Over the past decade, roughly 11,000 rental and condo units have sprouted up in Long Island City, with another 22,000 apartments on the way. As a result of this residential boom, demand for office space is on the rise — and developers want in on the action.

Tishman Speyer is developing a 1.1 million-square-foot office project, which features two 27-story towers and a four-story retail building. It has already pre-leased more than 800,000 square feet. And that’s not the only office project planned for the Queens neighborhood.

Watch the video above for the full story and to see a list of six office projects in the pipeline for Long Island City.
