According to a recent study, 62% of respondents report that the pandemic has caused a shift in what they value in a home, and most are now looking for larger outdoor areas. Given this trend, take a look at NYC residential buildings in close proximity to parks that are now benefitting from the pandemic.
Just steps from Murray Park in Long Island City, Townhouse on The Park is a brand new, tech forward, luxury rental development offering 75 3-bedroom triplex apartments. Modern Spaces agent Andres Emilio Soto is exclusively handling marketing and leasing for the building, which includes suburb-worthy amenities like private outdoor space for almost every unit via a private garden or rooftop balcony; wellness amenities like in-unit MIRROR home gym systems; “bonus” rooms aka home office, nursery or gym; and ample space, with apartments ranging from 1,583-2,288 square feet (more than twice the size of the average NYC apartment).
A Sloan Kettering Registered Nurse, who currently lives in Astoria, purchased at 567 Ocean sight unseen due to her hectic schedule. The proximity to the iconic Prospect Park (less than half a mile away) was what heavily influenced her to move forward – she also plans to have a dog once she moves in, who she’ll be able to share the enjoyment of living by the park with. This represents an overall increase in activity in the mid-range condo market (specifically within the $500k to $1M range), as first-time homebuyers take advantage of low interest rates. MNS is the exclusive sales team for 567 Ocean.
Located in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen on 10th Avenue and 45th Street, Bloom on Forty Fifth is situated closely to both Hudson River Park and Central Park.

The condo building has seen strong interest thus far from buyers being attracted to both the public and private green spaces that Bloom offers.
