New life for Apple building

From the Daily News:

Score one more for Long Island City and its transformation from gritty factory town into a live, work and play neighborhood.

A long vacant building at 30-30 Northern Blvd., now just a concrete shell, will become a seven-story commercial complex by this time next year, according to the project’s developer.

And a university campus could also be there in five years.

Alma Realty has begun gutting the building and plans to add two stories and complete a new 270,000-square-foot structure by early 2013. Plans also call for a rooftop terrace and for the building to be Gold LEED-certified, a coveted badge of eco-friendliness.

Alma will soon be looking for tenants — especially tech firms — to occupy the building, which a decade ago housed a topless dance club.

Just what the area needs - more congestion without infrastructure.
