When it comes to in-house amenities, condo residents have grown discerning. Indoor pools, children’s playrooms, and spaces to work from home are among the facilities on people’s wish lists. The Modern Spaces portfolio offers a plethora of condominiums, with amenities to suit all residents. Here are three buildings in Long Island City that provide far more than just luxury apartments.
“Modern luxury from the front door” is promised at Skyline Tower in LIC, thanks to its breathtaking marble lobby staffed by the round-the-clock concierge and doorman. You can shoot billiards in the residential lounge or cook for friends in the demonstration kitchen—although perhaps the tour de force here is the 75-foot indoor pool, embellished with a cedar plank-lined sauna and steam room. Everyone is considered at Skyline Tower, though, including the kids; the playroom has hot air balloons drifting across a painted sky, antique-style pedal cars, and suspended soft seats for enchanting story times.
The Zipper Building
In its former incarnation as—wait a minute, you guessed it—a zipper factory, The Zipper Building embodied the early 20th-century industrial aesthetic of Hunters Point in LIC. Now, its 41 studio to four-bedroom condominiums retain the best of that aesthetic, complemented by contemporary vision, modern craftsmanship, and attention to state-of-the-art comforts and efficiencies. The amenities, which include the fitness center with an adjoining yoga terrace, the expansive residents lounge, and the bright and colorful children’s playroom, reflect The Zipper Building’s commitment to community, balancing welcoming indoor and outdoor social areas with a sense of intimacy and refinement. Parking, private storage, and doorman services round out the perks.
Coming soon to LIC’s Dutch Kills neighborhood, The Rise’s nine floors will encompass studio to three-bedroom residences with floor-to-ceiling windows and sleek, up-to-the-minute design. The Rise’s multistory rooftop terrace is the crowning glory to an amenities package that includes a community garden, an outdoor BBQ and lawn, a residents lounge, a demonstration kitchen, and a fitness center and yoga studio. Although every home will have its own washer/dryer, the building will also provide a separate laundry room for those times when one washer is not enough. And, in the interest of pet friendliness and cleanliness, The Rise will also feature dog-washing facilities.
