Condo Sales Launched at 30-05 Vernon Boulevard, Astoria, Queens

By Linecity, January 11, 2023

Sales have been launched at 30-05 Vernon Boulevard, a new luxury condominium in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens, New York.  The waterfront development is located on the western edge of Astoria between Welling Court and 30th Road just across from Hallets Cove Playground and the East River. 

30-05 Vernon Boulevard, aka The Marina, will rise 11 floors and contain 67 apartments.  Sales are being handled by Nest Seekers International.

The Marina is one of many recent residential projects along this waterfront stretch of Vernon Boulevard.  The five blocks between Main Avenue and Broadway, which includes Hallets Cove Playground, Hallet’s Cove Beach and Socrates Sculpture Park, have experienced a dramatic crossover from industrial to residential use.  The Pillar Astoria, a new rental building at 11-05 30th Road, adjoins The Marina.  The Astoria West, a second rental building two blocks to the south at 30-77 Vernon Boulevard, opened in 2022.

According to the offering plan, The Marina has a sell out just north of $55 million, the bulk of which is from the residential component.  Aside from the residential units, there are 40 deeded storage lockers for sale.

The building contains studio, one and two bedroom units. Most of the apartments along the building’s perimeter have full or partial river views.  Private outdoor space is also quite common.  

The open concept homes feature floor-to-ceiling windows, wide plank oak flooring, solid core doors, Nest controlled heating and cooling and washers/dryers.  The kitchens open to the living area and offer an eat-in peninsula, quartz countertops and backsplashes, custom soft-close cabinets and a suite of high-end integrated appliances.

Current pricing reflects studio units starting at $565,000, one-bedroom homes starting at $630,000 and two-bedroom residences starting at $1.15 million.  According to the offering plan, Penthouse 7-B is the highest priced unit in the building with an ask of $1.89 million.  The two bedroom residence totals 1,416 interior square feet and features a 135 square foot terrace.  

At the time of this writing, just 13 apartments have been released.  The average price per square foot of these units is $1,244.

The building is flush with amenities. Our favorite is the furnished rooftop deck with stunning views of the East River, Roosevelt Island and Manhattan.  Other amenities include on-site parking, a landscaped courtyard, fitness center, library, pet spa, co-working spaces, mediation room, children’s playroom, private storage and a bike room.

Wayne Fried is the developer behind The Marina while the architect is the Queens-based firm, Tan Architect.

The Astoria Ferry Terminal is located on the other side of Hallets Cove Playground just minutes away from your front door.  The ferry takes approximately 52 minutes to reach the Wall Street stop at Pier 11.  Additional stops include Long Island City, East 34th Street and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The Vernon Boulevard Q103 bus stops right in front of the building.

The Nest Seekers International team of Michael Bethoney, Michael DeSena and Linglong Li are representing the project.
