QUEENS — A new luxury rental building planned for Rego Park will feature glass walls and balconies as well as white diagonal columns, bringing a modern look to the neighborhood dominated by decades-old red brick apartment dwellings, a newly released rendering shows.
The building, at 98-02 Queens Blvd. between 65th Road and 66th Avenue, will also boast a number of Manhattan-style amenities such as a gym, indoor pool, storage room for bikes and children’s playground, according to the developer, George Baharestani.
About 60 units in the building, including studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, will come with modern bathrooms, granite countertops and stainless steel kitchen appliances, he said.
The apartments will take up the top seven stories of the new building and retail will occupy the ground level. The developer is also planning to open a community space in the building, which is one of several new high-end dwellings in the neighborhood.
The new building will replace the current 1-story complex, which houses several storefronts (photo credit: DNAinfo.com/Ewa Kern-Jedrychowska).
