REGO PARK, N.Y., July 22, 2015 – Leasing has begun at The Alexander at Rego Center, a new luxury rental building located in the heart of Queens’ vibrant Rego Park neighborhood. Immediate occupancy is available.
Ideally situated at 61-55 Junction Boulevard, The Alexander brings a new level of urban sophistication to Rego Park with modern design, stunning interiors, first-class amenities and services, spectacular views and unrivalled access to shopping, dining, recreation and public transportation to Manhattan.
The new, LEED-designed residential tower has 312 residences ranging from studios to one- and two-bedroom layouts. Vornado Realty Trust tapped SLCE Architects and interior design firm Fogerty Finger to create thoughtfully-designed residences and common spaces for The Alexander. Upscale finishes and appointments adorning the open layouts include nine-foot ceiling heights, white oak flooring, Caesarstone quart countertops and Italian porcelain tile flooring in kitchens and baths, and Whirlpool stainless steel appliances. Net effective monthly rents currently start from $2,045 for studios, $2,455 for one-bedroom residences and $3,130 for two-bedroom homes (net effective rents based on one month free rent for a limited time).
A full suite of recreational and social amenities will enhance residents’ lifestyles, including 24-hour concierge, a state-of-the-art fitness center with cardio and strength-training equipment, a game room and social lounge with a kitchen and fireplace, an indoor and outdoor children’s playground, and an outdoor landscaped terrace with seating, cabanas and a barbecue area. The building is also pet friendly and features bike storage and onsite parking.
Rising 27 stories above Rego Center, residents will marvel at the breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline, Central Queens and beyond while enjoying easy access to the roster of nationally-recognized retailers and eateries below at the area’s premier shopping destination. Additional conveniences on Queens and Woodhaven Boulevards, popular multi-cultural dining options along Austin Street, and subway service to Manhattan via the M and R lines, are all within walking distance of the building. Celebrated area attractions include the Queens Botanical Garden, the Queens Museum, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Citi Field and the National Tennis Center, while major highways such as The Long Island Expressway connecting to the Midtown Tunnel and Manhattan, are close at hand.
“We’re very excited to introduce The Alexander to the Rego Park community,” said Geoff Smith, Vice President of Development for Vornado Realty Trust.“
This vibrant, family-friendly area has a strong sense of community and is bustling with retail, dining and recreational activities. We believe The Alexander is a perfect complement to the area, and one that will attract both existing and new residents who are drawn to Rego Park’s attributes and desire a more modern, amenity-rich lifestyle.”
