Rose Associates s announced that a preview leasing period is underway at The Maximilian, a newly constructed, full-service luxury residential building at 5-11 47th Avenue in Long Island City.
“The Maximilian offers personalized service in a boutique, low-rise building that has been designed with the area’s industrial past in mind,” said Amy Rose, co-president of Rose Associates, which is handling leasing and management of The Maximilian. “This is an opportunity to live in a modern, amenity-rich property that’s positioned in one of the city’s most exciting residential neighborhoods.”
The Maximilian is comprised of 188 apartments in studio, one-, and two-bedroom layouts. Situated in the heart of Long Island City, the property is convenient to Manhattan and Brooklyn and just a short walk from the number 7 and G subway lines. Gantry State Park and its 12 acres of undisturbed waterfront property provide a nearby option for outdoor activities.
Residents will also enjoy access to Vernon Boulevard and the neighborhood’s popular restaurants and cafes — Cranky’s, Sweetleaf, Corner Bistro and Alobar among them. The 12-story building was designed by SLCE Architects and developed by O’Connor Capital Partners and Rose Associates.
“At O’Connor, we saw the potential of the emerging Long Island City residential market nearly ten years ago, which is when we began assembling the site,” said Bill O’Connor, managing partner of O’Connor Capital Partners. “We are very pleased with our joint venture with Rose Associates and we look forward to additional investments in the submarket.”
Residences at The Maximilian feature polished hard wood floors, modern kitchens with GE stainless steel appliances, and Italian made cabinetry. Numerous residences have terraces, many with views of the East River and the Manhattan skyline. Many floor plans in the building are one-of-a-kind, which is another feature that distinguishes this warm industrial property from its high-rise neighbors. Each apartment is equipped with a frontloading washer and dryer.
The attended lobby features a variety of materials and textures including a Macassar ebony and black quartz concierge desk, comfortable seating and niche walls. Maximilian residents will have access to the professional concierge service Leave it to Max. Additional amenities include a landscaped roof deck with barbecue areas and an outdoor theater, an indoor lounge with leather club furniture and a billiards room, a fitness center, and bicycle storage.
Rents at The Maximilian start at $1,975 for studios, $2,530 for one-bedrooms, and $3,490 for two bedrooms.
