The most expensive condo in Queens just raised its asking price. The penthouse at 46-30 Center Boulevard in Long Island City made news last year when its price actually dropped from $4.25 million to $3.65 million during the so-called Amazon effect, a time when condo prices soared in the neighborhood as the tech giant prepared to move there. Sticking with its outlier trend, the penthouse is now listed for $3.988 million, despite Amazon pulling out of its planned headquarters in LIC earlier this year.
In 2015, a local taxi mogul listed the penthouse at $5.4 million. Prior to that, the apartment was purchased in 2009 for $2.7 million. As part of a pilot tax abatement program, taxes for the property are just $33 per month.
Located just north of the Pepsi-Cola sign, the apartment, located in the building “The View,” measures 2,260 square feet and contains three bedrooms and four bedrooms. The corner unit boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing for open views of the East River and Manhattan.
The open floor plan links the spacious living room with the kitchen, which includes a large granite center island and Viking and SubZero appliances. A small dining area sits in its nook next to the kitchen and the private outdoor terrace.
The large master suite can be found on the second floor. Perks include an en-suite bath, walk-in closets, and city views from every angle. Second and third bedrooms on this level also feature en-suite bathrooms, with the former enjoying its own balcony.
Amenities include in-unit washer/dryer, central air, and membership to the East Coast Club, a fitness center across the street. The club includes a heated pool, roof deck, spa, and screening room.
