Yesterday we mentioned that liQcity had the scoop on the naming of the Robert Scarano-designed condo building rising at 26-26 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City. The building, called Vere (not to be confused with Jean Nouvel's Tower Verre, of course) will have 43 units, and represents another step in the reinvention of Jackson Avenue, which is getting a landscaped center divider and new greenery, etc. Today, we received some additional info on Vere, so we thought we'd share these fun facts. The project is billed as "the only curtain wall building in Long Island City," so glass haters beware. The units will range in size from 479 square feet to 1,190 (studios to 2BRs), and the penthouse will have 13'6" ceilings. Floor-to-ceiling windows, obvs, and a roof deck. The prolific Andrés Escobar designed the lobby and interiors, and that looks to be a penthouse gym seen in the rendering above. Who needs TVs on a treadmill when you have the sights of Jackson Avenue?
