Galerie, located at 22-18 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, has launched sales for its 182 units. Apartments range in size from 409 square feet to 1,592 square feet, with pricing starting at $595,000 for studios and $765,000 for one-bedrooms.
Developed by Adam America Real Estate Development and Vanke US, Galerie stands in the heart of Long Island City’s growing Art District. The Museum of Modern Art PS1 is located directly across the street from Galerie. The artsy development also houses its own permanent collection of artwork, a sculpture garden and gallery.
The residences were designed by ODA Architecture to reflect the neighborhood’s rich artistic history. Units feature spacious, modern open-floor layouts that allow for a wealth of natural light and offer views of the surrounding neighborhood. Some residences also include private terraces. Galerie makes use of three different window types that gives its facade a distinctive look.
Kitchens include a dining island with Caesarstone countertops and a waterfall, as well as precision woodwork throughout. Master baths have dual sinks and stone countertops, as well as two medicine cabinets with integrated lighting.
Some of Galerie’s notable amenities include an indoor pool, a children’s playroom, bike storage, a landscaped rooftop deck, and a party room with a kitchenette.
Long Island City offers residents easy access to mass transit, and is a few minutes from both Midtown East and West in Manhattan. Both area airports — La Guardia and JFK — are a short Uber ride away, and are also accessible via public transit. The neighborhood has been undergoing a massive transformation over the last few years as more and more new construction developments reshape LIC’s skyline. The former mostly industrial neighborhood is fast becoming one of Queens’ most popular residential areas.
Galerie is scheduled for completion in summer 2019.
