Prices for high-end rentals in Long Island City have been steadily increasing in recent years, but here’s a chance to live in one of these new, luxury buildings for less. ONE LIC, located at 42-10 27th Street in Court Square, just launched a middle-income housing lottery for New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the median income. The units range from $2,241/month studios to $3,283/month three-bedrooms. Normally, units in this building rent from about $3,000 to $5,500. The apartments all have luxe finishes, and the amenities include a barbecue deck with skyline views and a 20th-floor fitness center.

Here’s your first look at an upcoming 18-story, 110-unit residential building called One Queens Plaza in Long Island City. Situated at 42-10 27th Street, the tower is being developed by the ever-growing-in-ambition New York Lions Group, also the developer of the two nearby Court Square towers that we revealed earlier today.

Late last month, The Real Deal broke news of the development’s initial construction permit filing, which calls for a 90,000-square-foot tower that will include 8,645 square feet of commercial space, as well as a 55-car parking garage. It will be just a single stop from Midtown along the N and R lines–meaning residents can be whisked from their doorsteps to Bloomingdales in roughly five minutes.
