While everyone loves sprawling, multi-million dollar apartments, sometimes a smaller pad is in order. These three studios offer less space, but no less style, than their more expensive counterparts. Perfect for young professionals or beleaguered commuters looking for a break, these three flats are places to be proud of, without breaking the bank.
With gleaming hardwood, a wall of windows, river views, and a location in one of New York’s most happening neighborhoods, this studio at Williamsburg’s 2 Northside Piers is one of the most desirable small spaces in Brooklyn. The unit itself measures 603 square feet, with a layout that promotes distinct sleeping and living areas. Off the alcove lies a thoroughly up-to-date master bath, flanked by a pair of spacious closets. The kitchen, which opens to the living area with a convenient counter for dining, features top-of-the-line appliances like a Bosch dishwasher and Sub-Zero fridge.
Following up our status report earlier this week on One Murray Park, we thought we’d share this additional shot of one portion of the rooftop terrace atop Long Island City’s newest luxury condominium building. In the background are the waterfront towers of LIC, as well as the Midtown Manhattan skyline, with the United Nations and the Chrysler Building being the most prominent. Residents will even be able to see the new World Trade Center taking shape — you can spot 1 World Trade Center, what will be the tallest building in the country, in the distance. The Chrysler Building and 1 World Trade Center in the same view? A unique perspective from a unique building. Click here for more on One Murray Park.
Closings have just kicked off at One Murray Park, the new 45-unit luxury condominium development in Long Island City along a recently renovated playground and park. The building, one of the few new developments in this rapidly transforming neighborhood, is now 64% in contract, according to CORE’s Doron Zwickel, who is handling sales and marketing for the building. Featuring amenities such as a doorman, fitness center, residents’ library, roof deck and indoor parking, One Murray Park is also entering the homestretch of construction, which makes it the perfect time to check in on the building following our earlier sneak peek inside.
Though summer is usually regarded as the slow season for selling real estate, CORE’s new Long Island City development, One Murray Park, is proving that’s not always the case. The 45-unit building, which launched right at the start of the season, has just crossed the 50% in contract milestone–hitting 53%, to be exact. It’s no surprise why the building is enjoying strong sales success: One Murray Park, located at 11-25 45th Avenue, is the first new condominium development in the growing Long Island City neighborhood in some time, and the luxury amenities include a doorman, gym, indoor parking, roof deck, and library lounge. Being located right on the recently renovated Murray Park is a major attraction, as well. Current listings in the building range from a $385,000 studio to a 2-bed/2-bath unit priced at $900,000.

At One Murray Park, CORE’s new condominium development in Long Island City that we revealed earlier this spring, sales have been in a “soft launch” phase, with showings by appointment only. But now it’s time to share more info about the first new collection of residences on the neighborhood’s newly renovated Murray Playground. Even in the soft launch phase, demand for the building has been incredible, with sales prices for the 45 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments matching the Long Island City market highs of 2006 and 2007, and in many cases, rising even higher. Now a number of listings have gone live on the CORE website, and we’re thrilled to share the first photos inside a model apartment.
Developed by Shuster Management and designed by architecture firm Fogarty Finger, One Murray Park, located at 11-25 45th Avenue in the rapidly transforming neighborhood, is the first new condominium development to hit the Long Island City market in over a year. Amenities include a doorman, gym, indoor parking, residents’ library, pet washing area and common roof deck. The building is being marketed by CORE’s Doron Zwickel, and construction is nearly complete. We’ll have a sales update on the project soon, but for now, enjoy a couple more sneak peeks inside the building below.
Long Island City’s Murray Park is an under-the-radar gem in a neighborhood that has exploded with growth in recent years. A multimillion-dollar renovation by the city has infused the park with a new ball field and state-of-the-art playground equipment, and we’ve been keeping an eye on the park’s improvements while watching the ascent of One Murray Park, the first condominium located along the green space. We’ll have news about this exciting new LIC development next week, but for now, check out the One Murray Park Facebook page for more photos and updates.
Here’s a first look at One Murray Park at 11-25 45th Avenue, the first condominium on Long Island City’s Murray Park (also known as Murray Playground), and the first new condominium to hit the LIC market in more than a year. CORE’s Doron Zwickel will bring the 45-unit building — consisting of 10 studio, 25 one-bedroom and 10 two-bedroom apartments — to the market next month. Designed by SoHo-based architecture firm Fogarty Finger and built by a team consisting of veteran Long Island City developer Shuster Development & Management and TerraMax Development, One Murray Park will be an anchor on tree-lined 45th Avenue, offering residents a recently renovated park right at their doorstep. Construction is nearly complete, and closings are slated to take place in late summer. Studios will be priced from the low $300Ks, one-bedrooms from the mid-$400Ks, and two-bedrooms from the low $700Ks.
