(L) The Murano, (R) Murano Glass (forgive the pun)
(L) 10-17 Jackson, and (R) The Solarium
The are three condos looming on the LIC scene that seem to be in a state of limbo, at least from a sales perspective. 10-17 Jackson, The Murano (next to Hunters Point on Borden), and Solarium (2 doors east of 5SL on 48th Avenue) have all made substantial progress since our last look. Still, there isn't but a peep about when they will actually come to market. All the developers seem to have the same idea- wait out the market. (EDITORS NOTE: Hearing from Rick Rosa representing The Solarium, the developers have been tweaking the offering plan and not delaying the project. They are anxious to get started marketing as soon as the plan if ok'd by the AG).
All three have an appeal- 10-17 with it's Chrysler-esque design and 10' ceilings, the green-ness of Solarium, and the unusual light clock feature thingy on The Murano.
Highlight for today's trip: a few reflective glass panels at Murano, the topping of 10-17, and The Solarium.
