The worlds of art and real estate will soon collide in a new condominium development in Long Island City, coming to the fast-growing Queens neighborhood next year.
GALERIE is a new 11-story, 182-residence condominium, located at 22-18 Jackson Ave., across the street from the MoMA P.S. 1 museum.
In addition to a conventional living environment, the building will feature a curated art program for residents and the community through its ArtBox — a permanent, street-level rotating art exhibit dedicated to showing the art of local artists. The art will be featured throughout the common spaces and in the building’s own sales gallery, located at 22-22 Jackson Ave. next to the condominium.
The artists whose work will be featured in GALERIE’s initial exhibition include Christopher Spinelli, Cara Lynch, Kyoko Takei, Miya Ando, Fei Li, Monica Delgado, Preston Trombly, Ann Cofta and Nancy Gesimondo. In addition, the sales gallery will feature a total of 20 artists whose work will be available for purchase, ranging from $275 to $10,000 per piece. Those interested can buy works directly from the artists.
GALERIE will feature a concrete, brick and glass façade, and three unique architectural glazing styles: punched, curtain wall and window wall. The building’s exterior is designed by the New York-based ODA architecture firm, with interiors by Paris Forino Interior Design. When complete, GALERIE will have studio apartments, along with one-, two- and three- bedroom homes.
Residents of the building will be able to enjoy 13,000 square feet of amenities, including a 39-by-13 foot indoor pool, fitness center and movement studio, library with books selected from the MoMA PS1 bookstore, lounge area and expansive rooftop terrace. Secure bike storage, enclosed parking spaces and rooftop cabanas for purchase will also be available.
Though it is currently under construction, GALERIE is slated to be finished by mid-2019, according to a spokesperson for the development.
