In Long Island City’s Hunters Point neighborhood, two low-rise buildings are currently in the midst of being transformed into a boutique condo project, and today, the project’s developer, Ascent Development, is offering up the first of what will be five condos, on the market.

At 10-27 47th Road, Ascent demolished a wood-frame house to build a three-story townhouse with just three condos. It’s one of those condos, that’s now on the market for $2.175 million. This particular unit—Penthouse B—comes with three bedrooms, and three bathrooms and measures 1,581 square feet, not including the 420 square feet of outdoor space.

The other homes in this building are another three-bedroom, three-bathroom penthouse apartment spanning 1,547 square feet, with 624 square feet of outdoor space. On the lower level, there’s a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom garden apartment that measures just a little under 2,100 square feet. This apartment also has the largest outdoor space among all five condos: a 1,111-square-foot backyard.

At 10-18 47th Avenue, which is just a block away from the other property, Ascent is converting a three-story, three-unit home into a two-unit condo building. There will be a garden-level apartment with 2,662 square feet of space and an additional 831 square feet of outdoor space. We don’t however have the specifics on the number of bedrooms in that condo. The one above that however will be a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home spanning 2,050 square feet (and 812 square feet of outdoor space).

The buildings, known as Griffin Townhouses, were designed by Jorge Mastropietro’s JMA Design Workshop, and the condos will come with high ceilings, white oak floors, and large windows. The kitchens will come fitted with Miele appliances, Caesarstone Quartz countertops, and the master bedrooms feature en suite bathrooms and walk-in closets.

Ascent has brought on Halstead and Modern Spaces to manage sales and marketing on the building. The entire project is supposed to wrap construction by the end of the summer this year.
