The Alexander in Rego Park, a new luxury rental building located above Rego Center at 61-55 Junction Blvd., is now available for leasing and immediate occupancy.
The new LEED-designed residential building offers 312 residences, ranging from studios to one and two-bedroom apartment layouts. Aside from the upscale finishes and open layout, the residencies also feature nine-foot-high ceilings, white oak flooring, Caesarstone quart countertops, Italian porcelain tiling within the kitchen and bathroom, and Whirlpool stainless steel appliances.
The building’s concept emulates that of Sky View Park, the luxury condominium tower complex that sits atop of Sky View Center in Flushing, situated within the hearts of their respective neighborhoods, they each offer similar amenities to suit their occupants’ lifestyles.
The Alexander allows residents access to all of their recreational and social amenities, including 24-hour concierge, a private state of the art fitness center complete with cardio and strength-training equipment, a game room, a public lounge with a kitchen and fireplace, both indoor and outdoor children’s playgrounds, and an outdoor landscaped terrace with seating, cabanas and a barbecue area.
Rising 27 stories above Rego Center, residents are offered a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline across the water, ease of access to many retail shopping areas and eateries, and transit to Central Queens and beyond. The location of the building offers convenient traveling; resident can easily reach subway service to Manhattan via the M and R lines nearby at the 63rd Drive-Rego Park station, and is in close proximity to the Long Island Expressway with connections to the Queens-Midtown Tunnel and Manhattan.
The Alexander is also situated near several of Queens’ most popular attractions, including the Queens Botanical Garden, the Queens Museum, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Citi Field, and the National Tennis Center.
“We’re very excited to introduce The Alexander to the Rego Park community,” said Geoff Smith, vice president of development for Vornado Realty Trust. “This vibrant, family-friendly area has a strong sense of community and is bustling with retail, dining and recreational activities. We believe The Alexander is a perfect complement to the area, and one that will attract both existing and new residents who are drawn to Rego Park’s attributes and desire a more modern, amenity-rich lifestyle.”
