Long Island City is increasingly becoming home to large developments, and one of those projects made the top 10 list of developments completed in 2015 in America.
According to RENTCafe, an apartment listing site, the 925-unit Hunters Point South Living composed of Hunters Point South Commons and Hunters Point South Crossing, is only second in size to a development in Orange County, California.
The 32-story and 37-story projects were completed last September at 1-55 Borden Ave. and 1-50 50th Ave., respectively. The rent-stabilized apartments are pet-friendly and include amenities such as a 24-hour attended lobby, on-site manager and staff, a party room, an outdoor terrace, a fitness center, a playroom, a bike room, a tech lounge and an outdoor community garden.
The only other project from New York City to make the list was One North Fourth in Brooklyn, which has 509 rental units and is located in Williamsburg. It opened in February of 2015 and includes a spinning and yoga room, outdoor pool, a sundeck with a movie screen, a playroom, a barbecue area, a media lounge with billiards and a party room.
