The Harrison offers prospective buyers much in the way of aesthetics and amenities, but when it comes to apartment No. 204, it’s all about the terrace.
Although the apartment, located at 27-21 44th Drive in Long Island City, is plenty big in its own right, the private terrace is even bigger. Facing northeast, it measures roughly 36 by 34 feet and looks out over the expanse of Long Island City’s growing landscape. There is plenty of space for lounging, barbecuing, gardening and entertaining — extending the living space of the home.
Inside, the home’s classic details are courtesy of the design team at GF55 Partners and include 5-inch-wide white oak flooring, casement windows, Shaker cabinets and subway tile.
The terrace is the focus of the open plan living area. It flows into the open kitchen, where the white Shaker cabinets and glass subway tile backsplash are complemented by Technistone quartz counters and Bosch appliances.
The two bedrooms also look out onto the terrace. The master has an ensuite bath with step-in shower and a walk-in closet. A second bathroom off the hall has a deep soaking club and a linen closet.
The master bath is equipped with Calacatta Prima marble floors and walls, and the second bath has a black porcelain tile floor. There are Signature fixtures in both bathrooms.
There is a washer-dryer in the unit. The entry has a closet for coats and room for a small table or landing strip.
Building amenities include a roof deck with a 360-degree vista, as well as a children’s play area, a lounge, and a fully equipped fitness center.
The Harrison’s articulated masonary facade ensures that it stands out from the sea of glass towers throughout the city.
Of course, there are plenty of reasons to leave The Harrison and explore the surrounding neighborhood, just one subway stop from Manhattan.
There are Michelin-rated restaurants Casa Enrique and M. Wells Steakhouse and world class exhibits, installations, films and more at MoMA PS 1. Gantry Plaza State Park, with bike paths, jogging and even fishing is just a few blocks away. And the nightlife is highly rated, thanks to local watering holes like Dutch Kills and LIC Bar.
Listed by Andy Dimakopoulos and Kayla Lee of Modern Spaces, No. 204 is asking $1.4 million, with taxes of $165 and monthly common charges of $950.
