A new eight-story condo set to go up in Long Island City, QNS44, will include some unique amenities.

Located at 11-12 44th Dr., the condo will be developed by Rybak Development and is replacing two one-story buildings. QNS44 will feature 49 one-, two- and three-bedroom condos starting at $659,000, according to its website.

A rooftop pool deck will feature a heated saltwater pool, lounge seating, grill and a wet bar. The gym will include strength and training resistance, cardio and fitness equipment and free weights. The developer purchased the site in 2016 for $14 million, according to The Real Deal.


The building will also feature what developers are calling a media/social room with an entertainment system, Wi-Fi, seating, a coffee maker and refrigerator.

QNS44 will also cater to residents’ pets with a pet spa bathing station and fan to dry off their furry friends. The building will also include indoor parking for 31 cars, YIMBY reported.


“The past two decades have seen Long Island City transform from an industrial Manhattan portal into its own destination as Queens’ fastest growing neighborhood; a family-oriented community of professionals, artists, and businesses,” the building’s website read. “Today, that transformation is complete. Investing in an LIC home means putting your faith in a decade’s worth of sustained growth in value.”

The condos will most likely become available for purchase in the summer of 2018 as the website indicates.
