The largest redevelopment project in Rego Park is looking to rent out its first 100 rooms.

The Drake, located 62-60 99th St., is a 419-unit project that offers a mix of one- to four-bedroom units. Modern Spaces is launching The Drake’s first 100 units starting at $2,000 per month.

“Formerly known as Saxon Hall, 62-60 99th Street was given new life as The Drake with extensive renovations that elevated the building’s amenity package and in-home finishes,”  said Eric Benaim, CEO and Founder of Modern Spaces. “Named after a historic cinema, which was a lively social and cultural center in the 1950s, The Drake honors Rego Park’s rich history, while delivering upgraded high-end apartments to an area dominated by Tudor-style homes.”

The building was sold to Modern Spaces for $135 million. As a part of the renovations, the building was gutted and the apartments were redesigned with high ceilings, oversized windows and open layouts. Kitchens were updated with light wood cabinets, Quartz countertops, stainless steel Whirlpool appliances and white subway tile backsplashes.

To match the kitchen’s aesthetic, bathrooms will feature light wood vanities, inverted subway tiles, concrete stone flooring, Kohler soaking tubs and separate shower stalls.

In addition to the updated apartments, The Drake will feature a number of luxurious amenities, including a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness center, a pet spa, a resident’s lounge, a children’s playroom and a shared laundry room.
