A special thank you to all who ventured out on a rainy Friday night to celebrate the launch of the 12th Street outdoor pedestrian plaza space. Over the course of 3 hours, we had nearly 500 LIC community members enjoy cookies from Cookie Crumz and ice cream from Van Leeuwen. Our friends at ICONYC Brewing kept us well hydrated and fed with a pizza pop-up by Tufino Pizzaria.

 

We are especially honored to have worked alongside the DOT and CB2 to help make this dream for 12th Street a reality, and we look forward to many great community events to come.

Thank you to all of our friends and Long Island City neighbors who were able to attend Transmogrification.

JUNE 2017

We are excited to announce the upcoming art show: Transmogrification - which we are hosting at Jackson Square. We would like to invite you to attend the opening on Wednesday, June 21st, from 6:30 to 9:30pm. If you can’t make it, the show is open during select times for viewing until Saturday, July 8th. We would love to see you on opening night. Here is a brief description of the event:

L.I.C. has gone from a forgotten industrial neighborhood to what now feels like an extension of Manhattan across the water.  The metamorphosis that Long Island City has undergone, whether you believe it is for the better or worse, is nothing short of astounding.  Our show celebrates the theme of change and we have given it the name of: "Transmogrification".  With 40+ works from 26 artists of incredible talent, we believe we have lived up to the big name.

You can preview many (but not all!) of the works that will be on display and show details here: TransmogrificationWebPage  and here: TranmogrificationFacebookEvent

APRIL 2017

VOREA has acquired an existing two story industrial warehouse at 1201 44th Ave in LIC! LIC’s rapid residential growth, has clearly created a demand for more office, retail, community facility and industrial users. The building has great bones, exceptional light and air, and is very accessible both to major thoroughfares and also to LIC’s multiple subway lines. The planned renovation is going to fit into not only the fabric of LIC’s IBZ, but also LIC’s Court Square and Queens Plaza market as a whole.

 

This property adds to the growing number of VOREA developments in Western Queens.
