Co-founder and head of growth of full-service real estate business Dynamic Star, Brad Zackson, is adamant that small enterprises are the foundation of the US economy. The SBA estimates that there are approximately 32.5 million micro-enterprises in the US, representing 99.9% of all enterprises and 62% of the total increase in employment growth between 1995 and 2020. They are essential for the local communities’ social and economic well-being as well. They act as meeting places and provide chances for interaction (and employment), as well as the general identity of the community.
Among the most fascinating areas in New York’s Outer Neighbourhoods, Long Island City is the site of Dynamic Star’s “Opus Point” development.
Opus Point, the first office tower in LIC to get WELL accredited
The WELL Building Standard® was used to construct Opus Point, the safest complex in Long Island City and can be found at 23-10 Queens Avenue South. The WELL Building Benchmark is a performance-based technique for estimating, evaluating, and tracking built-environment elements influencing mental livelihoods and well-being via air, water, sustenance, light, athleticism, pleasure, and mind.
In 2019, Dynamic Star bought the property. They are now looking for permissions under the ULURP to build a modern, 27-story office skyscraper where the 1920s-era Long Island City electronic device manufacturer Eagle Electric Production Co. formerly stood. To spur the establishment of a central financial district, NYC rezoned the region in 2001. This was a similar move to the one that the city made to transform Times Square into a bustling public place and the hub of Manhattan’s economy.
Opus Point represents the neighbourhood’s long-term development from such an industrial region to a popular place where individuals can reside, work, develop, and play.
Putting Money Into Your Community
Dynamic Star intends to draw in and utilise the reservoir of distinctive local talent among the neighbourhood’s teenagers, working professionals, and artisans to fill the commercial store. Brad thinks that supporting local talent enriches the neighbourhood and promotes economic development. Opus Point would try to serve as a gathering place for the suburbs.
Currently, there will be an organic supermarket, restaurant, coffee, and even an Eagle Electric exhibition among the retail tenants.
As for accessibility, Opus Point would be close to transit. Its transportation location is suitable for today’s mixed labour and commuters and renters looking for employment in the outlying areas nearer to where they reside. The building is situated in Queens Plaza and is flanked by seven subways that serve four stops. Because Opus Point would be near the base of the new Queensboro Bridge walking route, businesses at the tower will enjoy a lot of pedestrian traffic. Also, it takes just five minutes to go to midtown Manhattan.
