Today YIMBY has the reveal for The Rowan, a new ground-up condominium project coming to 21-21 31st Street, in the Ditmars section of Astoria, Queens. Designed by New York City’s DXA Studio, The building will feature a terraced massing of light gray masonry that rests above a glass-encased retail base.
The structure will top-off at six stories, with 46 individual units within. Residences include studio, single-, two-, and three-bedroom units that range in size from approximately 425 to 1,857 square feet.
Each residence will arrive stocked with high-end amenities and about half of the collection will include private outdoor space. The penthouse units will include large private terraces, oversized windows, and direct views of the Manhattan skyline. Future occupants will also have access to a fitness center, a resident’s lounge with both indoor and outdoor areas, a library with direct access to the building’s “sensory garden,” a children’s playroom, a soundproof music practice room, a pet spa, and storage facilities for both packages and bicycles. A landscaped roof deck serves as the building’s crowning amenity and includes an outdoor kitchen and BBQ station, dining areas, and private cabanas.
“With The Rowan, we are creating a product that hasn’t existed in Astoria—a modern, thoughtfully designed condominium building that has all the high-end finishes and amenities you see across the city,” said John Petras, Managing Principal of RockFarmer Properties. “As a Queens-based developer that knows the borough incredibly well, we believe The Rowan will speak to an underserved buyer in the area looking for new construction in one of New York City’s best neighborhoods.”
Construction is ongoing and expected to wrap by 2020. Sales will launch this fall, with prices expected to range from $495,000 to $2.15 million.
