Units in a seven-story luxury condo in Astoria’s Kaufman Arts District have just gone on the market.
The development, which is still under construction, is located at 34-32 35th St and is being dubbed “The Marx.”
The building is the first luxury condo in Astoria’s Kaufman Arts District, according to brokerage firm Modern Spaces.
The Kaufman Arts District, designated last year, sits between 31st Street and Steinway Street, and 37th Avenue and 34th Avenue. It encompasses Kaufman Astoria Studios, the Museum of the Moving Image and the Queens Council on the Arts.
Due to the studios, the area has a rich history in TV and film. As a tribute to this history, “The Marx” is named for the Marx Brothers, the renowned Depression-era comedians who shot two of their movies here.
The Marx offers 33 homes in a mix of one- and two-bedrooms, with prices running from the $600,000’s to roughly $1 million, according to Modern Spaces.
Amenities include a rooftop terrace with a grill, a fitness room and a lounge. Condo units have luxury features from private terraces to heated towel bars in the bathroom.
Construction plans filed at the Department of Buildings show 18 accessory parking spaces.
“We’re delighted to offer the homes at The Marx to our regular constituents and newcomers alike,” said Hal Rosenbluth, CEO of Kaufman Astoria Studios, which developed The Marx in a joint venture with Procida Companies. “We’re thrilled to bring even more life to this thriving and historic neighborhood.”
