A new condo building in Long Island City is offering buyers a rare amenity in New York: private outdoor space. Located at 22-43 Jackson Avenue, The Prime contains 71 units, all of which boast balconies. And perhaps even more exciting for some, a Trader Joe’s grocery store will open on the building’s ground floor this year. Sales launched earlier this month at the building, developed by Circle F Capital and designed by Andres Escobar’s Lemay+Escobar Architecture, with residences starting at $700,000.

Unlike some of its towering neighbors, The Prime is mid-size at 11 stories, which allows each residence to have private outdoor space, while not sacrificing interior square footage. Lemay + Escobar Architecture designed the building as a peaceful escape from the busy surrounding area, with nature-inspired touches like a green wall and water screen in the double-height lobby.

The residences, which range from one- to three-bedrooms, feature natural tones and textures, with floor-to-ceiling windows, white oak floors, and high-end finishes throughout.

“At The Prime, we wanted to create the sense of an oasis within the neighborhood, a peaceful and soothing living experience within an area that is becoming more lively and denser,” Escobar said. “The green wall and the water screen cater the idea of nature in the lobby and introduce a Zen-like feeling that permeates the space from the entrance to the amenities and to the apartments.”

Amenities include a full-time attended lobby, live-in super, a fitness center, residence lounge, dog run, and a furnished outdoor terrace with cabanas, tanning beds, reflecting water feature, and grill stations. The children’s playroom is decked out in wood paneling and tree-printed wallpaper with creative nooks and built-in benches.

Another definite perk, Trader Joe’s is expected to open in the building by the end of the summer, according to LIC Post. The popular grocery store chain will take up 17,000 square feet on the ground floor, the store’s second Queens location.

Nest Seekers International’s Ryan Serhant and Brian Chan are leading the sales at The Prime. The building is already at 40 percent capacity, with none of the units sold investment units or bought by international investors, according to Nest Seekers. Current condo availability ranges from a $700,000 one-bedroom, one-bath unit to a $1.75 million three-bedroom, three-bath home.

The Prime is located in the Court Square neighborhood of Long Island City, conveniently within a block to the 7 and G subway trains and just a little further to the E and M. The building sits across from MoMA PS1 and a number of restaurants and cafes, with the newly opened Hunter’s Point South Park and Queens Public Library at Hunters Point nearby.
