A large 8-story building that spans half a block on Queens Boulevard in Long Island City has been sold for more than $60 million, according to Queens Post sources.

Mana Products, a major cosmetics manufacturer, has sold its 32-02 Queens Blvd. property for $61 million to Related Fund Management, a Manhattan-based real estate investment firm.

The real estate company is affiliated with Related Companies, which is the developer behind Hunter’s Point South Commons in Long Island City as well as Hudson Yards in Manhattan.

It is unclear what Related’s plans are for the 340,000-square foot building, which is known as The Packard Motor Building.

The Queens Post reached out to Related, but its representatives declined to comment. Meanwhile, Cushman & Wakefield, the brokerage firm that arranged the sale, also chose not to comment.

The building was constructed in 1931 and is situated between Van Dam Street and 32nd Place and takes up the northern half of the block. Mana had owned the property since the 1970s and still partially occupies it today.

Mana currently occupies the top half of the building, with the remaining floors leased to an array of commercial tenants.

The cosmetics company, which has another facility in Long Island City, is likely to shift its entire operation to 27-11 49th Ave. in Hunters Point.

Since 2019, Mana has been looking to move its operations to the 49th Avenue building. The company uses the 49th Avenue site to assemble, package and warehouse its goods.

The products are currently manufactured at the Queens Boulevard site and then transported to the 49th Avenue facility.

The Queens Post reached out to Mana Products for comment but has yet to receive a response.

Queens Public Library hosts conversation with Astoria author on borough history

Borough history geeks will want to mark Tuesday, April 4, on their calendars for the Queens Public Library’s Queens Memory Project online talk with Astoria author Rebecca Bratspies. The processor at CUNY Law in Long Island City will discuss her new book, “Naming Gotham: The Villains, Rogues and Heroes Behind New York’s Place Names,” and take a deep dive into the lives of the people for whom many Queens places are named, some of which have become synonymous with congestion, recreation or culture.

“Queens is the most diverse place on the planet. That diversity is our greatest strength. Our patchwork of unique neighborhoods has welcomed successive waves of immigrants, each adding incredible foods and traditions to our vibrant civic life,” Bratspies said. “Yet it is striking how few of the names that grace Queens’ major infrastructure actually reflect that diversity. By tracing the lives of the people whose names have become New York’s urban shorthand for congestion, recreation, and infrastructure, Naming Gotham offers readers an accessible way to understand the complexity of multiracial, multicultural New York City.”
