TF Cornerstone has just begun leasing 46-10 Center Boulevard, its sixth and final luxury building on the Long Island City waterfront, with rents ranging from $2,200 to $6,000 per month.
The 26-story tower, which curves around LIC’s famous Pepsi sign, features an array of amenities and outdoor space.
The building, which has 584 units, comes with a fitness center, a landscaped terrace and private garden area. The apartments feature stainless steel appliances, glossy white cabinets, custom closets, wood strip floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
However, these luxuries do cost.
Studios are going for between $2,200 to $3,010; Studio Alcoves $2,990 to $3,200; 1 Bedrooms $2,800 to $4,100; 2 Bedrooms $3,890 to $6,100; and 3 Bedrooms $5,705 – $6000.
“The opening of this building is a significant milestone in the history of the New York City waterfront and is a true sign of the area’s immense residential transformation since its days as an industrial hub,” said Sofia Estevez, Executive Vice President for TF Cornerstone.
TF Cornerstone developed and owns 4540, 4545, 4615 and 4720 Center Boulevard.
It also developed 4630 Center Boulevard, a condo building known as “The View.”
What flood zone are these buildings in?
No neighborhood in any major city is the way it used to be! That’s what cities do…they grow and change and adapt.
Court Square is far from crowded. Clearly we both live here. When was the last time you walked outside on a weekend to see the same level of commotion as you do in Hunters Point? I’m not saying it’s desolate, but it sure as hell now crowded.
You might prefer that Court Square remain under the radar, as it is today. But until people actually start living here, instead of just “passing through,” businesses won’t choose our neighborhood as a place to set up shop, and we’ll be stuck with the small handful of places that we have now. Is that what you want?
There won’t be any initiative to clean up (and build up) the area until there are enough residents to warrant it. And right now, there aren’t enough. There are benefits to living in a neighborhood with scale. We HAVE to grow.
Do not listen to the poster above. No one should move to the Court Square area. It’s already too crowded and will be worse when the new buildings go up. (especially the monstrosity that will be replacing 5Pointz)
The HS kids at the technology school and the tourists/people who work in the area are keeping it dirty. There’s so much trash on the steps to the train stations and every day in front of my building, there’s new garbage on the floors. No one cares. It’s a giant commuter hub now and that doesn’t help the residents who live there.
No area in LIC is what it used to be.
Unless I’m mistaken, TF Cornerstone doesn’t do rent controlled buildings. So, now that they’ve finished their final building, and Hunters Point South’s market rate units aren’t slated to be completed for a while, expect your rents to go up. Hunters Point still has lots it can develop, but none as large as the parcels that TF Cornerstone was building on. Everyone else will either have to get keys to smaller buildings being built, or see the prices start rising now that we’re reaching saturation. Tons of space here in Court Square, though! Bring us your priced-out, your hungry, your huddled masses!
Within 5 years they will price out all their original tenants
Same finishes as the other buildings
And an extra 50.00 a person for the gym
Across the street no – less.
Let’s face it – you are paying for the view.
You’re damn right it’s a “milestone in the history of the New York City waterfront.” But it’s nothing anyone should be especially proud of.
I wouldn’t even pay $6,000 a month to rent the Taj f_cking Mahal.
there goes the hood
