LIC Clock Tower Designated Landmark

The historic clock-tower in Long Island City’s Queens Plaza has been designated a landmark by unanimous vote of the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC)

 The 14-story Art Deco structure built in 1927, was original used as the Bank of the Manhattan Company Building, and it was designed by Queens-born architect Morrell Smith. According to the LPC the building "represents a significant period of development in Long Island City".

Developer Property Markets Group, along with the Hakim Organization, plans to build a 915-foot tower—the tallest in the city outside of Manhattan—beside the Clock Tower.
