There is a new condo coming around the corner in LIC, East of East. Located fairly East on Jackson Avenue and 47th Road, the location splits the difference between Hunters Point and Court Square. The thing that sets East of East apart is that it will be a boutique condo with far larger layouts than are the norm these days. Of the 13 units, 10 are half floor, 2 bedroom lofts, 1300sf and 1100sf on each floor. To add to the loft cache' you will enter your apartment through your private keyed elevator. Other highlights include Bosch and LG appliances in the kitchen, 3/4 inch thick white oak floors (on top of 3/4 plywood and moisture barrier), 9' ceiling height, private terraces as well as common roof deck and barbecue area. Most of the apartments have a pretty nice sight line with downtown and midtown Manhattan views. The building has a 15 year tax abatement and FHA approval is expected. The 2 bedrooms are expected to start around $730,000 (1 beds from $525,00) and the current guess is that the AG should approve the schedule A offering within 30 days.
As for the exterior, the idea was to fit in with local industrial and artistic roots. The corrugated steel wrap, is a much better effort than L Haus's take on fitting in with the community by opting for odd green siding. And talk about hot renderings! I think the female ghost in the bathroom shot is feeling a chill!
More action on Jackson coming soon. Stay tuned...
