Residents of The Alexander at Rego Center can now turn their attention to the outdoors of their new home for socializing, relaxing and taking in sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline and Central Queens with the opening of the new luxury rental building’s landscaped terrace.
Located on the 7th floor of the 27-story tower, the outdoor amenity deck features coveted green space for lounging and entertaining, complete with a barbecue area, seating and cabanas. A playground with an interactive water feature offers the building’s youngest residents a playful space of their own. The new open-air amenity enhances the socially-interactive lifestyle offered at The Alexander, which already includes such indoor shared spaces as 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 children’s play room and an elegant lobby with 24-hour Concierge.
“Our goal from the onset was to create a building that not only takes full advantage of a prime location one block from subway service to Manhattan and just steps from numerous dining and shopping options, but also delivers a modern living experience to Rego Park,” said Geoff Smith, Vice President of Development for Vornado Realty Trust. “In terms of design, open living spaces, amenities and services, The Alexander does just that.”
Located at 61-55 Junction Boulevard, The Alexander soars above Rego Center, providing residents with breathtaking views while offering easy access to the roster of nationally-recognized retailers and eateries below. 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. Major highways such as The Long Island Expressway connecting to the Midtown Tunnel and Manhattan, are close at hand.
The LEED-designed residential tower features a collection of 312 well-appointed studios, one- and two-bedroom layouts. Designed by SLCE Architects, with common spaces from Fogerty Finger, the stylish residences feature open layouts with nine-foot ceiling heights, white oak flooring, Caesarstone quartz countertops and Italian porcelain tile flooring in kitchens and baths, and Whirlpool stainless steel appliances. Monthly rents currently start from $2,205 for studios, $2,565 for one-bedroom residences and $3,185 for two-bedroom homes (net effective rents based on one month free for a limited time). Immediate occupancy is available.
“The Alexander has successfully drawn residents from Long Island City, Manhattan and Brooklyn with a contemporary urban living experience coupled with convenience and value,” notes Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, The Alexander’s exclusive leasing and marketing agent. “The building is surrounded by an eclectic mix of shopping, dining and nightlife, and with two subway lines to Manhattan just steps away, it is also a commuter’s dream.”
