We hadn’t heard much news on The Aston, the luxury condo development under construction in Forest Hills, but yesterday DNAinfo provided an update. The 17-story building, still under construction at 108-11 Queens Boulevard, should be ready for sales in September. Then construction is expected to wrap in October; the developer hopes to start moving people in this year. While the developer originally planned 100 one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, ranging from 800 to 1,200 square feet, there will now be three bedrooms available, too. Due to lots of demand from prospective buyers, the 97-unit building will hold around six three-bedroom condos. There’s no word on pricing yet.

The development will also have its own gym and rooftop garden. A CVS pharmacy will open on the ground floor in August.

Forest Hills development The Aston, on Queens Boulevard between Continental Avenue and 71st Road, is rising quickly. This tower will reach 16 stories and come with a very glassy facade. (Morali Architects previously described the design as “The Great Gatsby comes to Queens again in a modern version.”) At the end of the day, this tower will hold 100 one- and two-bedroom condo units, priced between $600,000 and $750,000. A CVS pharmacy will lease the ground floor retail space, and a garden will go up on the rooftop. Construction started over the summer and it should finish by June of 2014.
