Abatement underway at 5 Court Square as Montessori Kids of LIC closes

Rat abatement is underway at 5 Court Square, the former home of ENC Market, Domino’s Pizza and Montessori Kids of LIC. The market closed back in late 2015 after a construction permit was filed to build an 11-story mixed use building will rise in its place pursuant to permits that were approved on Oct. 22.1 The new build will have 73 units with 57,914 square feet of residential space and 4,994 square feet of commercial space for a FAR of 7.97.

The last remaining holdout on the building, Montessori Kids of LIC, closed in August. “We have now ceased operations at 5 Court Square in LIC,” according to a statement on its website.​2 “We would like to thank all the parents and the LIC and surrounding communities for their support over the years.”

Signage appears for Luzzo’s Pizza at 42-60 Crescent Street

Signage has appeared for a new pizza restaurant located at The Factory House at 42-60 Crescent Street.

The eatery will be called “Luzzo’s, La Pizza Napoletana,” which is the same namesake as the restaurant located in the East Village, and will be run by Michele Iuliano.

The new pizza place is not to be confused with the owners of Levante at nearby Jackson Avenue, who are also the owners of Luzzo’s Brooklyn.

“We wish [Iuliano] luck,” Levante’s Tony D’Aiuto said of his former business partner in a statement to The Court Square Blog.

It occupies the southern retail space in the building. A dry cleaner opened on the northern retail space over the summer.1
