Rental Building News and Offers

Long Island City continues to transform into a vibrant, round-the-clock neighborhood as another luxury rental readies to open its doors. Construction work is nearly finished at Bevel LIC at 42-20 27th Street, where sidewalk scaffolding and barriers have recently come down, and a new website is up and running. The 202-unit complex is notable for its striking architecture by ODA, a feature-packed amenity suite, and central location within a block of the Queensboro Plaza station. Prices start from $2,400/month for studios, $2,850/month for one-bedroom units, and $4,200/month for two-bedrooms.
The 18-story Bevel does not rise as high as many of its neighbors (such as the 58-story Tower 28 rental a block away), yet the building boasts one of the most dramatic designs in Long Island City. 22-22 Jackson Avenue, ODA's first foray into the neighborhood, was crafted in the firm's signature, staggered-block fashion. At Bevel, by contrast, the firm sliced the crisp concrete exterior with dramatic diagonal cutouts at the base, creating cavernous multi-story atria at the corners, and at the roof level, where spacious, sunlit terraces climb like a modern ziggurat.

Apartments feature hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and terraces in many units. The interiors, which come from Durukan Design, boast a modernist-chic theme of contrasting black-and-white surfaces, mood lighting, and tactile materials, which manifest through common spaces like the sunlit lobby, chevron-floored library, Zen-like business center, game room with shuffleboard and billiards tables, children’s playroom, party room lounge, fitness center, cinema room, and a courtyard with seating, green walls, and a water feature.
Development in Court Square, the subsection of Long Island City where Bevel stands, took off rapidly after a rezoning, which took place several years ago to capitalize on the area’s one-stop adjacency to Midtown and vastly underbuilt potential. In 2013, 27 on 27th, a 27-story rental across the street from Bevel, held a solitary presence over a neighborhood of parking lots and light industry. Today, Bevel shares the block with Luna LIC, a post-war office building converted to luxury rentals, and the recently-finished One LIC, which lanched leasing earlier this year. The two buildings bring street-level retail such as a CityMD branch, a Starbucks, and more.

The surrounding two-block radius also includes The Independent, which recently converted from rentals to a co-op, Hero LIC, a 22-story condo that nears completion, 1QPS, a 44-story tower with a 50-foot climbing wall and a rooftop pool facing Midtown, Star Tower, a 25-story condo, Jackson Park, a three-tower complex that surrounds a private park, and many other developments. Three block to the southwest, Skyline Tower has recently topped out as the city’s tallest building outside of Manhattan, while three blocks east, Sven is rapidly approaching its pinnacle that would rank as the second-tallest building in Queens.
