The building’s amenities are designed to provide opportunities for plenty of recreational and social activity, and include a fitness center, a game room and lounge with a kitchen and fireplace, indoor and outdoor children’s playgrounds, and an outdoor terrace with seating, cabanas and a barbecue area. The building also includes onsite parking and bike storage. Pets are allowed.
The Alexander rises 27 stories above Rego Center, putting it in close proximity to a wide variety of shopping and dining options. It is also located within walking distance of the 63rd Drive station on the M and R subway lines, as well as the Long Island Expressway.
“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.”
