Moments away from a small beach...
Welcome to Astoria West Moments away from the East River waterfront’s Cove beach in Queens, modern residences surround a lush landscaped courtyard where communal spaces for co-working, fun and exercise open onto the garden. Even more outdoor space awaits on the building’s roof, where a private resident pool club and deck provide areas for hosting BBQs and group gatherings, or sunset swimming and relaxing in cabanas – all while enjoying panoramic views of the river and the Manhattan skyline. Inside, Astoria West offers 534 studio, one- and two-bedroom homes catering to all lifestyles, and access to over 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities – one of the most expansive packages in NYC today.
Life by the river Few New Yorkers can say that they live next to a beach, especially one with the Manhattan skyline as an immediate backdrop. But Astoria West is uniquely positioned beside a small sandy inlet on the East River. Facing the water, the building’s architecture is carefully designed to harmonize with its context. Bricks chosen for their unique size and color clad the exterior, surrounding six-foot-tall windows that offer prime river or courtyard views. In harmony with Astoria, the relatively low-rise structures blend with the adjacent buildings in both size and materiality.
Astoria West comprises three main buildings, arranged around a private central courtyard where residents can enjoy the outdoors in a peaceful landscaped setting. The buildings connect at ground level via the lobby’s garden room, as well as an amenities corridor that opens onto the courtyard. These spaces are designed for engaging with the community, and spending time with family and friends, protected from the traffic and noise of the city.
Just to the south of Astoria West is Socrates Sculpture Park – a green haven on the Astoria waterfront where world-class art is displayed for all to appreciate. To the north, Astoria Park also sits adjacent to the river and offers hiking trails, tennis and basketball courts, a running track, and to top it off, New York City’s largest public swimming pool.
