The Maximilian, one of the most stylish residential developments in the western-most part of Queens is now fully built, Real Estate Weekly reported. The announcement was made by McGowan Builders Inc. which served as general contractor and construction manager for the 12-story apartment building.
Developed by a joint venture between two prominent New York-based real estate companies—Rose Associates and O’Connor Capital Partners—The Maximilian was built on a former brownfield site located at 5-11 47th Avenue in the rapidly gentrifying Hunter’s Point neighborhood of Long Island City.
The full-service, LEED-certified rental building was designed by SLCE Architects and incorporates energy-efficient, environmentally sustainable features. It includes 188 luxury residential apartments consisting of studios, one- and two-bedroom units featuring polished hardwoods and fully equipped kitchens with cabinetry imported from Italy.
Amenities at The Maximilian were planned for pleasure, convenience and relaxation—making the building’s residents feel like they live in a boutique hotel. The list of perks includes an outdoor theater and barbecue area located on the roof deck, an indoor lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness center, concierge, bicycle storage and laundry room.
In September 2013, shortly after McGowan Builders celebrated the topping out of the building, Rose Associates—which manages the leasing and marketing operations at The Maximilian—announced a preview leasing at the luxury building. Reportedly, rents at the luxury mid-rise start at $1,975 for a studio, $2,530 for a one-bedroom, and $3,490 for a two-bedroom unit. According to Real Estate Weekly, the developers are currently offering one month of free rent and one month owner-paid commission as a limited time move-in incentive for prospective residents.
