Queens’s second tallest tower and the tallest residential building outside of Manhattan isn’t up for grabs quite yet, but its unveiled its sky-high model apartments before it hits the rental market. The 647-foot Long Island City building known as Tower 28, taken from its address at 42-12 28th Street, will have 451 studios through three-bedrooms, with prices ranging from $1,900 to $7,500. There will also be one four-bedroom in the mix.
For those prices, renters will also get access to the standard slate of new moderate-luxury building amenities, like a a gym, resident lounge with terrace, children’s playroom, and a 24-hour concierge.
Developer Heatherwood Communities teamed up with Goldstein, Hill & West on the building and tapped MNS to market and list the building, and MNS’s interior design firm The Design High to furnish the model apartments. The apartments show off the building’s floor-to-ceiling windows, stainless steel GE appliances and Quartz countertops. Less apparent through the pictures are their Bosch front load washers and dryers (in every apartment), custom black out shades, and individual room controlled heating and air conditioning.
The building was originally slated to hit the market in the fall, but is now expected to take off in March.
The Citigroup building at 1 Court Square is officially Queens’s tallest building at 673 feet. If Durst Organization follows up with its rumored plans of building a 900-foot tower on an L-shaped lot behind the neighborhood’s clock tower, it would take the cake for the neighborhood’s tallest building.
