The Powerhouse at 2-17 51St Avenue Building Details
Standing proudly at 50-09 2nd Street in Long Island City, Queens, The Powerhouse offers a unique blend of historic charm and modern luxury. Originally constructed in 1890 as a coal-fired power plant generating electricity for the Long Island and Pennsylvania Railroads, the building served as a vital part of the city's infrastructure for decades. In the late 20th century, visionary architect Karl Fisher and renowned designer Andres Escobar embarked on a transformative project. The industrial behemoth was meticulously converted into a collection of luxury condominiums, preserving its architectural heritage while incorporating modern amenities and design elements. Today, The Powerhouse stands as a testament to adaptive reuse and offers residents a captivating home environment.

The building is equipped with an array of amenities that cater to the diverse needs of its residents, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, a common lounge area ideal for social gatherings, and a rooftop deck that offers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline. Additionally, an on-site parking garage adds an extra layer of convenience. Strategically positioned in one of New York City's most burgeoning areas, 50-09 2nd Street benefits from its proximity to a variety of public transportation options. The nearby 7 train at the Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue station offers quick and easy access to Midtown Manhattan, making it an excellent choice for commuters. Residents also enjoy the close vicinity to several cultural and recreational attractions, including the waterfront Gantry Plaza State Park, which provides beautiful park spaces and art installations against a backdrop of the city skyline.

The neighborhood itself is known for its vibrant arts scene, with numerous galleries and artists' studios contributing to a dynamic cultural environment. Additionally, Long Island City is home to a growing number of shops, cafes, and restaurants, offering residents a taste of urban chic lifestyle while maintaining a sense of community.
