Luxury waterfont rental starts leasing next week


July 5, 2013 By Christian Murray

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, 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.

that thing was a pain in the neck working with variances all times, ruining many weekends for residents in 2012 and 2013 – DOB queens was unresponsive, prices are jerked up, view will disappear with affordable housing. lots of units to see neighbors in the other surrounding buildings.
Rent is too damn high

The best way to deal with the poor is to turn their neighborhoods into luxury co-ops so they can’t live there anymore!

Its a tried and true method of dealing with undesirable populations: the English did it to the Irish and the French and the Native Americans, its the American Way! And when you complain they say you are against “progress.” Well, your progress is my “degress.”

I’m in a shelter now, hoping to get a couch with a friend in Georgia.
