East Coast 2 is part of a complex of seven East Coast Development buildings that lie at the north end of Hunter's Point on the former Pepsi Cola bottling plant site. They have transformed this Long Island City location from a post-industrial, contaminated waterfront to a vibrant and walkable neighborhood.
MNLA designed multiple spaces within East Coast 2, which include a publicly-accessible oasis adjacent to the building entrance, a dog run on the north side, a verdant vine-covered green wall on the south side of the parking garage, and a spectacular roof terrace for residents of the entire East Coast complex.
This one-acre terrace is located on the seventh floor above the parking garage. The generous and well-proportioned space offers a wealth of activities including outdoor dining, fitness and yoga area, sand volleyball, putting greens, tennis courts, a reflecting pool, playground, and a performance and sunning lawn as well as intimate spaces for small gatherings.
The landscape at East Coast 2 sets a benchmark for residential amenities in rental properties and transforms an otherwise blank garage roof into a valuable asset for residents of the entire East Coast complex.
