Move over, the View. A roomier penthouse pad in Long Island City’s Vere 26 now holds the title of Queens’ priciest apartment listing.

The $3 million penthouse condominium, located at 26-26 Jackson Avenue, has topped its nearest competitor — a $2.5 million penthouse in the nearby View, at 46-30 Center Boulevard. The five bedroom pad, however, is roomier, at 2,422 square feet (to the View penthouse’s 1,763 square feet). It also boasts a large terrace, high ceilings and numerous floor-to-ceiling windows, according to the listing.

Douglas Elliman’s Jermain Miller has the listing, which will fall just shy of the Queen’s highest sale to date — a $3.1 million unit at the View — if it goes for the current ask.

Units in the rest of the 43-unit condominium building, designed by Robert Scarano with interiors by Andrés Escobar, range from the low $400,000s for a studio to the $3 million five-bedroom penthouse. [Curbed]Julie Strickland
