Leasing has begun for apartments in the luxury residential rental tower QLIC in Long Island City, which is stock-pilled with amenities, including everything from a rooftop pool with cabanas and views of the Manhattan skyline to a dog grooming station.
QLIC, owned by World Wide Group, has more than 28,000 square feet of amenities. There is a gym, indoor parking, a bike room, an open-air theater and barbecue, a landscaped courtyard with a fire pit, and a game room with billiards and ping pong tables.
There are 421 apartments in the 21-story building, but prospective renters should hurry, because there have been more than 1,500 inquiries for units in the building at Queens Plaza North and 24th Street, according to Dave Maundrell, president of aptsandlofts.com, which is marketing the building.
“QLIC is one of the most highly anticipated developments to join the Long Island City market,” Maundrell said. “With an impressive amenity package, QLIC is expected to reset the bar in the boroughs.”
The Perkins Eastman-designed building will offer a mix of apartments with varying sizes. Studios start at $2,026 per month, one-bedrooms from $2,285, two-bedrooms from $3,595 and three-bedrooms from $4,592.
QLIC topped out in September last year. Tenants can expect to move into QLIC in July.
