QUEENS (PIX11) -- As a construction team prepares to tear down 5 Pointz, renderings of what will replace the graffiti mecca have been released.

The two giant towers will be built in the next three to five months.

Together, the buildings will have 1,000 rental units, including penthouses and affordable housing.

There will also be a pool, a courtyard and an art wall.

One of the towers will also have retail stores.

The permits to build the towers were filed last week.
