Maximilian sits on a former brownfields site in Long Island City, Queens — a neighborhood which embraces its historical commercial character — so it was only fitting to incorporate industrial elements into the modern luxury design concept. The studio, 1BR and 2BR units in this boutique residence cater to those seeking more intimate community living. Understated elegance meets warm industrial sophistication as you enter the resident lounge, with its billiards table and glass bookcases filled with vintage books, relics, and games to play by the fireplace. Handcrafted pieces reflect the neighborhood’s commercial history — from Westinghouse antique light fixtures and hand-blown torch lamps to industrial medicine cabinets and kitchen stools. The amenity package also includes a concierge, state-of-the-art fitness center, and a rooftop terrace with outdoor theater space plus grills and loungers for taking in the stunning Manhattan views.
