The lure of The Decker, an eight-story condo building at 21-10 44th Drive in Long Island City, has sold 75 percent of its units.
For starters, there’s the convenience of the 7 train — and then there’s the $30,000 incentive credit to whoever buys unit 6C.
With 1,310 square feet, and an additional 166 square feet of outdoor space, the three-bedroom, two-bath unit includes a dedicated Daikin HVAC system for individual heating and cooling, and four-inch-wide oak flooring.
The kitchen pairs Miton Cucine Italian cabinetry with Bosch appliances. Bathrooms are outfitted with Grohe and Kohler shower fixtures, along with Kohler toilets, sinks and bathtubs.
One feature that’s gone over big with buyers is the storage units — tall cages for suitcases and skis — that are included in the price. “A $25,000 value,” said Mary Beth McGill, licensed sales person at Modern Spaces. Separate bike storage can be purchased for $1,000.
The building has plenty of options if you wish to lay low. There’s a lounge with a recreation room, pool table, and fitness center. The shared outdoor space has barbecue grills, greenery and lounge furniture. The Manhattan views never seem to get old — neither does a virtual doorman.
Long Island City’s Court Square surrounds The Decker, with shopping and dining. Stop by MoMA PS1 or stroll through Gantry Plaza State Park. You can even fish from its piers.
There are playgrounds and running paths too. Nearby are Michelin-rated restaurants Casa Enrique and M. Wells Steakhouse.
Listed by Mary Beth McGill and Carlos Simoes of Modern Spaces, the home is asking $1.585 million. A credit of $30,000 goes to the buyer who signs before April 30. Common charges are $874 and taxes are $1,196 a month.
