Apartments in the box-style building located across the street from MoMA PS 1 are now available, with monthly rents ranging from $2,200 to $6,500 per month.

The 175-unit, 11-story building is called 2222 Jackson and consists of studio to three-bedroom apartments.

The building has been described by its designer as blurring the line “between functional design and a work of art.”

“2222 Jackson Avenue presents a playful façade where the projected bays offer outdoor spaces to the apartments,” said Eran Chen, founder and executive director of ODA New York.

Move in is expected to begin in early June, a spokesperson said.

There are 53 studios, 79 one-bedrooms, 29 two-bedrooms and 14 three-bedrooms. Studios start at $2,195, one-bedrooms at $2,895, two-bedrooms and $3,995 and three-bedrooms at $5,195, the spokesperson said.

An “amenity club” on the building’s third floor – which costs $600 per year to join – includes a fitness center, indoor skylit swimming pool, landscaped terrace and lounge with WiFi, TVs and ping pong.

The apartments feature floor-to-ceiling windows and white oak hardwood flooring throughout, as well as solid core doors. The kitchens have stone countertops and Blomberg and Bosch appliances.

Triumph Property Group is leasing the building and has an on-site leasing gallery.

The NYC Parks department charges $150 a year (much less for seniors and students) for an annual membership that allows the use of any of their gyms/pools throughout NYC and there are quite a few.

Good point Eli. I’ll gladly pay $50 a month for gym and swimming pool access in that building as long as I can walk around the block from where i currently live and not actually live there. My current rent for the entire first floor of a house plus the backyard is several hundred a month less than a studio at this building. Anyone paying $2195 for a studio is a dupe.

I wonder why this building changed from condos to rentals? Seems like there’s a bigger buying market in LIC now.

Hmmmm

There’s no way they could have sold these as condos.

The floor plans are not big enough

Not really accurate at all. Those rents are pretty standard for what they’re offering and where the building is located. Overdeveloped? Maybe 3-5 years down the road but it certainty isn’t right now.

The apartments are significantly smaller than what some of the other buildings offer

Also, there is no physical oven in either the studio or 1bed homes. there is a small 4 burner gas stove and convection microwave / oven

Exactly. Unfortunately they are being rented even after these new units come to market $200-300 higher in price compared to last year.

The studios are not averaging around $2500 in their buildings. Absolutely insane price points.

$2,200 a month and they have the gall to charge an extra $600 to use a damn treadmill?!

TF Cornerstone has the nerve to charge us a mandatory $100 a month for amenities. After re-signing our 2 year lease, they actually charged us $30 to touch up our walls with paint. We are talking about a 10 minute job. Our lease says that they will clean the windows once a year. 3 years later they told us we have to hire a guy ourselves. The windows, thanks to balconies above us, are covered in dirt. We have been through 2 microwaves already. The dishwasher is junk. Our cheap floors are already destroyed 3 years after the building opened. All for $4,000 a month! Complete money grubbing scumbags. Avoid at all costs. We are looking at homes in NJ. The mortgage for a huge, nice home in a great town with a train and good school will run us about $2,400 a month. Or I can put my kid in pre-school at NY Kids Club for $12,000! This city is on the verge of a mass exodus. A really crappy home that has not been updated since it was built in 1950 in Middle Village Queens with an hour commute on a bus to Manhattan at rush hour will cost you $800,000. Unless you are Oscar the grouch, you will need to renovate it completely!

All these buildings are equally crappy. I found the whole first floor of a rowhouse plus the backyard for $1900. The house is old but I have a backyard in LIC. BBQs all summer. I would never even consider living in one of those crappy buildings. They’re poorly built and managed terribly. Not a single person I know who has lived in one has had a good experience.
