New Apartment Buildings in NYC’s Hottest Boroughs

Fall time brings many things: leaves changing color, shorter days, and the start of the holiday season. But this year, fall means the opening of three brand new apartment buildings in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens — never mind fall, it’s almost as if Christmas has come early.

New Apartment Buildings

Manhattan — 555Ten


Starting September, 555Ten will begin accepting applications for their brand new complex located at 555 10th Ave. The building houses a total of 600 stunning apartments that feature wood floors, stainless steel appliances, and a washer and dryer in each apartment. Additionally, residents, before moving in, will have the option to choose between dark or light interior color schemes for floorings, kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities.

As a luxury apartment building, 555Ten boasts amenities like a bowling alley, a children’s playroom, building-wide Wifi, pet-care facilities including an outdoor dog park, a smartphone app to manage building services, an indoor saltwater lap pool, fitness gym, yoga studio, a rooftop pool and a residents’ club.

While the monthly rent on these units can’t expected to be anything but expensive, 120 of these apartments have been set aside for affordable housing units for families with an annual household income of $32,640 — $63,060. Some lucky New Yorkers will be able to score studios for $913/month, a 1 bedroom for $980/month, a 2 bedroom for $1,165/month or a 3 bedroom for $1,315/month.

Brooklyn — The Hamilton


On August 31, 2016, a 5-story apartment at 968 60th Street will begin leasing its 82 state-of-the-art apartments. With caesarstone countertops, stainless steel appliances, wide-plank wood floors, built-in iPod docks and speakers, and an in-unit dishwasher, these units are hard to pass up.

But on top of beautiful floor plans, The Hamilton offers residents access to a game room, fitness center, business center, residents’ library, children’s playroom, golf simulator, landscaped roof deck, onsite parking spaces and a pool.

Surprisingly, these apartments come at a reasonable cost for not being classified as “affordable housing.” $1,800 per month will get you a studio and $2,300 per month a 1 bedroom.

Queens — Aurora

New Apartment Buildings

Long Island City’s Aurora just opened its doors to residents on August 1, 2016, but apartments are still available. At 29–11 Queens Plaza North, apartments are treated like works of art with floor-to-ceiling windows, white oak floors, white lacquer cabinets, white quartz countertops, dishwashers and even glass-enclosed showers in some apartments. Included in the LIC building are rooftop decks, high-definition TVs, outdoor grills, rooftop mist showers, fitness center, on-site laundry, and parking spaces aplenty.

Among the Aurora’s available units are a 1 bedroom for $2,755, 2 bedrooms for $4,476 and 3 bedrooms for $5,958.

These new apartment buildings flaunt their luxuriousness for all to see, making those of us who don’t live there green with envy. But as the year comes to a close, more and more complexes are springing up around the city and offering up luxury. Be on the lookout for more amazing apartments in future CribRater installments!
