You might know Kirsten Jordan from Bravo’s Milion Dollar Listing, but we celebrate her for listing the most expensive condo in all of Queens.
Although at a slightly lower price point than ultra-luxe Manhattan properties, this stunning $4.995M penthouse is breaking records for Queens, a borough that is just now starting to emerge as a true luxury market.
The sky-high mansion sits atop the historic Arris Lofts in Long Island City, with sweeping Manhattan skyline views, soaring 13-foot-tall ceilings, and nearly as much outdoor space as indoor living space.
One of the premier residential loft buildings in Long Island City, the Arris Lofts were designed by award-winning architect Costa Kondylis.
Upon entering, residents are greeted by a 24-hour doorman and concierge. A 4,700 square foot lobby with a fireplace overlooks a 6,000 square foot Japanese-inspired landscaped courtyard.
The Arris Lofts offers its residents top-notch amenities including a 9,000 square foot fitness center with world-class gym equipment, lap pool, sauna, and massage room.
A 3,300 square foot Resident's Lounge features a recreation room, children's playroom, billiards room, and catering kitchen. Amenities also include an additional shared landscaped roof deck allowing residents to take in captivating skyline views and sunsets every evening. Arris Lofts is pet-friendly with access to private and municipal parking garages.
Watch the sun go down behind the Manhattan skyline from one of your two private outdoor spaces - a lower terrace extending from the kitchen and dining area (333 sq ft) and an expansive private roof terrace (2,307 sq ft). A full irrigation system installed throughout the planters lets you fulfill your green thumb vision with ease.
The owner combined two top-floors units to create this one massive dream home that signifies the new era of luxury living in Queens.
This sprawling home also has a fun celebrity history, having been featured on several TV shows including Aziz Ansari’s “Master of None” as the apartment of Claire Danes and Noah Emmerich, in “Elementary” starring Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller, and also in the pilot episode of “Almost Family,” a remake of the hit Australian television show, “Sisters.”
With 13-foot ceilings and 10-foot encased windows equipped with electric blinds, this residence is masterfully designed to maximize views - enjoy looking out onto the Empire State Building from the open kitchen and dining room.
This one-of-a-kind home boasts 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a bonus room that can be used as an office, exercise room, or nursery, a walk-in closet, laundry room, and wrap-around staircase leading to the rooftop. Deeded storage and a shed on your private rooftop are included.
The outside of this apartment is just as well-maintained as its interior - approach your prize home and enjoy the building's many amenities via the building's fully renovated elevator banks and hallways.
Situated in Court Square, a prime location within Long Island City, means you are one block away from the E, M, G, and 7 trains - only one subway stop from Manhattan. Also nearby are the N, R, F trains, the LIRR and the East River ferry at the LIC waterfront.
A short distance to Murray Playground, MOMA PS1, the Sculpture Garden, and a new Trader Joe's. Enjoy the vibrant local area with a variety of restaurants, cafes and nightlife, and all that the Long Island City waterfront has to offer.
