Long Island City, Queens: TF Cornerstone began leasing its 45-45 Center Boulevard waterfront tower today and some prospective tenants might be in for some sticker shock.
The lowest priced studio will cost $2,300—while the most affordable 3brm will set a tenant back $5,390.
The 41-story building, which consists of 820 apartments, is comprised of 173 studios, 364 1brms, 250 2brms and 33 3brms.
Those tenants who are prepared to pony up with the cash are likely to receive quality.
The apartments will include hardwood floors, gourmet kitchens and stainless steel appliances. Furthermore, there are floor-to-ceiling windows along the building’s glass façade, which maximize views of the East River, Gantry Plaza State Park and Manhattan.
4545 Center Boulevard features a lobby designed by Rockwell Group, a richly finished lounge, and a modern fitness center. The building also touts more than 50,000 square feet of outdoor facilities on a landscaped terrace off the seventh floor.
Outdoor amenities include a real sand beach volleyball court, two tennis courts, a reflecting pool, dog run, sprawling lawn, and sun deck with BBQ grills, lounge chairs and benches. Other amenities include club rooms with a catering kitchen, bicycle storage, indoor parking garage and a 24-hour concierge and valet.
There is also an indoor children’s playroom.
