C.J. Hughes at The New York Times reports on The Alexander:
Sites that New York’s luxury residential developers once shunned but now seem eager to embrace are numerous: in office districts, across from public housing complexes or along industrial waterfronts. And now a spot by a major highway can be added to the mix.
In the latest what-will-they-think-of-next effort, a development team has constructed a high-end rental tower in Rego Park, Queens, at the edge of the roaring Long Island Expressway.
Called the Alexander at Rego Center, the tower, which was developed by Vornado Realty Trust in partnership with Alexander’s, a department store chain turned real estate company, rises from a large and busy mall, Rego Center, at Junction Boulevard and 62nd Drive.
In a tight market, in a burgeoning corner of Queens, few brokers believe the Alexander’s setting will hurt the project.
