ONE million square feet of office space is up for lease in the Citi Building in Court Square as Citigroup consolidates according to the New York Post. That’s a lot I think. In addition, YIMBY revealed that a 24-story spec1 office building containing 400k sq. ft. is coming to Queens Plaza South. Ahh, 24 stories, that’s a lot easier to comprehend spacially – but I’m glad they also supplied a picture. As for the Citi building, a million square feet is roughly 2/3 of the tower. Yeah, a lot.
In order to attract commercial tenant(s), the owner of the Citi building plans on transforming the 5-story retail “atrium” to [Read more…] about NEW FOOD HALLS AND LOTS OF COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE IN LIC
- as in speculative, as in being built on spec that they can fill it, as in they have no tenants currently lined up, as in it’s a total crapshoot, as in it must be getting built using OPM [↩]

DON’T let anyone tell you that incubation is bad/dirty/will make your child go blind. It’s not and is perfectly natural and normal. Now that we have that out of the way, we are happy to report that next year every child in LIC will be able to incubate in LIC. That’s because after much brainstorming and jawboning by an ardent group of local advocates, the DOE has decided to convert the large Pre-K center at 27-35 Jackson Avenue in Court Square into a new K-2 location called 30Q384 to incubate the brand new elementary school coming to 54th Avenue in Hunters Point. Therefore the lucky parents of the class of 2032 will have two local options as to where to send their kids for elementary school as opposed to all previous classes who were relegated to a sole choice.. That’s a 100% increase, and as every teacher knows 100 is perfect. In addition, it now gives parents in Court Square (of which there will soon be many more – see below) a much closer option than PS78Q. Finally, we hear that the trailer pre-school on 49th Avenue, which was slated for closure, will now remain open.

“The books are to remind us what asses and fool we are. They’re Caeser’s praetorian guard, whispering as the parade roars down the avenue, “Remember, Caeser, thou art mortal.”

Who says hard copy is dead? Not Rockrose. Who says retail is dead? Not Rockrose. Today at a Queens real estate event held by Bisnow, Rockrose SVP Patricia Dunphy announced that the developer will be leasing space to a book store in Court Square. While Patricia was coy as to which book store1, I’m going to make a few assumptions. The first is that it will be located in The Hayden, their new mega-tower on Jackson Avenue. Secondly it will open by the end of the year at the latest – because unlike a restaurant, the buildout should be fairly easy.
What other tidbits were shared at the Bisnow event? [Read more…] about BOOK STORE COMING TO COURT SQUARE
