Here is an opportunity to live atop CORTE, a new condominium designed by Argentinian architects Dieguez Fridman and New York firm Beyer Blinder Belle. Penthouse E is designed with clean lines and a simple plan to make maximum use of the space.
The apartment is flooded with light, as the front walls of each room are composed of the tinted curtain glass that wraps the building’s facade. Step through the entry and into the spacious living and dining area with its curtain wall of glass.
In the kitchen, a stone-wrapped peninsula contributes to the clean, open feeling of the space. The kitchen design is minimalistic, with smooth surfaces and ample room for preparation and food storage.
The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and a 5 by 7 foot walk-in closet. A second bedroom is adjacent to the apartment’s second bathroom, as well as a laundry area with a washer/dryer.
The building’s common spaces are designed to be as comfortable and welcoming as the individual apartments. Residents enjoy a large roof deck with barbecue grills as well as an interior lounge suitable for hosting friends or enjoying a glass of wine in comfortable surroundings.
CORTE’s amenities include a fitness center and kids’ playroom, a bike room and a media center. A doorman is on site 24/7, and there is a live-in super and a shared laundry room for additional convenience. Parking is available for purchase.
CORTE is convenient for commuters, with both the Queensboro Plaza and Queens Plaza stops a short walk away. There are also a host of nearby restaurants and shopping, as well as the Queensbridge waterfront park.
Listed by Kayla Lee and Juan C. Castellanos of Modern Spaces, the apartment is asking $1.585 million. Taxes are $1,170 and monthly common charges are $1,258.
