The Pearson Court Square represents a 15-story building with 197 market-rate rental apartments in over 171,000 square feet. Located in flourishing Long Island City, the successful development helped to advance 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 New York 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 achieved LEED® Silver certification. It also complies with New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s Multifamily Performance Program. Lastly, and most notably, the building features three vertical axis wind turbines on the roof. The turbines span over 20 feet in height and generate power to help 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. Nearby Jackson Avenue has revitalized further with new restaurants and wine shops opening.

The Pearson Court Square is a unique Long Island City imprint: classic and contemporary. urban and modern, while providing amenities and comfort, open spaces against the cinematic backdrop of the New York City skyline.
