Queens is getting its own Flatiron Building lookalike in Long Island City. Designed by Fogarty Finger, The Nova is a 24-story mixed-use high-rise located on a triangular plot of land, giving way to a curved structure that evokes the Manhattan landmark. Slated to open in September, the luxury tower has 86 condominium units and ground-floor retail.

As CityRealty reported, prices at the Nova, which topped out last December, are expected to start at $600,000 for studios, $760,000 for one-bedrooms, and $1,150,00 for two-bedrooms. Modern Spaces is the exclusive sales and marketing agent.

Developed by SB Development Group, the building’s sleek design is due mainly to the triangular piece of land it sits on, but also in part to its white terracotta facade that scales the full height of the building. The dark, floor-to-ceiling windows on the second floor help magnify the curvature of the entire structure.

Although the building may appear narrow from the outside, its units are spacious and elegantly designed. Large windows allow abundant natural light to stream in and offer owners incredible views of the surrounding city. Open kitchens feature state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances and custom millwork.

The same level of craftsmanship is carried over into the unit’s bathrooms, which feature bright, custom pattern stonework that promotes a feeling of relaxation.

New condo projects with designs also inspired by the Flatiron Building include 10 Sullivan Street in Soho and One Clinton in Brooklyn Heights, as CityRealty notes.

The Nova’s amenities include a fitness center, lounge, children’s playroom, and library. Pet owners can utilize the building’s dog washing station. Residents will also have access to bike storage space, as well as laundry and package rooms. The lobby will be attended by a full-time doorman and concierge service.

Exterior amenities include outdoor recreation spaces on the second and 23rd floors, the latter of which has an outdoor terrace with breathtaking views of the East River and the city skyline behind it.

The property is situated near public transportation, with the M, R, E, N, Q, 7, F, and G subway lines all located within a half-mile of the building.
