Two of the five buildings that make up Flushing Commons, the 1.8 million square foot megaproject in the neighborhood, have topped out, YIMBY first reported.
The two buildings are part of the first phase of the project. One is a 14-story residential condo building located at 138-35 39th Avenue, and the other is an 11-story office condo building located at 38-18 Union Street.
Almost all the apartments in the condo building are already in contact, and earlier this month developers launched sales on the 18 penthouses in the building that are located on the upper floors. Prices for those range from $968,000 to $3 million, and the one-to-four bedroom penthouses vary in size from 720 square feet to 2,250 square feet.
Amenities in the residential building include a residents' lounge with an eco-friendly fireplace, a chef's demonstration kitchen, a library and reading area, a bar and a dining room, and a fitness center.
Both the residential and office building were designed by Perkins Eastman with landscape work by Thomas Balsley Associates. Construction work on both is expected to wrap up by the end of the year.
Flushing Commons will be completed in two phases. The overall project includes residential, office, retail, community space, and parking. The project also includes a 1.5 acre open air public plaza.
The megaproject is a collaboration between developers F&T Group, The Rockefeller Group and AECOM Capital.
