While community leaders and political officials are working to revitalize Jamaica and hope to hasten an impending real estate boom, a new luxury rental building is opening on the edge of the neighborhood ahead of the explosion.
TCX Development, which is working on numerous projects in Jamaica on the idea that the area is overdue for a transformation, hopes to complete its building at 190-11 Hillside Ave. this month and begin marketing in a few weeks. The Courier got a quick peek inside what owners of the building are calling “Manhattan-style apartments in Jamaica.”
The seven-story apartment building has 21 one-bedroom units and one three-bedroom penthouse.
The units all have modern finishes and luxury touches, such as floor-to-ceiling windows, granite countertops and hardwood floors. Each apartment has a balcony and the penthouse features a wrap-around balcony. One of the penthouse suite’s three bedrooms has a skylight.
Additionally, the rooms include video intercoms and remote-controlled air conditioning and heating, as well as new appliances.
The one-bedroom apartments offer about 680 square feet of space and will retail for about $1,650 per month. The developers aren’t ready to release the price of the penthouse.
The building is also offering 11 parking spots.
