Leasing has begun on an 8-story rental building that has just gone up in a leafy section of Kew Gardens.
The building, called The Grove and located at 83-67 116th St., features 46 units, including 32 market rate apartments, in a modern building with a new-age design. The market rate units range in price from $1,650 for a studio to $3,400 for a 2 bedroom on the top floor with a terrace.
The building is located within 2 blocks from Forest Park and many of the units have sweeping views of the 538-acre park, which is the third largest park in Queens. It is also within 3 blocks of Lefferts Boulevard, a major thoroughfare in Kew Gardens, and is in close proximity to the LIRR and subway.
The first floor consists of three units and the lobby, followed by five to seven units per story through the eighth floor. The building features amenities such as a fitness room, children’s play room, storage units, a laundry room and a dog run in the back yard. There is also roof access and a virtual doorman.
The project is being developed by Whitestone-based MTZ Group. NY Space Finders is doing the marketing.
“We at NY Space Finders are very excited to launch this new apartment building for MTZ Group,” said Luca Di Ciero, founder of NY Space Finders.
“83-67 116th St. is an impressive building, drenched in natural light, high ceilings and scenic views. We are fortunate to be working with MTZ Group as they are proven to be pioneers in this new development market in Kew Gardens.”
The developers are offering one month free rent and there are no brokerage fees. Residents will be able to move in by the end of the year.
“The units all have floor-to-ceiling windows, stainless steal appliances and beautiful kitchens—with stone countertops and backsplashes,” said Jonathan Cazull, a broker with NY Space Finders.
The bathrooms, Cazull added, also feature stone tile floors as well as shower stalls with glass enclosures.
