Sales start at LIC’s L haus

Aug.August 19, 2008 04:55 PM

Prudential Douglas Elliman officially launched the sales campaign for L haus, a 122-unit luxury condominium in Long Island City that is being built by the Stahl Organization.

When completed in next year, the building’s one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments will range from $500,000 to $1.5 million. The building at 11-02 49th Avenue and 11th Street is in Hunters Point, near the Pulaski Bridge and the No. 7 train.

Architect Centra/Ruddy designed a facade that includes green-hued cement fiber and corrugated metal fibers.

L haus will include more than 17,000 square feet of amenities, including a 10,000-square-foot outdoor space that includes a rolling lawn with lounges, a table and grill. The roof terrace will include private cabanas and public spaces.

Also included in the building are a 1,700-square-foot fitness center, an 880-square-foot media room with 16 seats and a 575-square-foot yoga room.
“It has a contemporary design using industrial elements that pay homage to the area’s former character,” said Melina Starr, a director at Prudential Douglass Elliman. “It’s not just another glass tower; it’s not just another brick building.”
She said a handful of other new buildings in the Hunters Point area are still selling, and she added that much of Long Island City’s new development has already been absorbed.
Other new buildings nearby include a 40-unit condo building at 10-50 Jackson Avenue, a 38-unit rental building at 11th St and Jackson Avenue and the 43-unit Robert Scarano-designed Vere 26 condo building.
