The Pearson Court Square
45-50 Pearson Street, Long Island City, NY
The Pearson Court Square represents a new 15-story building with 197 market-rate rental apartments in over 171,000 square feet. Located in flourishing Long Island City, the successful development advances the Court Square neighborhood by transforming a vacant lot into a vibrant residential community.
The Pearson Court Square is built in the style of a timeless warehouse, seamlessly blending the classic and the contemporary. It features a grand double-height lobby, a state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga studio, and laundry facility – all with outdoor access, bike storage, grocery storage, and a 24-car garage. The building features several outdoor amenities including basketball and bocce courts on the ground floor, a landscaped wrap-around garden terrace on the second floor, a sun deck terrace on the tenth floor, and a rooftop terrace and lounge. The residences are well appointed with 9-foot ceilings, oversized double-pane historical windows, wide-plank natural oak floors, and modern gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances.
Sustainability played a key role in the building’s design, allowing for a resourceful development that benefits residents as well as the environment. The Pearson Court Square achieved LEED Silver certification. It also complies with New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s Multifamily Performance Program. Lastly, and certainly most noticeable, the building features the installation of three vertical axis wind turbines on the roof. The turbines span over 20 feet in height and generate power to offset the building’s energy use.
Residents benefit from being centrally located, steps away from multiple subway lines, the MoMA P.S. 1 contemporary art museum, SculptureCenter, Court Square Park and the Long Island City Courthouse, and waterfront parks including Gantry Plaza State Park overlooking Manhattan. The nearby Jackson Avenue has also seen an increase in additional residential amenities including restaurants and wine shops.
The Pearson Court Square is a unique Long Island City imprint. Classic and contemporary. Urban and modern. It lavishes residents with amenities and provides comfort in the midst of wide open spaces with cinematic views of the New York City Skyline.
