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.

A new luxury penthouse building is coming to Jamaica Estates, further suggesting a change in investors’ attitudes toward the emerging market around the neighborhood.

Great Neck-based TCX Development is constructing the building, which will be located at 177-30 Wexford Terrace, a block away from the F train.

The group is also behind a seven-story rental building with a penthouse, which is being constructed at nearby 190-11 Hillside Ave.

The Wexford Terrace building will feature a rooftop terrace on top of eight stories with studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments. The exterior of the building will boast black brick and white panels.

There will be 68 total apartments, a 9,500-square-foot community facility space for residents and 47 parking spaces.

Prices at the residence building will start at $1,550 per month for studios, $1,750 for one-bedroom apartments and $2,200 for two-bedrooms, according to a representative from the firm.

The top two floors will have 10 penthouse units, which will start at $2,600.

Development in Jamaica is about to pick up and bring big changes to the New York City real estate scene, according to a firm building new apartments in the area.

TCX Development, a Great Neck-based firm, is working on a seven-story, 21-unit apartment building on Hillside Avenue near 191st Street. TCX officials believe they are ahead of the wave of development they feel is coming to the neighborhood because of its zoning, extensive public transportation network and massive downtown shopping district.

“We really believe in this area. We’ve done a lot of research and we are sure that this area is due for a lot of development soon,” said Joshua Asherian of TCX Development. “The zoning is already there and the retail is already there, It’s only a matter of time.”

TCX released renderings for the project last week, as New York YIMBY revealed, and the building is expected to be completed in 2015.

The exterior of the 15,000-square-foot building will be designed with black brick and metal siding with large windows. The interior will have a modern finish with key card access. There will also be 11 enclosed parking spots.

The building will mostly be comprised of one-bedroom apartments for $1,600 a month, which Asherian said will be attractive compared to Brooklyn and Manhattan prices for comparable rooms. There will also be one three-bedroom penthouse.
