5 Pointz Towers
5Pointz is a newly constructed skyline complex located in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens. Positioned at 22-44 Jackson Avenue, this building consists of 1115 residential units spread across 48 stories, with two residential towers rising above a common 5-story podium. The property offers a wide range of amenities, including basement storage, a bike room, children's playroom, courtyard, event room, fitness center, game room, laundry facilities, lounge, on-site parking, pet grooming and pet services, a pool, as well as racquetball and basketball courts.
The connecting podium of the complex serves multiple purposes, encompassing an enclosed commercial garage, an art gallery, and artist studios. DM Engineers, in collaboration with Praxis Work Shop Inc., played a pivotal role in the final stages of this monumental construction project. Their involvement as the applicant of record and owner representative was instrumental in securing occupancy approvals from various New York City regulatory agencies.
DM Engineers' contributions to the project included extensive construction administration support. They assisted the project manager by clarifying construction documents, conducting site visits at regular intervals to monitor work progress and ensure compliance with construction specifications, revising construction documents as necessary, verifying contractor payment requests, and keeping the owner informed about project status. Additionally, DM Engineers aided the project manager in reviewing the construction's status to determine substantial completion and final completion dates. This comprehensive support was vital in successfully bringing the 5Pointz complex to fruition.
