New York, August 25, 2014 – Rockrose Development Corp. announced today that Linc LIC (www.LincLIC.com), the new, amenity-rich luxury residential rental tower in the heart of Court Square, Long Island City, is 100 percent leased. Occupancy of the 42-story, 709-unit building commenced last August.
Rockrose President Justin Elghanayan said, “We are thrilled to celebrate the rapid lease-up of Linc LIC, the first large-scale rental building in Court Square to reach full occupancy. The development of Linc LIC was a true test of the Court Square, Long Island City marketplace, and the project has been a tremendous success.”
He added, “Rockrose has again been an early pioneer in a new residential community, as we were in the far West Village, the Financial District, Battery Park City, the LIC waterfront and in Hudson Yards. With top-level design standards, amenity-rich offerings and a five-minute subway commute to Manhattan, it is easy to see why demand is so high now in Court Square. Long Island City has been discovered as one of the best places to live in New York City.”
Rockrose is continuing to grow with Long Island City, having recently started construction of an even larger 50-story mixed-use development at 43-25 Hunter Street. It will feature 19,400 square feet of ground floor retail, as well as 974 apartments. A third Rockrose project, a residential conversion and addition to the former Eagle Electric manufacturing site at 43-22 Queens Street, will be a 54-story tower with 783 apartments.
Located at 43-10 Crescent Street, the apartments at Linc LIC range from 450-square-foot studios to 1,400-square-foot three bedrooms.
Living space at Linc LIC was designed for both form and function, with oversized windows in the living areas, granite-clad kitchens, brushed stainless steel appliances and elegant baths. Many apartments have balconies, in-unit washer/dryers and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The Rockrose signature tower’s centerpiece is a duplex tenant lounge on the 31st floor which leads onto a landscaped roof deck with panoramic Manhattan skyline views. Linc LIC’s “over-the-top” outdoor amenities include a Great Lawn for sunbathing, misting sprays, BBQ grills and a full outdoor kitchen for tenant gatherings. A separate outdoor Resident Parc for reading, meditation and getting in touch with nature is also available on the third floor.
Other building amenities include basketball and squash courts, a children’s playroom, an elegantly furnished screening room and a bi-level, 5,650-square-foot fitness center with next generation Cybex machines, treadmills, Stairmasters and stationary cycles – most with mounted audio/visual screens. On-site parking, a bike room and tenant storage rooms are also available at the pet-friendly Linc LIC.
Court Square is quickly establishing itself as a residential, retail, cultural and commercial hub, with seven subway lines located within a three-block radius of Linc LIC. Some of New York City’s most notable restaurants and bars are right in the area. The complex is across from M. Wells Steakhouse and the outdoor sculpture and arts space known as “The Lot,” and within walking distance of LIC Market, Sage General Store and Dutch Kills Bar.
Linc LIC is designed by Avinash K. Malhorta Architects, with interiors by Moed de Armas & Shannon. The landscape architect is Mathews Nielson.
