A new multi-million dollar deal has gone down in Queens. The tower known as “Shirokia Tower”, an 11-story residential building located in Flushing has been traded by the incredible amount of $25 million. The deal was completed August 31st. The sale was announced by the Corbin Group, at Besen & Associates.
The tower in question is addressed at 142-28 38th Avenue in, as we said, Flushing, Queens, New York City. As far as location, the Shirokia is pretty well-placed, just half a block away from Flushing Commons, another huge development. Flushing Commons spans 1.8 million square feet in over 1.5 acres. This is a mixed-use area with an $850 million price tag attached.
Greg Corbin, one of the main figures attached to the project, spoke greatly about the advantages of investing in Flushing. This is one of the strongest markets in the five boroughs. Prices have done nothing but go up in the last few years and the prospects remain just as promising.
Going back to the Shirokia itself, this is an eleven story tower, like we mentioned earlier. As far as amenities and luxuries go, the tower is very well-equipped: it features a lobby with a security desk while the condos include wood flooring and granite countertops. Furthermore, the appliances are all made of stainless steel and the bathroom fixtures are Kohler. The ceilings are very high, reaching almost 11 feet and many of the condos include either a balcony or a terrace. In addition to all of this, washer and dryers are included in the units, as well as intercom system with video and audio. The units themselves are fifteen two-bedrooms, seven three-bedrooms and one super luxurious penthouse duplex with five bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Another luxury that the Shirokia includes is its views. Since it is one of the tallest towers in the area, it allow for an amazing perspective of the Manhattan skyline (as well as the currently-developing one in Flushing). The entrance is very calm, since the area it is in is a residential one but, at the same time, is very close by to busier more commercial areas. International and national brands as well as cafes and restaurants are just a short walk away. Flushing is one of the most vibrant and fun areas of Queens, and its downtown is the largest urban area in Queens. Any person living in the Shirokia will be able to take advantage of it.
