There’s a housing boom in the Court Square area of Long Island City, but many residents are also noticing a scarcity in amenities like supermarkets, pharmacies and other kinds of shops (except pet stores, of course).
Rockrose Development is in the midst of developing a few more residential high rises, but with that a promise of more retail shops.
The first will be a high-end 15,000-square-foot supermarket, to be built on the first floor of a planned 42-story residential tower called Linc LIC, at 43-10 Crescent St. The building’s 709 luxury apartments are slated to open this spring, with the supermarket to follow after.
In addition, the company purchased a row of buildings along Jackson Avenue — located behind the site of another one of its residential projects, a 975-unit building planned for 43-25 Hunter St. — which are being reserved for retail tenants.
