The Cigar Factory was designed to be a creative office space in LIC that offers modern office amenities — such as a secure bike storage and locker area and a private tenant courtyard — and allows tenants to have maximum control over their space. For example, our ready-to-move-in office suites offer open concept workspace layouts which can be built out based on tenants’ needs.
Long Island City (LIC) is an area rich with history. In fact, the very building that now houses creative studio space, The Cigar Factory, was once an actual cigar manufacturer in the 19th Century. Our goal behind renovating this historical building into LIC creative office space was to provide 21st Century service and amenities while still paying homage to the history behind the building and the surrounding area.
Long Island City, say hello to the neighborhood’s newest creative office space: The Cigar Factory. We wanted LIC’s newest creative office destination to pay homage to the history behind the four-story loft building — once an actual cigar factory in the 19th century — while still offering the best 21st-Century office experience that the area has to offer. The goal behind The Cigar Factory? To foster a creative work environment as well as a community.
