We envision The Classic as an opportunity to join old and new and create a building that provides an upscale, fully-amenitized living environment as well as serves as a visual anchor for this intimate neighborhood
Kew Gardens, Queens (PRWEB) June 19, 2008
Sales have opened at The Classic at Kew Garden s, a new luxury condominium being developed by the family-owned Kamali Organization in this sought-after Queens, NY neighborhood.
The six-story building - which debuted with a fully-furnished two-bedroom model home and onsite sales gallery -- perfectly blends old world charm with modern amenities due to a unique architectural design that combines four newly added floors with two existing levels that all pay homage to the English Colonial design commonly found in Kew Gardens.
Prices for the collection of just 52 one-, two-and three-bedroom condominium homes initially begin in the mid-$300,000s. Initial occupancy is scheduled for this fall.
"We envision The Classic as an opportunity to join old and new and create a building that provides an upscale, fully-amenitized living environment as well as serves as a visual anchor for this intimate neighborhood," says Jackie Kamali, a principal of the development firm that bears his name. "The result is a unique and magnificent building where no two floorplans are alike."
The Classic also brings Manhattan-style amenities and services to Kew Gardens. The Classic Club features a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, a children's playroom and an exquisitely decorated social lounge with a catering kitchen, dining room, game table and a large plasma TV. There's also The Salon, a relaxed setting for reading the newspaper or utilizing the available wireless capabilities, as well as complimentary bike storage, available personal storage, and an attended indoor garage.
"Elegance and sophistication are personified in The Classic's exquisite lobby which was designed by the renowned interior architect/designer Amir Khamneipur Design and boasts Tao Ci Botticino diagonally laid flooring with a coco colored border and walls covered in custom leather panels with recessed lighting," notes Jackie Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors, Inc., the building's marketing and exclusive sales agent. "A part-time doorman will be on hand to greet residents when they arrive home and assist with package deliveries and more."
Amir Khamneipur also designed the elegant condominium residences at The Classic which combine stylish interiors with an abundance of private outdoor space. The homes offer from 574 to 1,385 square feet of luxury living space, along with a considerable array of high-end amenities and finishes.
Found throughout the floor plans are carefully-selected custom appointments, including gourmet kitchens with Aquamarina granite countertops, espresso-colored cabinetry, and GE® Profile appliances. Lavish master baths feature Calacutta marble counters, Tao Ci porcelain tile floors and showers, glass enclosed shower stalls and Kohler fixtures. Many of the homes also boast considerable outdoor space ranging from unique windowed loggias to expansive terraces.
"We conducted extensive research and worked with our architects to design this building to fulfill market needs," Mr. Kamali points out. "For example, The Classic primarily consists of two-bedroom floorplans which are appealing to young families and professional couples.
"We've also appointed the homes with exceptional finishes and created amenities not commonly found in this area. As a result, we're already experiencing significant interest from both local residents who want to move-up from a rental apartment or a dated co-op into a newly-constructed residence in a Manhattan-style building, as well as buyers who have been priced out of New York City and recognize the extraordinary value here."
The Classic is located in the heart of a neighborhood that offers the allure and privacy of a genteel, suburban environment, yet is within easy reach of the modern conveniences and amenities of a cosmopolitan City. The community appeals to those seeking a sophisticated urban lifestyle near restaurants, services and mass transportation options in a less-congested neighborhood slightly removed from more populated downtown epicenters.
"While Kew Gardens is in the shadow of Manhattan, it has retained the same charm and character of an old fashioned neighborhood," notes The Marketing Directors' Ms. Urgo. "Yet, the area is extremely pedestrian-friendly with an abundance of shopping, entertainment and cultural opportunities to reduce the need to travel by car. What's more, The Classic's commuter-friendly location on Kew Gardens Road just minutes from the E and the F subway lines, the Long Island Railroad and the Grand Central, Van Wyck and Jackie Robinson Parkway brings all that New York City has to offer close to home."
