5-19 Borden Avenue, Long Island City

Glass. Water. Light. Color. The Murano, named after the famous Italian island known for its spectacular colored glass, combines these four elements into a fluid design, making it a standout in an area of New York known for its creative edge: Long Island City. A computerized system lights the lobby walls and exterior of Murano in a different hue every hour on the hour, transforming the all-glass building into a glowing, sculptural wonder. Surrounded by a serene “urban lake”, the Murano is a beacon of light, heralding new life, limitless possibility, and inspired living to those who like to color outside the lines.
A “green” building, the Murano utilizes green finishes throughout and eco-friendly building materials wherever possible. Think visionary design meets eco-savvy living. Green has never looked so good. The apartments provide a spacious setting to enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding cityscape. Completely modern in design, and constructed with a nod toward environmental living, each unit features state-of-the-art finishes, sleek oak pearl hardwood flooring, and expansive floor-to-ceiling glass walls that welcome exceptional light. With its video intercom system and low-emissivity glass windows, the Murano balances the best of the high-tech world with cutting-edge design. Select residences feature balcony/terrace space, offering premier exclusivity and plenty of privacy for taking in the dramatic city horizon. Perfectly set up for both the novice chef and the accomplished gourmand, Murano kitchens are outfitted with Energy Star Miele, Sharp and Italian design SMEG appliances, seamlessly integrated into a modern backdrop of white pine cabinetry and Corian tiles and countertops. Murano bathrooms are cast in a subdued color palette of gray, light wood, and crisp white, featuring energy efficient Darius Design fixtures and custom-mounted teak cabinetry. Pebbled tiling, Himarchal stone wall, and a deep, freestanding tub round out the luxurious offering. The building amenities include a full time concierge, a fitness center, an on site garage, bike storage, a lounge, a nursery, a landscaped garden area with grills and benches, and a common terrace that spans the width of the building. Long Island City as a neighborhood is poised to be the Next Big Thing. Populated with artists, visionaries, entrepreneurs, and innovative small businesses, it represents a forward-thinking approach to life. Dotted with cafes, quirky boutiques, restaurants – and home to New York City’s much-beloved Fresh Direct – it is conveniently located near Brooklyn’s hottest hoods and just a hop, skip, and a jump to Manhattan.
