Long Island City Boomtown

Retail giant Bloomingdales’ has announced plans to open new locations in the Queens Plaza area.

Bloomingdales’ announced last year that it would relocate 1,000 jobs to Tishman Speyer’s Jacx development site at 28-01 Jackson Avenue by mid-year, real estate experts said.

Meanwhile, international office space giant, WeWork, last week opened 15,000-square-feet of space over two floors at the Brewster Building at 27-01 Queens Plaza North, featuring open work spaces, hi-tech conference rooms, common spaces and soundproof phone booths.

Approximately 80 firms have signed-on to utilize the space for a variety of functions, from professional workshops and social events, to cheese tasting events, a company spokesperson said.

Prices vary from $350 to $20,000 for use of the site, depending on the number of participants and length of event.

Both the Bloomimngdales and WeWork facilities are located at the center of the Queens Plaza transportation hub, with immediate access to MTA subways and buses, the Queensborough Bridge and Queens Boulevard.

WeWorks has also announced plans to open a center at Tishman Speyer’s 26-story tower, currently under construction at 28-07 Jackson Avenue.

The Bloomingdales’ and WeWorks sites are both located at the center of the Queens Plaza transportation hub, with immediate access to MTA subways and buses, the Queensborough Bridge, Northern and Queens Boulevards.
