A high-end, 11-story condominium will rise in Long Island City’s art district.

The Jackson, a 56-unit luxury development, is slated for completion in the first half of 2017 and will offer a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom homes at 13-33 Jackson Ave. Prices will range from $600,000 to $3 million.

One-bedroom and three-bedroom penthouses, which will have 18-foot ceilings, will be available for purchase starting at $4 million.

Each unit will feature wide-plank white oak flooring and kitchens equipped with Liebehr, Bosch and Bertazzoni appliances, walnut cabinetry and Caesarstone countertops. Bathroom features include Waterworks fixtures and Carrera and Travertine tiling.

The property will also pay tribute to its location in Long Island City’s art district. Artist Tom Fruin, who created the popular stained-glass water tower and house on the DUMBO waterfront, was commissioned by developers to create a glass-art mosaic wall in the building’s lobby, constructed from blackened steel and acrylic.

Brokerage firm Modern Spaces is marketing the property, which is owned by Charney Construction & Development, Ascent Development and Tavros Capital Partner.

“The Jackson is creating a high-end level of luxury that doesn’t currently exist in this area of Long Island City,” said Eric Benaim, CEO and Founder of Modern Spaces. “This project is gearing up to not only change that, but to also complement the neighborhood by reflecting its history and personality in the building design, particularly with the stained art-glass façade we are creating in the lobby.”

Amenities at The Jackson will include a social room, a children’s room, a rooftop with private cabanas and a gym. The plan also includes a ground-floor retail component and 22 parking spaces for sale.

Units will be available for purchase in March 2016.

“The Jackson is slated to become an icon along the Jackson Avenue corridor, where we expect new development to thrive in the coming years,” said Sam Charney, principal of Charney Construction & Development.

Fogerty Finger Architecture is responsible for the design.
