The latest crop of high-end Queens Plaza apartments is now available for lease, with prices starting at $2,570 for a one bedroom and $5,100 for a three bedroom.
The apartments are located above the 160-room Marriott Courtyard hotel that opened at 29-11 Queens Plaza North in May. The units, 132 in all, occupy floors 15-29, with the hotel the first 14 floors.
Most of the apartments provide panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline, the East River and iconic city bridges.
The apartment complex, called Aurora, comes with a separate lobby and elevator from the Marriott Courtyard. Most of the units are one or two bedrooms. There are no studios.
The units include floor-to-ceiling windows, nine to eleven-foot ceiling heights, wide plank oak flooring and solar shades. The kitchens are outfitted with white quartz countertops, Bertazzoni stainless steel gas ranges, ovens and stoves, Bosch built-in dishwashers and paneled Leibherr built-in refrigerators.
The building has been developed by G. Holdings and designed by Michael Arad of Handel Architect.
Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is handling the marketing and leasing efforts for the project.
“Long Island City is such an exciting and thriving destination in New York City, convenient to Manhattan, but with a great identity of its own and absolutely beautiful skyline views,” said Etai Gross, a principal at G. Holdings.
The building’s top floor, which is aptly called the “Aurora Sky Lounge,” is outfitted with a state-of-the-art fitness center, double-height residents’ lounge, and rooftop sun deck, and views of the Manhattan and Long Island City skyline.
Tenants will be able to start occupy the building starting Aug. 1.
