My article on East Coast 3, the condo coming soon, right on the LIC waterfront hit curbed.com late this afternoon. The article was termed "Will East Coast 3 Make Or Break LIC". Well, I'd say neither. It will, no doubt, set the high water mark for LIC. Rockrose is a highly respected developer of high quality product, and there is no doubt that the location for EC3 has no equal in the area. 5SL, by Toll Brothers, is a quality building, and well situated, but there is no beating EC3's location. EC3 is on the water and the wide open views will never be obstructed (in our lifetimes at least) and it sits on a park and the river. And those views? Phenomenal. From The Financial District to the UES, not shabby at all. The kicker? I failed to mention that the prices I have been quoted do not include generous outdoor space included with most units. Manhattan Prices? Find me a Manhattan apartment with such views and such luxury, 3 minutes from Grand Central, for an average of $1150/ft. They don't exist. Will this building make or break LIC? Please, this building will make LIC for those that need a break from Manhattan.
