Kaufman Arts District To See Condos!

The Marx – named as a tribute to the street where the Marx brothers filmed their first films – is under construction at 34-32 35th Street, reported The New York Times.


The seven story condominium will have 33 units, and will have starting prices at $600,000 to under $1 Million for one and two bedroom apartments, with one three-bedroom penthouse that has yet to have a price tag.


Designed by Fogarty Finger, it is a joint venture by both Kaufman Studios, and The Bronx based developer Procida Companies.


Eric Benain – founder of Modern Spaces – told The New York Times that bidding wars had already started, after three apartments were viewed by 42 people in a ‘soft opening’.


Some of the features which will be included in the new addition to the 24 block Kaufman Arts District will be rooftop terrace with gas grills, virtual doorman system, fitness room and bike room along with laundry and parking, reported The New York Times.

Among its neighbors will include the Museum of the Moving Image, Queens council on the arts and Frank Sinatra school of arts.


The area is a thriving mecca for the artists and actors alike which prompted the developers to consciously not put in any studio apartments, with Mario Procida (chief executive of Procida Companies) telling The New York Times that they wished to target young families or empty nesters.


The sizes for one bedrooms are between 675 to 714 square feet, and two-bedroom 971 to 975, according to The New York Times.
