Court Square condo hits the market for $3 million

3mFeb. 13, 2014 By Christian Murray

A large Court Square condo was put on the market yesterday for $3 million—representing one of the highest asking prices for a condo in Long Island City.

The condo, located at 26-26 Jackson Avenue, has four bedrooms, a formal dining room and plenty of storage space, according to Jermain Miller, the agent for Douglas Elliman who is selling the property.

Miller believes that $3 million is the second highest asking price for a Long Island City condo, behind a listing at the View, a highly prized building located at 46-30 Center Boulevard. However, that condo was significantly smaller than the 2,500 sqf. Jackson Avenue property, Miller said.

“The [Jackson Ave.] condo is perfect for a family with two kids who want a live-in maid or an extended family member to live with them,” Miller said. He said the condo not only has 2,500 square feet of interior space but comes with 1,500 sqf. of exterior/balcony space.

Miller said a 2,500 sqf. apartment in Manhattan would cost between $5 million and $6 million, and would not include the exterior space.

The condo has 16 ft. ceilings along with south, west and north exposed floor-to-ceiling windows.

Check out how the real-estate agent made a desperate post about the condo under “Anonymous” LOL

This is a suckers purchase because the next building will block the view of this one. LIC has a lot of gentrifying to do.

Everett, I was talking about Manhattan prices 1 stop in. The no-brainer is that Hunter’s Point pricing is a huge savings just 1 stop away from Manhattan.

I don’t think Anon’s information is correct. The median price in LIC would probably range from $800/sf to $1100/sf especially near the waterfront.

Buying in LIC is a no-brainer. The average median price/sqft 1 train stop into midtown Manhattan is over $1600/sqft, for new construction it’s probably closer to $2000/sqft. The area around here has new parks and new schools, and free parking (at least for now). There’s also more upside possible here, although it’s catching up.

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.
