While real estate prices are expected to rise in Long Island City and the surrounding area due to Amazon’s impending move to the neighborhood, one listing has lowered its price. The most expensive apartment in the borough of Queens, located at 46-30 Center Boulevard, is on the market again, the New York Post reported. The penthouse, which sits just north of the Pepsi-Cola sign, is asking $3.65 million, less than the $4.25 million it was listed for in 2017. Soon after Amazon announced their move to Long Island City, interest in the neighborhood surged. As 6sqft previously reported, searches for residential apartments in the neighborhood are up 281 percent compared to the daily averages prior to the Amazon news.
Penthouse 5 at The View measures 2,260 square feet and contains three bedrooms and four baths. The corner apartment features floor-to-ceiling windows, which boast views of the East River and Manhattan.
The first floor is “loft-like” and includes the chef’s eat-in kitchen and separate dining area. Hardwood floors and 14-foot high ceilings can be found throughout.
The spacious master bedroom overlooks an unobstructed United Nations and Midtown. Its windowed master bath features a large soaking tub, separate glass shower, and a double vanity.
In addition to its waterfront views, amenities at the building include a 24-hour doorman, live-in manager, a gym with an indoor pool and spa, party room, and a roof top with barbecuing spots.
