Linc LIC is bringing luxury living to residents of Long Island City.

Rockrose Development Corp., a family-owned and operated real estate company, gathered on November 25 with local elected officials, community leaders and residents to celebrate the official grand opening of the residential rental complex known as Linc LIC, located at 43-10 Crescent Street.

“Our goal is to enrich the vibrant core of the growing Long Island City residential community,” said Justin Elghanayan, president of Rockrose Development Corp. “I believe that Linc LIC, by virtue of its top-level design standards and its exceptionally convenient access to Manhattan, is one of the best places to live in all of New York City.”

The 42-story pet-friendly building features 709 apartments, ranging from 450-square-foot studios to 1,400-square-foot three bedrooms.

Linc LIC’s “signature centerpiece” is the 31st floor’s duplex lounge which opens onto a landscaped lawn with a view of the Manhattan skyline. The other rooftop amenities include barbecue grills, misting sprays, a gazebo, and a separate outdoor “Resident Parc” for reading and meditation.

The apartments feature oversized windows, granite-clad kitchens, stainless steel appliances and elegant baths. Most have balconies, in-unit washers and dryers, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

In addition, the luxury building features a second lounge and furnished screening room, each with full kitchens, a children’s playroom, on-site parking, a bike room, basketball and squash courts, and a 5,650-square-foot fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment. The retail space on the ground floor will also house a brand new Food Cellar supermarket.

Linc LIC was designed by Avinash K. Malhotra Architects, with interiors by Moed de Armas & Shannon, and exterior work from landscape architect Matthews Nielson.
