Tishman Speyer Hosts Government, Union and Civic Leaders for Topping Out of Gotham Center Tower in Long Island City
Date:2/24/2010

Department of Health Will Move Significant Portion of Staff into New Office Complex

(PRWEB) February 24, 2010 -- Tishman Speyer President and Co-CEO Rob Speyer welcomed Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, Deputy Mayor for Economic Development Robert C. Lieber and Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Linda Gibbs and a host of Queens and citywide government, labor, civic and business leaders today for a ceremony celebrating the "topping out" of Two Gotham Center, a 21-story mixed use tower in Long Island City.

Other notable participants in the ceremony included New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley, New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) President Seth Pinsky and New York City Building & Construction Trades Council President Gary LaBarbera. During the ceremony, members of Ironworkers Local 361 raised the final beam of steel, which was signed by construction workers and dignitaries in attendance, to a height of 325 feet.

The office portion of the 662,000 square-foot, Class A office tower, which is being developed by Tishman Speyer on the corner of Queens Plaza and 28th Street, will be occupied by the New York City Department of Health (DOH). Once the tower is completed in early 2011, the DOH will begin relocating staff members from many of its 15 Manhattan locations.

The $316 million project, which replaces the Queens Plaza Municipal Parking Garage, also will include approximately 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 160 parking spaces. The tower is the first phase of the proposed 3.5-million-square-foot Gotham Center development. This initial stage is responsible for the creation of about 1,400 construction jobs.
