From the Daily News:
A former warehouse in Long Island City that’s owned by the developers of the Chelsea Market will be transformed into Queens version of the celebrated foodie paradise, the Daily News has learned.
Jamestown Properties is already bringing in artisanal food makers to occupy the ground floor of the Falchi Building on 47th Ave. near LaGuardia Community College.
“It’s the right type of image for the neighborhood,” said Dana Frankel of the Long Island City Partnership. “It aligns well with the neighborhood’s history and culture of creating things.”
One of the flagship tenants in the new market will be Artisanal Premium Cheese, which buys and sells curds from all over the world. The company will have a shop and a restaurant in the new market and will expand its aging caves.
About 20 full-time workers will be hired, too.
(Artisanal means it's going to be overpriced.)
