Newmark Knight Frank Arranges Sale of Development Site in Long Island City

Property Sale Includes MTA and Condo Development Plan Approvals

New York, NY (12/18/2019)

10:00 AM

Global commercial real estate advisory firm Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) today announced it has arranged the sale of 1064-1066 Jackson Avenue, a property primed for development with 25,236 buildable square feet in Long Island City. NKF's Executive Managing Director Ron Solarz and Associate Jonny Yuran represented the property's owner and procured the buyer - a local condo developer - in this $8 million sale.

1064-1066 Jackson Avenue is a vacant corner site in the Court Square section of Long Island City, Queens, ideally located near LIRR stations and atop the MTA's 7 subway line. The property's sale included MTA-approval, as well as approved plans for a seven-story condo project with ground-floor retail.

"The Court Square section of Long Island City has become a very popular location for condo developers and condo buyers alike because the end product is so attractively priced," said Solarz. "Both development and demand have surged in the area given the location's proximity to Midtown Manhattan."

Total sales volume in New York City has increased 8.3% year-over-year to $10.1 billion. For Queens specifically, the current cycle's sales volume across all property types in Queens was $4.4 billion, a year-over-year growth rate of 32.3% - the second highest increase of the boroughs.
