Features

Star Tower exterior and unit interior Star Tower exterior and unit interior
After years of anticipation, Star Tower at 27-17 42nd Road in Long Island City lists condos with one-bedroom apartments priced from $909K and two-bedroom units starting at $1.584M. The average price of $1,437 per square foot is above the neighborhood median of $1,342/sq ft, which likely reflects the building’s features such as extra high ceilings, extensive amenities, and central location a block south of Queens Plaza. In addition, the 15-year tax abatement and relatively low maintenance fees help further offset the cost.
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.

The tower’s shallow, L-shaped form, with the service core bundled along the inner wall, means that every unit faces south toward the street (except hallway-end units such as #22A and #PT1H, which stretch across the building and are exposed to both the street and the courtyard, which they overlook with balconies). Tall ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a lack of tall buildings across the street ensure that sunlight fills the units throughout the year, even on lower floors. The lack of obstructions across the street also allows for open views of the Court Square skyline from most apartments.
The building meets the intersection with a gently-curved corner, which lends corner units such as #5E and #11E grand living spaces with curved, column-free corners with floor-to-ceiling glass. These windows overlook the JACX, a twin-towered, 27-story, 1.2-million-square-foot-office complex nearing completion across the street, which will feature more than 50,000 square feet of retail and dining.

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 views of the Long Island City, Brooklyn, and Manhattan skylines.

The 25-story, all-glass tower, designed by Joe Sultana’s JLS Designs Architecture & Planning, stands at the intersection of 28th Street and 42nd Road on a centrally-located parcel in the Court Square section of central Long Island City. The street ambiance on the surrounding blocks is that of a quiet residential neighborhood, even though the building is surrounded with bustling sidewalks, parks, and dining in close proximity 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. Within a block, both Queens Plaza and Queensboro Plaza stations (E/M/N/R/W/7) offer one-stop access to Midtown, while the adjacent Queensboro Bridge allows for a direct bicycle commute (further encouraged by Star Tower’s bike storage room).
