With new cases of COVID-19 steadily declining across New York City, renters are returning to the market in search of additional living space and easy access to the outdoors. The Elm West is a brand new luxury apartment residence located in the diverse and growing neighborhood of Elmhurst, Queens. The contemporary, six-story building was completed in June and a quarter of its residents will begin moving in this weekend.
Pi Capital Partners, one of the largest private NYC real estate families, is behind the 142-apartment residence with an onsite parking garage and childcare facilities. The New York-based company has seen rent collection rates bounce back to 100 percent and they have even hired new employees to keep up with the increased demand.
Prospective tenants who couldn’t view apartments during the lockdown period, recent college graduates and young professionals are flocking back to New York City, snapping up apartments that offer spacious layouts, high-end finishes and private outdoor space.
The Elm West touts studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments from $1,700 per month. These bright and airy residences are characterized by expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, wide-plank hardwood flooring, and terraces and balconies that provide panoramic views of the surrounding neighborhood and Manhattan skyline (as per plan).
The gourmet kitchens are equipped with full-size stainless steel appliances, white granite countertops, tile backsplashes and timeless, wood-look cabinetry, while the spa-inspired bathrooms feature designer bathtub and shower combinations, granite-topped vanities and large-format ceramic tile flooring.
Pi Capital Partners has gone to great lengths to ensure the health safety of The Elm West residents. Hand sanitizing stations have been installed in every elevator, signs alerting residents and visitors to face mask and social distancing mandates have been placed around the attended lobby, and the fitness center now features spaced-out equipment, plexiglass dividers and complimentary disinfectant wipes.
The Elm West is located at the corner of Broadway and Queens Boulevard in the heart of Elmhurst. Residents will be just steps away from Grand Avenue-Newtown Station, offering connections to the MTA subway M or R trains. MTA bus routes such as the Q53, Q58, Q59 and Q60 are also nearby. Plus, it’s easy to escape upstate or to The Hamptons on weekends with quick access to interstate highways.
Queens Place Mall is a three-minute walk from the doorstep of The Elm West, featuring a Target, Best Buy, DSW and Macy’s Furniture Gallery, in addition to restaurants like Red Lobster and Outback Steakhouse.
There are three sizable parks close by, including Flushing-Corona Park, Forest Park and Alley Pond Park. The site of the 1964 New York World’s Fair, the 897-acre Flushing-Corona Park boasts jogging and biking trails, playgrounds, sports fields, boat rentals, a model airplane field, golf center, botanical gardens, museums, a performing arts venue and much more. It’s also home to the Queens Zoo, USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center and Citi Field.
