“The completion of this development is an exciting milestone for Falcon Pacific and the Saab Family LP. The project will provide a mix of affordable rental housing options in the highly sought-after neighborhood of Astoria,” said Joe Caraciolo, Chief Operating Officer of Falcon Pacific Builders, LLC.

The architect for the development is Matt Markowitz, AIA. The building will provide tenants with recreational space amenities, common spaces in the basement and a rear tenant courtyard.
