Units in 27-story condo building hit the market


Sept. 26, 2016 By Hannah Wulkan

Sales have officially launched for apartments in Long Island City’s tallest condo building, which is scheduled to be completed next year.

The Harrison, which will be 27 stories and located at 27-21 44th Drive, will be the tallest condo building when it opens in May 2017. It will contain 120 units, including one, two and three bedroom apartments, which will range in price from $470,000 to $2.5 million.

Silvercup Properties is the developer and Long Island City-based real estate firm Modern Spaces is selling the units.

“Residences at The Harrison will have unmatched views of New York City,” said CEO and founder of Modern Spaces Eric Benaim in a statement.

“We expect these homes to sell quickly. Court Square is a sought after neighborhood of Long Island City where condominiums in full-service, amenity-rich buildings are in high demand. The Harrison also offers units with ample outdoor spaces—a coveted feature in any New York City market.”

The units each feature stainless steel appliances, Technistone countertops and Shaker-style cabinetry, and certain units have views of the Manhattan skyline, and balconies or terraces.

The building will also have a 24-hour attended lobby, a fitness center, a children’s playroom and an indoor/outdoor rooftop lounge.

The building is near the E, M, 7, and G trains at the Court Square subway stop.

Silvercup Properties also developed The Industry, another luxury apartment building nearby on 44th Drive.

where’d you find the sq footage?

You can’t raise a family in there.
just more proof MOdern spaces cares less about the residents of LIC.


Even though the brick facade differs from our recent influx of stale steel and glass it’s still stale about 10 stories in. Especially with the balconies protruding.

Another tasteless project


Shut up Eric! What a buffoon stating anything about views when the location couldn’t be worse.

I’ll say it again…..modern spaces doesn’t do shit for this neighborhood. They work with these developers from the conceptual design and choose interiors as well. Yet, they sell to so many investors that it doesn’t do anything for our neighborhood. Still a transient area due to this fact
The finishes in these buildings are way overpriced. Look at what’s selling in Brooklyn and compare it to LIC.

The Industry is cheap garbage too.

Bed Stuy is getting nicer finishes than us!

Queens Borough President Donovan Richards held a candlelight vigil for Tyre Nichols outside Queens Borough Hall Monday, Jan. 30 after Nichols’ death at the hands of police officers in Memphis, Tenn., made national headlines for the brutality in which the officers beat him.

Long Island City teen sentenced in fatal shooting of ‘beloved’ school teacher at Queensbridge Houses in 2020: DA

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.

Ike Ford, 19, of 12th Street, in Long Island City, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder.
