46-30 Center Boulevard, The View at East Coast, Long Island City condos, Basil Messados

In March, we learned that self-made Greek taxi mogul Basil Messados was looking to set the record for most expensive single-family home ever sold in Queens, listing his Long Island City penthouse at 46-30 Center Boulevard for $5.4 million. Now, the Daily News reports that exactly six months later, Messados has taken the title, accepting a cash offer for an undisclosed amount. He purchased the three-bedroom apartment in 2009 for just $2.5 million, using it as a crash pad for Greek visitors who got to enjoy the home’s expansive wraparound terrace, exquisite dark wood floors, and cathedral ceilings.
