To say that Court Square in Central LIC is booming is an understatement. Located within a few of blocks of six different subway lines, the sub-neighborhood has seen an explosion of new residential buildings in recent years within a stone’s throw of the Citibank tower that’s long defined the area. There are several new buildings currently going up on Jackson Avenue and Purves Street but they are dwarfed by Queens’ latest luxury tower, Linc LIC. The Rockrose-developed project has 709 units over 42 floors. We got a look inside the amenity-rich development last week and have the photos below to prove it: Basketball court, large sunny gym, screening room, squash court, roofdeck with views and bar and grill, and children’s playroom. The building, which is already about 33 percent leased, features studios ranging from $2,155 to $2,450, one-bedrooms from $2,595 to $3,600, two bedrooms from $3,505 to $4,000 and three-bedrooms from $4,755 to $5,500. And residents won’t go hungry either, as the developers were smart enough to lease a one-story taxpayer across the street to the M. Wells Steakhouse. Rockrose is also developing a 974-unit building right now at 43-25 Hunter Street and has plans to convert the nearby Eagle Lofts into apartments in the near future.

Tons of interior photos, after the jump.

When we checked in on the facade of 4610 Center Boulevard, the fifth glassy LIC tower from TF Cornerstone, back in late June, windows had just started to go in on the small street-side section of the building. When we went by this past weekend, about half of the main building was sheathed in the shiny stuff. Extrapolating, we’d guess that the entire 585-unit structure should be covered up sometime in October.

The small buildings at the southeast corner of 28th Street and Astoria Boulevard were approved for demolition back in 2011 but since then there’s been no signs from the developer about what’s going to rise in their place. Any readers know anything about the plans for this site? GMAP

Qside Federal Credit Union will be opening its new headquarters at 211-31 Jamaica Avenue in Queens Village on Monday in a beautiful old bank building that had more recently been used as a law office. The financial company purchased the 40-by-100-foot site in 2011 for $875,713. “The exterior renovations we began in 2012 have really sparked an interest from the community,” said CEO Mark Johnson. “Many long-term residents have been asking about the project, as it’s positioned on the highly-visible corner of Jamaica Avenue and Hollis Court Boulevard, and they appreciate Qside FCU making a positive contribution to the aesthetic of the Jamaica Avenue commercial district.” Qside will shutter its existing location in Flushing as part of the move.

Remember the building we said was so bad it was good? Well, it’s for sale now with Shabbir Realty. The property hasn’t made it onto the realtor’s website but we called the numbers on the sign and found out the asking price: $599,000. According to Property Shark, the building, which at one point housed the Sunnyside Grocery on the ground floor, the existing structure is built to 3,800 square feet. We also took at look at the DOB records for this address and were interested to see that there wasn’t anything on file. GMAP

Attention, Open House shoppers. This large two-family house at 35-30 164th Street in Flushing is opening its doors tomorrow from 2 to 4 pm. This yellow fellow sits on a massive (as in 60 by 100 feet) lot just one block from the LIRR station; it’s also got a two-car garage. The aesthetics of the house are a little meh, but it’s a lot of house and looks to be in reasonable shape. The asking price of $1,288,000 doesn’t have as many 8’s in it as Wednesday’s LOTD but we’re sensing a theme here.
