Star Tower, 27-17 42nd Road

Between 27th Street & East 182nd Street

Description of Star Tower

Star Tower is a 25-story, 184-unit luxury condominium centrally located in the Court Square neighborhood of Long Island City, a block away from the Queens Plaza and Queensboro Plaza stations (E/M/N/R/W/7 trains) that offer one-stop access to Midtown. The curved-glass high-rise is an exercise in crisp modern minimalism that follows the “form follows function” adage with refined grace. An all-glass façade creates wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows in every unit, all of which face south and overlook the skylines of Long Island City, Brooklyn, and Manhattan. Tall ceilings (up to 11 feet) further enhance a sense of airy loftiness.


Units feature up-to-11-foot ceilings, washer/dryer hookups, central A/C, eight-foot-tall interior doors, and high-speed FiOS internet. Open-plan kitchens come with quartz countertops and islands, Kohler fixtures, Fisher Paykel refrigerators, and BOSCH stove ranges, microwaves, and dishwashers. Bathrooms are decked out with Italian limestone tile, Italian Scarabeo sinks, and Kohler Oblo fixtures.


Star-shaped chandeliers within the tall-ceiled lobby harken to the name of the building, which comes from the former offices of the Long Island Star Newspaper that once stood at the site. Other building amenities include an automated garage, a fitness center, an adjacent courtyard garden with grilling stations and a playground, a top-floor billiards lounge, and an adjacent sundeck with skyline views.


The street ambiance on the surrounding blocks is that of a quiet residential neighborhood, even though the building is surrounded with bustling locales with green space, shopping and dining on all sides - Queens Plaza South a block to the north, Jackson Avenue a block east, and the Court Square and Rafferty Triangle civic hub three blocks to the south. The nearby Queensboro Bridge allows for a direct commute by car, bicycle, or on foot, further facilitated by Star Tower’s automated garage and bike room.
