Silver Star Motors Completes its Structure on First High-Rise Building in Long Island City
Silver Star Motors, a long time Queens Mercedes-Benz dealership has just completed it structure on 37-14 36th Street. 37-14 36th Street one of the very first high-rise multi-family residential building in east Long Island City/Dutch Kills section of Queens, NY is a 10-story, 135,000-sq.-ft. building. The building will have 85 residential units, 30 studios, 27 one-bedroom units, 28 two-bedroom units and 2 three-bedroom units. A cellar will house residential parking spaces, residential storage, and utility systems. Private terraces will be built into 30 percent of the units. Amenities include a gym with a 1,600-square foot outdoor barbecue area, yoga space, and an outdoor area. There will also be a communal lounge which will try to attract a younger audience to the building.
This structure is the harbinger of the new wave of residential development in this section of Queens, which has not yet seen any major new projects, despite proximity to Manhattan and easy commute links.Silver Start Motors plan to occupy the first two floors of the new structure. The dealership will be a modern, open space, fitting with Mercedes-Benz’s industrial aesthetic. On the first floor of the dealership, the flooring will be a gray porcelain tile that can withstand car traffic. The ceilings are 20′ high and are of flat-plate concrete. To reduce ambient noise in the expansive space, MADGI is using an acoustical baffle system that mimics the look of structural beams, which are required by Mercedes’ standards.
Montroy Andersen DeMarco is the architect, 1 Oak Contracting is the builder, and MNS Real Estate is the broker.
