The Green House (Charney) The Green House (Charney)
Before Long Island City jumped on the radar of New York City renters, this section of Queens was known for its industrial buildings that served as excellent canvases for a robust street art scene. But unlike at 5Pointz, the somewhat sterile luxury rental that rose on the former site of a famous graffiti-covered warehouse (and led to a landmark legal decision that awarded the artists $6.75 million in damages), the team behind The Green House seeks to embrace this history by making a mural part of the building's design.
With a portfolio that includes The Dime in Williamsburg, developer Charney has experience combining a neighborhood's history with the needs of today's renters. The Green House's design by Studio V Architecture makes a statement on the street corner, but this 12-story building is truly set apart by a large mural by FAILE, a Brooklyn-based street art duo that seeks to blur the line between "high" and "low" culture. The name is an anagram of "A Life," the first collaboration between Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller, and their work has been displayed all over the world since its inception in 1999.

Market-rate rents are not yet available, but CityRealty listings show that the median Long Island City rent comes to $3,595/month for studios, $4,120/month for one-beds, and $6,155/month for two-beds. CityRealty listings also show only 74 publicly listed availabilities in Long Island City, the vast majority of which are located in the new, amenity-rich rentals that have taken shape to make the most of proximity to Manhattan and spectacular skyline and water views.

Building permits call for attended parking and a bike room, but the building is around the block from the Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue 7 train and close to the 21st Street G train. It also benefits from an address near Gantry Plaza State Park, Hunters Point South Park, the Michelin-starred Casa Enrique, and local favorites like Yumpling, Hibino LIC, Manetta’s, Tuk Tuk, and Mango Mango LIC.
