The largest residential development to come to Sunnyside in recent years is expected to be completed by the end of August and the 38 rental units contained within it will soon be hitting the market.
The development, a nine-story building located at 41-18 43rd Street (between 43rd and Skillman Avenues), will be comprised of 18, 1brms and 20, 2brm apartments, according to developer Hooshang Nemat.
Nemat said he will start marketing the building Aug. 1 and expects tenants to start moving in Oct. 1
The one bedroom units are approximately 650 square feet in size, with rents starting at $1,935, Nemat said. The two-bedrooms are between 900-950 square feet and will start at $2,950, he added.
“We anticipate that we will fill the whole building in about 2 months,” Nemat said. “We compared our prices to Long Island City and we are much lower, yet our building is just as luxurious.”
Nemat said that each unit contains a Jacuzzi, a washer/drier, stainless steel appliances, an Italian kitchen and polished porcelain/marble flooring.
The building will have rooftop facilities, including a lounge area. The apartments on the higher floors have both a balcony and a terrace.
There are 19 parking spots that will be available for rent and will be priced between $200 and $250 per month. These spots are for tenants only.
The development has taken over 2 years to complete and Nemat said that there have been several construction delays in the process.
Meanwhile, a nine-story 17-unit building that is being constructed at 41-28 44th Street appears to be near completion. However, the developer Vincent Romano could not be reached for comment.
