The Long Island City real estate market is
showing signs of life after the COVID-19
pandemic froze the nation’s fastest growing
neighborhood a year ago.
At the Skyline Tower at 3 Court Sq., monthly
sales more than doubled in March with 20 units
going into contract.
“The month of March was on fire and my team
was killing it,” Modern Spaces Founder and CEO
Eric Benaim said. “Not only the market is coming
back but New York City is coming back.”
Modern Spaces is handling the marketing and
sales of the Skyline Tower, the tallest condominium
building in Queens, rising 67 stories with 802
units. The total value of the project is expected
to be the first billion-dollar development in the
borough when the condo units sell out.
“We’re at 44 percent sold and we should be at
50 percent by the end of spring,” Benaim said.
“We’ve got 25 to 30 units occupied already with
more units moving quickly.”
Closings began in February and people began
moving in during March. The development
features an array of luxury amenities including
a state-of-the-art fitness center, a 75-foot indoor
pool, a whirlpool spa, sauna and steam room, a
children’s playroom, a business center and an
outdoor terrace. There are private, outdoor terraces
for 155 of the units.
Designed by Whitehall Interiors, apartments
feature floor-to-ceiling windows. Kitchens
feature quartz slab countertops and backsplashes,
stainless steel and Bosch appliances.
Accented by bronze hardware, the bathrooms
feature white marble and porcelain finishes. Concierge
services include in-home chefs and catering,
in-home salon services, housekeeping, personal
shopping and travel planning. The development
will house retail on the ground floor. At the base
of the building is an entry for the Court Square
station for E, G, M and 7 trains.
Skyline Tower offers 802 studio to four-bedroom
units ranging in size from 400 to 1,547 square feet,
with pricing starting at approximately $500,000
to $4 million.
“Skyline Tower is one of the most groundbreaking
projects in New York City and a true
pioneer for the future of residential real estate
in Long Island City,” Benaim said. “As the tallest
residential building in Queens, residents at
Skyline Tower will live a truly elevated lifestyle
with never-before-seen views of Manhattan, making
it one of the most exclusive properties in the
city’s condo market. And, with its prime location,
extensive amenity package and striking design,
we are confident that these new homes will draw
more young professionals and new families to the
