● KORA DEVELOPERS
Court Square condo makes a big splash
A new collection of luxury condominiums in the Court Square section of Long Island City are now available for purchase at The Decker.
The boutique property, which sits on the corner of 21st Street and 44th Drive, offers 22 one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from $685,000 to $1.525 million. The project is slated for completion in September 2017.
Modern Spaces was retained by Kora Developers as the exclusive leasing and marketing agent for the eight-story project, located at 21-10 44th Drive.
The building is being designed by Brooklyn-based Zproekt to pay homage to Long Island City’s maritime history. The name “Decker” is a tribute to the former Newtown Creek Towing Company and its tugboat, the W.O. Decker.
“We’re seeing a shift in the area best known for the Citigroup Building. Several new residential projects, including The Decker, are offsetting the commercial office buildings that originally brought people into Court Square,” said Eric Benaim, CEO of Modern Spaces.
“The Decker is providing in-demand residential inventory for the area, which we expect will only increase in popularity. The combination of restaurants, museums and parks, coupled with the easy access to the rest of Queens and Manhattan, makes this neighborhood truly unmatched when it comes to convenience.”
The Decker has a classic, red-brick exterior and contemporary interior units with Daikin HVAC, custom Miton Cucine Italian kitchen cabinetry and Bosch appliances.
Amenities include a resident’s lounge, landscaped outdoor space with barbeque grills, recreation room and fitness center.
