Rego Park Development is a +5 acre site in Queens, adjacent to the Long Island Expressway. It includes 7 levels of retail and garage set in a two building base bisected by a street level galleria with a 300 ft. residential tower built on the roof of the retail base. WDLA tasks included designs for the street level galleria, the multi-use building terrace, streetscape, greening of the garage facade and connection to an existing NYC Park. WDLA’s work required coordination with three architectural consultants and the Queens office of the Department of City Planning.
The design for the shopping galleria which has become a major shopping destination in the area provides street level access to the retail buildings as well as providing a link between the busy commercial activities of Junction Boulevard with the surrounding residential neighborhood.
