AKI Development—the developers behind Astoria’s Graffiti House—are bringing another rental project to the neighborhood, this time opting for a Scandinavian-inspired luxury boutique building with just nine residences.
The Nordic, as the project has been named is located at 23-67 31st Street, alongside the elevated tracks for the N and W subway lines. There are eight one-bedrooms and one two-bedroom penthouse, with each unit featuring an open floorplan and 10-foot-high ceilings. Nearly all of the units have private outdoor spaces.
The building is being touted as “the most technologically advanced residential building in Queens” since it offers keyless entry throughout the entire building, LED lighting throughout, radiant heated floors in each apartment and on the terraces; touchless-flush toilets, and smart home automation systems.
Similar to Graffiti House, art plays a role in the design of the Nordic. Developers collaborated with Sweden-based muralist Tony “Rubin” Sjöman to created several murals throughout the project, including an eight-story installation within the elevator shaft that can be seen through a glass viewing wall.
As for building amenities, the Nordic boasts a fitness center that’s inspired by designs of Finnish saunas, shared bikes for residents, bicycle storage, and storage spaces. There is also a landscaped roof deck with an outdoor kitchen, barbecue areas, and views of Queens and Manhattan, as well as the Triborough and Hell’s Gate bridges.
Leasing has recently launched with prices starting at $2,995 and move-ins are expected to begin in September.
