The amenities include on-site dry cleaner, coin-laundry, exercise room, hospitality room, sundeck, storage lockers and vending machines. Those services along with water, cable TV including in-house information, central heat, individual unit air conditioning, and telephone intercom with lobby door entry system require monthly assessments which range from $237 to $901.

According to a listing agent the building reserves are running at $500,000 and mentioned that although the condo association is not partial to significant special assessment fees they did have one a few years ago. It’s a nice building. Some of the recent completed projects include: elevator modernization, hallway air conditioning, replacement of the roof top sun deck, installation of a new boiler heating system, complete replacement of all the windows and lobby updating. The agent also went on to say that the monthly assessments might increase 2% every other year.
