1930s Jamaica nightclub for sale
From Massey Knakal:
The building was formally the La Casina nightclub which opened in 1933 at the end of the Prohibition Era. The building, with its distinctive Streamlined Moderne style, was restored in 1994/1995 and became landmarked in early 1996. This property is one of only 68 individual landmarks in the entire borough of Queens, making it a truly unique prospect.
If landmarking is so bad, why do realtors use it as a selling point? And why would an organization like Greater Jamaica Development Corporation have pushed for the designation if landmarking actually hinders development as opponents always argue?
