If you want to live your best life in Long Island City, you can do so at one of the neighborhood’s newest apartment towers for a lofty sum.
Rockrose Development Corporation has started leasing nearly 780 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units at The Hayden, a 50-story tower located at 43-25 Hunter St. that was to have been the tallest structure in LIC. According to Curbed, the building has since been eclipsed by the 66-story Court Square City View Tower now in development.
Studio apartments at The Hayden start at $2,465 a month, while a two-bedroom unit will cost you up to $4,695 a month. About 20 percent of the units have been reserved as affordable housing, and a lottery was held for those units last November. Rents for the affordable apartments range from $913 for a studio to $1,183 for a two-bedroom dwelling. Persons and families with incomes ranging from $32,654 to as much as $54,300 were eligible for the lottery.
Regardless of what their rent is, tenants at The Hayden will be getting plenty of bang for their buck.
Each apartment has washer-and-dryer units and floor-to-ceiling windows, according to Curbed. There’s also an array of in-house amenities including a basketball court and fitness center, on-site parking garage, bike storage, a playroom, a library, a dog grooming station, a Zen garden and a rooftop terrace offering incredible views of the Manhattan skyline.
Located in the heart of an ever-changing downtown Long Island City, The Hayden is a short walk to major subway lines, the Citicorp Building, retail shops, restaurants, museums and other attractions.
