Juice Press, a health-food chain that sells organic cold press juices and smoothies, will be moving its production facility to Long Island City later this month.

The company is about to move into the Falchi Building, located at 31-00 47th Ave, where it will have a large juice-making plant and retail store. The company, which has more than 20 stores throughout New York, will occupy about 18,000 square feet of first-floor space.

The juice maker is the latest food-related tenant to open in to the Falchi Building, which is owned by Jamestown Properties, known best for the Chelsea Market . In the past six months, a small ethnic food court (The Food Box) has opened, while an artisanal cheese company is developing office/production space and a gelato company is building a factory.

Juice Press’ retail store will occupy about 1,000 square feet and it will sell cleansing juices, smoothies and cold brew coffees. It will also sell raw vegan foods like chia seed pudding.

“There is a need for a [retail] store like ours in Long Island City,” said Marcus Antebi, the chief executive and founder of Juice Press. “That’s why we are opening at the Falchi Building.”

The company plans on supplying all of its stores with produce made at this location.

“The building is also an ideal place as a production and distribution center,” Antebi said. “The ground floor space includes access to a loading dock, which will make it easier to deliver produce,” he said, adding that “the building is clean, ideal for food production.”

Not at ALL far from residential areas! It is a 5 minute walk from my condo, and I am stoked. LIC desperately needs a great juice shop. I am stoked. No more trekking into Manhattan for a little bit of organic juice! Answer to my prayers. xoxo
