Urban Alloy Towers was also designed to use the “remnant spaces” of the surrounding intersection and elevated LIRR tracks. As such, those parts of the building extend outwards towards the street. From above, the towers sort of resemble a cross that’s been laid over the city streets.

The interior of the building, features a variety of housing types, plus retail space and commercial offices. There are also plans to build an expansive atrium for visitors to look down and see the transit hub from the center of the retail area. It’s rather unlikely that we’ll ever see the Urban Alloy Towers become a reality, but it’s certainly a unique and interesting design.

    The Queens Hub, slated for some unknown time, looks great and could be a boon for the area and the city in general. I lived in Queens and it is in desperate need of an upgrade; it being the largest and has the most ethnically diverse communities in the city. The plan looks like something meant for the twenty-third century; although the trains look like a throw back to the 1950′s. Would this hub shorten the time it takes to travel from Astoria to Jamaica (Queens and not the island) Hey mon welcome to Caribbean, how ya get here. I got here on the A.
