After the recent announcement that Amazon will bring its new headquarters to the Long Island City area of Queens, some local officials have expressed concern over the details of the deal, but others strongly support the plan, including Assembly Member Catherine Nolan, who said that the move will make the area the most successful mixed-use neighborhood in the city. Investors and real estate brokers are unambiguously in favor of the deal, which has already boosted interest in the area and spurred a wave of new investment. Local real estate groups like Modern Spaces, which specializes in condos in LIC and Astoria, are poised to help usher in the next phase of Long Island City’s development.
