Lefrak City Residential Pool

Flushing, NY


In 2017, Lefrak City completed a $70 million renovation which began in 2012 and includes substantial infrastructure and amenity upgrades to the mega-development. This signifies a new generation for LeFrak City as the community and surrounding area continue to thrive.

LeFrak City consists of twenty 16-story residential buildings that house approximately 15,000 residents in 4,600 units. The buildings are named after global cities and countries as a homage to the 1964 World’s Fair in Queens.

Project Amenities

The large-scale renovation includes improvements to building lobbies and corridors, green initiatives including solar panels for energy conservation, brand-new parking decks and lighting, apartment upgrades, as well as infrastructure work to the building’s facades, roofs, and boilers.

Extensive landscaping revitalized the community’s courtyards and grounds, with a major revamp of the shared outdoor amenities and recreational facilities, including a new 3,600 sq. ft., resident-only pool (replacing the original pool which exhibited maintenance issues and had outlived its expected life), as well as a splash pad, a soccer field, tennis court, basketball court, putting green, ping pong and foosball tables, picnic areas, and playgrounds.

The facility also includes a branch of the Queens Borough Public Library a post office, two large office buildings, shops, and over 3,500 parking spaces.
