Luxury Rental Building Filling Up At Queens Plaza

Overall Exterior Perspective

Sept. 22, Staff Report

The luxury rental tower QLIC has leased more than a third of its apartments six weeks after opening, developers announced Monday.

QLIC is located at 41-42 24th St. The 421-unit tower contains mostly one-bedroom apartments, with some two-bedrooms, studios, and a small number of three-bedrooms.

World Wide Group, the project’s developer, said that so far renters are predominantly young professionals and families.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming our new residents, and anticipate a rapid lease-up over the coming months,” Rachel Loeb, Director of Development at World Wide Group, said in a statement.

QLIC opened for leasing roughly six weeks ago.

Amenities at the building include a pool, fitness center, outdoor barbeques and picnic areas and private balconies and terraces.

Per the QLIC website, currently available studios start at $2,345 per month, one bedrooms at $2,539, two-bedrooms at $3,761 and three-bedrooms at $4,607.

Silent majority

While I have no interest in this property what soever I will try to be objective. The surrounding area has a seedy dirty feel to it. Can you take a nice walk outside on a nice autumn night and it not feel so desolate and dark. This is a major transfer/ transportation hub and after a certain its pretty empty. Also I think is relatively close to the always attractive Queensbridge houses.

We have visited the place end of July. None of the supposedly 1 bedroom aprts at around $2,539 were available. What a surprise! All the units we were invited to visit were around $3000 or more. Their website is purely deceptive. Plus amenities are only included in the rent for the first year. and after that it is, i think, $200 per month extra. + you have to pay for the gym too.
Let’s not forget this building is right in front of the subway rails. The view from many aparts is just depressing. And even though they did try to isolate them from the noise, there is nothing much that a window can do when a 7 train is coming full speed and braking in hellish noise.
I am amazed they got a third of the units rented already. Probably the units far from the main street. I don’t understand why somebody would pay more than $3000 for a one-bedroom in that industrial and noisy environment without any of the facilities of the building included, when for that price you would get an apartment on the shore, with facilities and with a park near by.

You could own a house with land for that monthly rate! Never never would I pay that for an apartment!

Seeing the terms “luxury” and “Queens Plaza” in the same sentence never fails to blow my mind. Who would have thunk it?

Let’s not forget that the amenities cost extra and not all of them are even built yet at QLIC. Plenty of other luxury buildings with similar amenities in the area with comparable rates! We toured this place and felt like the marketing was a bit deceptive (the picture in this article, for example, is pretty ‘glorified’ from its reality).

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.
