Beautiful loft-like apartment with a sleeping area/home office at the iconic Powerhouse Condominium in Long Island City! This bright, airy residence in an incredible amenity-rich building features large windows with stretching views, elegant hardwood floors, and an open-concept layout with a large living room and dining room for entertaining. The open kitchen with a big island serves the living area and is nicely appointed with generous cabinets and stainless steel Viking appliances. A spacious sleeping area or home office adds to your flexibility while a full bathroom, convenient in-home washer and dryer, and ample closet space complete the comfort.
The Powerhouse was interestingly transformed from the Pennsylvania Railroad Power Station designed by McKim, Mead & White, built in 1909 to provide electricity for trains, and closed in 1920, but original details such as steel beams still abound. The fabulous residential conversion of this industrial building and 4-story rooftop addition, brought to life by architect Karl Fischer, resulted in the creation of 177 luxurious condo units, with interior design by Andres Escobar. Residents enjoy an incredible assortment of services and amenities, including a stunning modern lobby, doorman & concierge services, a live-in super, video intercom, state-of-the-art fitness center, Aqua Grotto spa with a whirlpool, sauna, steam & massage rooms + lockers, a children’s playroom, event/party room, game room with pool table, full-service garage, business center, lounge, screening room, bike storage, and a wonderful rooftop deck with city views, a sunbathing deck, BBQ grills & picnic tables.
Located on 51st Avenue in Long Island City, near Gantry Plaza State Park, a 12-acre riverside oasis offering gorgeous views of the Midtown Manhattan skyline as well as playgrounds, playing fields, outdoor concerts, and a dog park (yes, pets are allowed at The Powerhouse!). Food choices abound from riverfront spots like Shi and Maiella, to eateries all along the newly hip Vernon Boulevard. Also minutes away is an assortment of transportation, like the Vernon/Jackson 7 train two blocks away that’s just one stop from Grand Central, the Water Taxi, and 495 to the Midtown Tunnel.
