Ocean Grande Opens Doors To New Owners
Assemblywoman Audrey Pheffer, City Councilman Joseph Addabbo, Jr., Steven Krieger, a principal with the buildings developers, the Engel-Burman Group, with Joanie Omeste, the executive director of the Rockaway Chamber of Commerce at the grand opening. "When we first looked at this property, we drove up and down Beach 116 Street and saw a melting pot of America," Krieger told reporters. "We are pioneers in the Rockaway Park area and we love it. We think it is a great area." The luxury condo that will anchor the southern end of Beach 116 Street opened its doors last week with a reported 80 percent of its 92 units already sold, many to longtime Rockaway residents. Prices at the $42 million condo community range from $400,000 to $950,000. The Ocean Grande sits right on the boardwalk from Beach 116 to 117 Streets.
