Court Square Development Boom Continues, 175-Unit Building Planned


Feb. 9, 2016 By Jackie Strawbridge

Development plans are in gear at a 34,000-square-foot lot across from MoMA PS1, which sold for $43.5 million last year.

Plans were filed with the Department of Buildings Saturday for an 11-story, 175-unit development at 22-12 Jackson Ave. Adam America Real Estate purchased the property from Long Island City-based Plaxall last June.

According to property documents, the development is slated to include first floor retail and several tenant amenities.

A store, lobby and pool for tenants will occupy the first floor. There will be a children’s playroom and an exercise room on the second floor, and a recreation area on the roof.

There will also be parking for a total of 91 bikes across the first and second floors.

This property is not far from a planned 80-story tower that stands to become the tallest in Queens, at 23-15 44th Drive. It is also just down the avenue from the former 5Pointz site where developer Jerry Wolkoff’s two residential towers are slated to rise.

An Adam America receptionist said their representative would be unable to speak until Friday.

The public transportation is not able to handle existing residents. The utilities are over taxed. Who in charge of planning in NYC? Over development will destroy quality of life in LIC.
Stop these Mega Bldgs.


Keep building until LIC looks like Manhattan without the shopping. LIC has been over developed already. Enough is enough.
