ranges between eight and fifteen stories, including 100,000 square feet of commercial space, a new plaza, and underground parking lot.
