An exciting addition to Astoria, this boutique 20-unit structure resides in a lively, friendly neighborhood that you'll want to call home. And it all begins with the name.
Petra is an homage to Astoria's Greek heritage. The name 'stone' in Greek is as distinctive as the building itself. This striking building immediately commands attention with its linear concrete facade. Once inside the boldly contemporary design is reflected throughout the elegant residences.

The studio, one- and two-bedroom options are all precisely crafted using carefully considered premium materials, a blend of classic and modern. All are executed with superior design elements, including plank wood flooring and innovative triple-pane Schco windows that envelop each apartment in plenty of natural light while also reducing outside noises, providing the ultimate energy efficiency and comfort.
Kitchens are polished yet practical, ideally suited to preparing that culinary masterpiece or simply brewing up some morning java. Seamlessly integrated European-styled Frigidaire Gallery ranges with advanced induction cooktops and built-in air fryers, Blomberg refrigerators and dishwashers are ideally suited to your every need.

This is your canvas for cooking and entertaining.

Both stations have been recently upgraded and modernized.
