With the weather heating up, New York real estate buyers thinking about a beautiful and affordable year-round oceanfront home for their families have a new option right in the heart of the Rockaways’ increasingly vibrant beachfront community. Residents of One Sixteen, an eight-story luxury complex with apartments on sale now, will be able to spend a summer on the shore without having to trek to the Jersey shore or the Hamptons, and at more affordable prices. During the entire year, they can easily get to Manhattan via the nearby subway or expanded NYC Ferry.
One Sixteen has 86 condominiums of varying size, including eight three-bedroom duplex townhouse residences with private outdoor space. The ground floor will feature 14,000 square feet of retail space. The beach lifestyle property in the heart of the Rockaways was developed by The Marcal Group and is being marketed and sold exclusively by Compass.
The Rockaways are known for their lively mix of boardwalks and beachside bungalow and have served as a popular summer retreat for New Yorkers since the 1800s. The area continues to attract a wide range of devotees from the city and beyond. While the neighborhood was historically quieter in the colder months, it now offers year-round activities, arts and cultural offerings and well-reviewed restaurants.
Available two bedrooms start at $610,000. There are two different three bed options: either eighth floor simplex layouts with water views or duplex residences in the adjacent “townhouse” portion of the building. Both of the three-bed options have private outdoor space. An example price: a three-bedroom with 1,431 interior square feet and over 250 square feet of outdoor space is available at $1.07mm.
