Five months after its June 1 launch, TF Cornerstone’s 4545 Center Boulevard is now more than 80 percent leased.

The remaining rentals at the 41-story building on Long Island City’s waterfront, start at $2,750 per month with one month of free rent for new leases in November.
The building encompasses more amenity space than any other Long Island City property and its one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments have hardwood floors, gourmet kitchens and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide views overlooking East River, Gantry State Park and the Manhattan skyline.
“Leasing 80 percent of the units in a very short window of time reflects the growing popularity of Long Island City waterfront properties. In fact, we saw about a 60 percent jump in leasing activity since August,” said Sofia Estevez, executive vice president of TF Cornerstone Inc.
“The area is setting a new standard for urban living and showing how a community can successfully blend a family atmosphere with the luxury and convenience of city life, which includes new schools, cultural attractions, diverse restaurants, and panoramic Manhattan skyline views.”
