A new development on 31st Street near Astoria Boulevard is now accepting residents, with rents for one-bedrooms running roughly $2,300 a month.
The seven-story building, located at 25-34 31st Street, has 16 apartments up for grabs, according to realtor Luca DiCiero of NY Space Finders.
Of the 16 units, 15 are one-bedroom apartments. Each unit is roughly 600 square feet, according to building developer and owner Michael Prete. Each unit also includes a front and rear terrace. Rent is set at $2,350 for each unit.
The top floor is a penthouse with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and three terraces. The penthouse is roughly 1,100 square feet. Rent is set at $5,000, according to DiCiero.
Each floor has its own laundry room, as well as a space to throw out trash.
“Residents won’t have to carry their garbage downstairs,” Prete said.
Each apartment will include radiant floor heating, as well as insulation to muffle train noise, according to DiCiero.
“Mike [Prete] did a great job to make these state of the art,” he said.
DiCiero is expecting residents to be able to move in on Sept. 1.
NY Space Finders began accepting applications this week, but all the units remain up for grabs, DiCiero said. Those interested in applying can visit www.nyspacefinders.com or email them at [email protected].
Also up for rent is the ground floor retail space. The space offers 2,200 square feet, as well as an outdoor garden and patio that provides an additional 1,300 square feet, according to Prete.
