The 44-story Alta Building is one of many skyscrapers to emerge in Long Island City in recent years, many of which are still under construction.
Floors 2 through 16 of the building are managed by Common, a company that operates co-living apartments in nine cities across the United States.
According to the company, we toured the facility to confirm the appeal of the unique condominium, which has an occupancy rate of 95%, and the appeal of co-living.
The $80 monthly fee covers household items such as paper towels, toilet paper and sponges.
2 of the 3 bedrooms are about the same size, but the first bedroom had space for a small desk.
The heart of the microsuite is a modular Murphy bed that folds out of the wall.
In the second room, I tried removing the pillows from the sofa and setting up the bed. With some struggle, I was able to pull the bed out manually, so I put it on top of the futon and locked it in place.
A small headboard appears at the end of the bed, closest to the window.
Closet space was minimal in the smallest of the three bedrooms.
But the largest and most expensive bedroom had two spacious closets and multiple shelves.
By comparison, the estimated rent for a room in a three-bed apartment in the neighborhood was $2,484 in November, according to Zillow.
