The latest luxury rental building to be developed alongside the East River starts leasing next week.
The 12-story building, called Gantry Park Landing, is located at 50-01 Second Avenue, and provides plenty of amenities to pamper and entertain residents.
Brokers will begin leasing the 199-unit building on July 12 and will offer prospective tenants a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments that range from 460 to 1,256 square feet.
Rents start at $1,875 for a studio; $2,450 for a one-bedroom; $3,250 for a two-bedroom; two-bath; and $4,650 for a three-bedroom, three-bath home, according to aptsandlofts.com, which is the exclusive marketing and leasing agent.
The developer, The Lightstone Group, a large NYC-based privately-held real estate company, is also offering prospective tenants with an incentive: one month free rent and no brokerage fees.
The building was designed to incorporate industrial elements with 21st-century luxury. The developer’s goal was to create an industrial feel to reflect the neighborhood’s manufacturing past.
The building incorporates an exterior made from exposed poured concrete with modern interior finishes and floor-to-ceiling glass.
The luxury amenities include a furnished roof deck with an outdoor grill and fireplace, a game room with ping pong and billiards, as well as a gym with a yoga studio.
The building is just the latest luxury waterfront building to start renting in recent months. TF Cornerstone opened its fifth high-rise in the neighborhood at 4545 Center Blvd. this spring.
