While in LIC yesterday, we came across a building covered in plywood. It’s on the corner of Jackson Ave and 50th Street, at 10-37 Jackson Ave.
We learned that it’s going to be a new “eatery and bar” that serves burgers and has a subway theme. That makes sense, since the place is right on top of the Vernon-Jackson 7 train.
After a little poking around it looks like the place is going to be called Station LIC. Architect Gregory Okshteyn of Studios Go is involved somehow (DOB records indicate him as the owner/lease holder) and has posted a variety of images of the project to his Instagram and twitter feeds.
And it looks like this will be their branding/logo:
The paperwork indicates the demo/reno will cost around $88,000.
More on Gregory Okshteyn:
Okshteyn’s most notable built projects have included the Chelsea nightclub BED, DASH NYC with Kim & Kourtney Kardashian, Rita Hazan Salon at 720 5th Avenue, JAY-Z’s SC Enterprises HQ, JAY-Z’s Ace of Spades Showroom, Restaurant 42 Ritz-Carlton, Top Chef winner Harold Dieterle’s restaurants Perilla & Kin Shop, the Duggal Greenhouse at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Harvey Keitel’s Residence, Irina Shayk’s Residence, and most recently The Chester, the Gansevoort Meatpacking hot spot.
We’re pretty curious and are looking forward to seeing this place when it’s ready to go! Paperwork was filed at the start of this year, and Station LIC, LLC was only formed at the end of last September, so it may be a while before things are up and running. Also, they applied for their liquor license last summer. We’ll keep an eye on it.
