TF Cornerstone is not shy about touting its success.

The real estate giant announced today that 80% of its apartments at its 45-45 Center Boulevard complex have been leased—just five months after its June 1 launch.

The 41 story building, which has 820 units, continues to draw families, young couples and professionals, the company said.

While the building has plenty of amenities, quality fixtures as well as Manhattan skyline views—prospective tenants pay for such luxuries.

Those apartments that are still available start as low as $2,750 per month.

“Leasing 80 percent of the units in a very short window of time reflects the growing popularity of Long Island City waterfront properties,” said Sofia Estevez, Executive Vice President of TF Cornerstone, in a statement.

rents that start as LOW as $2750??? find some hipsters that couldnt afford Brooklyn – after the Sandy Storm I want to live right on the water…not!


The building is very nice, but the shape of alot of the apts have weird angles since they made the exterior look like a wave. Also, charging $50/person/month on top of rent for the amenities… so for a couple its an extra $1200/year added to the rent. A nice hidden charge. If you take advantage of everything its not a terrible rate, since a gym membership alone can be over $50/month, but still… hidden costs.
