These housing lottery units are in The Crossing at Jamaica Station, a new-construction two-building complex that is expected to receive LEED Silver certification for its energy efficiency and “green” roof. The complex is ideally suited for commuters, just steps away from the J, Z, and E trains at Sutphin Boulevard/Archer Avenue and the LIRR and AirTrains at Jamaica Station.
