Rental Building News and Offers

Long Island City These newly constructed rental buildings offer sky-high views and luxurious amenity packages.
The waterfront neighborhood of Long Island City has had an incredible construction boom. There are thousands of newly constructed rental and condo units and many are in large buildings with amenities worthy of an all-inclusive Caribbean resort.

With Amazon’s decision to have a major presence in Long Island City, its 25,000 new workers will need a place to go when they leave the office. We're predicting many will be interested in the latest luxury rental developments spread throughout the neighborhood - but interest in the neighborhood is already on the rise. Searches for residential apartments in the neighborhood are up 281% compared to the daily averages prior to the Amazon announcement. The neighborhood currently has an occupancy rate of 98.2% and about 15,400 units currently either under construction or in a planning phase. Will we see even more development?
