The Rockrose Development Corporation is bringing luxury to Long Island City with the first building in a brand new residential complex that offers breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and a world full of unique amenities.

Rockrose is a real estate developer headquartered in Manhattan. It develops residential and commercial sites all over New York City, and covers every step of the development process. This includes not only ground-up planning, but also the locating, designing, construction and management of sites. Rockrose is involved from a project’s conception to the finished product, and also stays on to continue management of the finished project.

Rockrose’s latest project is a new residential complex in Court Square in Long Island City, which is sure to add more character to an area already brimming with culture.

“A lot of our construction activity right now is in Queens and Long Island City, and we’ve always been a pioneer of new neighborhoods,” said Paul Januszewski, Vice President of Planning and Government Relations. “For example, we were among the first to start building luxury buildings in the West Village, and we were also one of the first to start building residential buildings in Lower Manhattan. We own buildings in Battery Park City, The Archive in West Village, and we were also the first developers over on the waterfront in Long Island City. Right now we’re focused on Court Square.”

The first building in the new complex is called Linc LIC, a 42-story tower with 709 luxury apartments. Located at 43-10 Crescent Street, Linc LIC is within walking distance of seven subway lines, and also features views of the East River, the surrounding neighborhood, and the iconic New York City skyline.

Of the 709 available units, 174 are studios, 392 are one-bedroom, 120 are two-bedroom, and 23 are three-bedroom apartments. Many of the apartments have balconies, and the parking garage has 175 available spaces.

“This is an area of proven and untapped value,” said Justin Elghanayan, president of the Rockrose Development Corporation. “We are adding qualitatively and quantitatively to the vibrant core of the growing Long Island City residential community. These distinctive and attractive new homes will also offer exceptionally convenient access to Manhattan, literally a five-minute subway ride away.”

In addition to the residencies, Linc LIC also offers a fitness center, basketball and squash courts, tenant lounges, roof deck, a Wi-Fi lounge and screening room, residential park and a children’s playroom.

Linc LIC was designed by Avinash K. Malhorta Architects, with interiors by Moed de Armas Shannon. Rockrose Development Corp is headquartered at 666 5th Avenue in Manhattan, and for more information on Linc LIC visit
