“Let there be light” is a mantra you’ll hear often from future residents attracted to the new condo building at 21-17 31st Avenue in Astoria.
Launched by the Corcoran Group’s Gavrilov Grosso Team in June of this year, the seven-story brick-faced Verona Condominium has already sold half of its 56 residences.
Its brick facade, glass balconies, and terraces were designed by Meltzer/Costa & Associates and developed by the Park Construction Corp.
Available units are studios to two-bedrooms, all with Italian porcelain tile baths, in-unit washer/dryer, and large, light-filled living spaces.
Buyers can choose their own kitchen finishes, from either modern gray or white shaker cabinets with stainless accent and mosaic backsplash. Both palettes are accompanied by Caesarstone countertops, Grohe chrome faucets, stainless steel undermount sink and Bosch appliances. All kitchens are equipped with an exhaust system that vents to the outside.
It’s not just sun-starved Manhattanites who are interested in Verona. “Buyers from Astoria who want to stay in the neighborhood are interested, and people from Long Island City looking for more space,” says Aleksey Gavrilov, from the Gavrilov Grosso Team. “And we have seen many buyers who have chosen Astoria over Brooklyn.”
Amenities include a virtual doorman and package room, cold storage for groceries, bike storage, fitness center, garage, complimentary private storage, laundry facilities, roof deck with BBQ grill and space for dining and lounging.
Deeded parking spots are available for purchase.
Prices start at $513,000, and the condominium is eligible for the 15-year 421A tax abatement. The building’s preferred mortgage lender is Paul Papoutsakis of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. Occupancy begins in spring 2018.
The Verona is short walking distance to two subway lines (N/W), Q69 bus, and the new NYC ferry service. Nearby is the Socrates Sculpture Park, Astoria Performing Arts Center, and Noguchi Museum.
Along with culture there’s cuisine: Italian food and wine bar (Vesta), smoked meats and live music (Strand Smokehouse), and being in Astoria, you’re never far from an 80-year-old Greek diner that has rebranded itself as an upscale diner/whiskey bar (Sanfords).
