“The Flushing market is already among the strongest in the five boroughs where home sales prices have shot up more than 40% in the last five years and residents can only expect greater maturation in values as a local skyline emerges throughout the next decade,” said Corbin

Shirokia Tower is one of the tallest buildings in the area with higher floor units having unobstructed views of the Manhattan and developing Flushing skylines. 

“Downtown Flushing is the largest urban center in Queens, with its bustling Chinatown second in size to Manhattan’s, although wealthier than its Manhattan Chinatown counterpart,” said Jauregui. “The sale price exceeded all expectations.”
