Hatch Life Sciences at 43-10 23rd Street

Long Island City, NY

    Project Overview

    Longfellow is partnering with Suffolk to convert a 7-story office building in Long Island City into a Class A laboratory.

    Following gut demolition, the first floor is being converted into a luxury amenity and office space, floors 2-6 will offer similar layouts, and floor seven will offer a double-height space with unique views and a full length large outdoor patio deck.
    Amenities include a cafe, library, social space, co-working space, conference rooms, kitchenettes, top of the line lighting fixtures, open office spaces, and sound proofing.

    The laboratory spaces are modular and functional with partitions and movable lab benches. The infrastructural system improvements to support the laboratory include acid waste, reverse osmosis, a chiller bank, two additional exhausts, exterior duct manifolds, new interior shafts, pH neutralization, chemical storage, new dedicated air units, and specialized lab plumbing. In addition, Hatch Life Sciences is pursuing LEED Silver certification.

    Suffolk is utilizing its proprietary VDC/BIM process, Plan + Control, to help our team leverage their knowledge to coordinate a full window replacement, column layouts, specialized infrastructure, and working with reduced timelines—all in a building that is nearly a century old.

    For now, Suffolk is fitting out floors 1-3 and white-boxing floors 4-7 so future tenants can fit out the spaces for their unique needs.
