Verona Condominium, Astoria’s Newest Luxury Development, is 50 Percent Sold

Dec. 3, 2017 By Staff Report

Less than six months after luxury condos went on sale at a new Astoria building, the exclusive sales team of Gavrilov-Grosso at The Corcoran Group has sold more than 50 percent of the units.

The seven-story building, called the “Verona Condominium,” is located at 21-17 31st Ave. and consists of 56 luxury units from studios to two bedrooms, featuring glass balconies, Italian porcelain tile bathrooms, in-unit washers/dryers, large living spaces and gourmet kitchen finishes.

One bedrooms, which account for most of the remaining units available, start at $695,000. All purchasers are anticipated to move in at the beginning of spring 2018.

The project was designed by Meltzer/Costa & Associates and developed by Park Construction Corp.

“We’ve seen a great response from buyers, many of whom are new to this market,” said Aleksey Gravilov and Joseph Grosso.

“The main draw is the location of the building being so close to the N, W subway lines, a new ferry and the Q69 bus. It is all about convenience.”
