Events Raw Space

One Court Square

Savanna’s One Court Square is the most prominent skyscraper in Long Island City, offering high-quality office space and tenant experience in a 51-story property with an iconic architectural presence.  Currently home to multiple Fortune 500 companies, the 1.5 million square foot building is located at the heart of Long Island City, with unmatched transit access and sweeping views of Manhattan. Situated directly above the Court Square Subway Station with direct, in-building subway access to the E, G, M and 7 lines as well as close proximity to the N, W, R and F lines, One Court Square provides seamless transportation to Manhattan in under 5 minutes.  Savanna is crafting a thoughtful and extensive capital improvement plan that will transform the 4-story annex at the base of the main tower into an inviting “town center” for Long Island City and also provide for a significant lobby renovation.

Event Summary

The Borough of Queens almost secured the biggest economic stimulus in its history from Amazon. Like other cities that Amazon has past on, Queens needs to re-evaluate what it offers to future residents, tenants and tourists.

Long Island City alone has substantial real estate development

in the pipeline. There is 466K SF of additional retail expected by 2021, on top of the

existing

488K SF of retail in mixed-use and renovated commercial properties. There are also 10,500 new units due by 2021 -- more than half

the 19,680 units built since 2006.

Will LIC and Queens

find major

companies who want to escape Manhattan?
