Star Tower, a luxury condominium located at 27-17 42nd Road, is selling quickly, real estate broker Aggie Cheng, who represents Star Tower, said to The Court Square Blog.
“We are ecstatic over the enthusiasm and interest we’ve seen in Star Tower,” Cheng said. “We love that we are contributing to a vibrant, fast-growing Long Island City community.”
Closings are expected to begin in fall 2019.
“This sleek, contemporary, 21st Century tower has elements that hark back to Long Island City’s industrial roots,” Cheng said. “The canopy on the entrance and the bays made of stone and metal were inspired by the old loading bays of an earlier day.”
Its amenities include an attended lobby, rooftop lounge and garden with sweeping views of Queens and Manhattan, automatic car parking system, a media and fitness room and outdoor playground. The building also features a 421-a 15-year tax abatement, with low common charges at less than 0.80 cents per square feet including gas.
“Star Tower provides a wealth of the finest building-wide amenities across both the entire penthouse and the entire second floor for a truly luxurious condo lifestyle,” Cheng said. “Spectacular views of Manhattan, unmatched convenient location and a 15 year tax abatement make this condo offering special.”
The building is within a five-block radius of subway stations at Queensboro Plaza, Court Square and Queens Plaza, each with a train line that is only one stop from Manhattan.
“LIC has become the “go to” home of trend-setting new parks, restaurants, bars, hotels, groceries and shops, a delightful destination all its own,” Cheng said. “And Star Tower is steps from seven subway lines just one stop to midtown Manhattan or trendy Williamsburg and enjoys easy access to close-by airports, highways and beaches.”
