In a recent interview with Bisnow, RIPCO Managing Director Michelle Abramov and Vice President Greg Batista shared their perspective about their involvement with Tangram NYC, a 1.2M SF mixed-use development in Flushing, NY, co-developed by F&T GROUP and SCG America Group Inc. The “Live-Work-Play” concept includes a 275,000 SF retail component as well as residential, office and hotel.
“We loved the concept of Tangram. It was inspired by the traditional Chinese puzzle comprising flat pieces called tans. It’s obvious that the developer wanted to transform this site into a year-round lifestyle destination for the residents, the business community and tourists.
We’ve seen Flushing develop into a global market with the high growth of residents, jobs and businesses in the neighborhood over the past few years. Flushing has the highest number of businesses throughout the Queens borough. If Queens was its own city, it would be ranked the fourth-largest city in the nation, and Flushing contributes significantly to that ranking with its growing population.
Tangram isn’t your typical, outdated suburban mall. Tangram carries Flushing’s essence and expands on the neighborhood’s thriving, cultural aesthetic while providing an upscale and modern touch that would appeal to the lifestyle needs of not only young people but patrons of all ages. RIPCO has been active in the Flushing market for many years. We value our relationships both locally and nationally, and we’re excited to see what brings tenants to Tangram.”
