COURT SQUARE — Australian java chain Toby's Estate Coffee will open its first Queens outpost in Long Island City.
The small-batch coffee roasters signed a 10-year lease for a 1,000-square-foot storefront at 25-26 Jackson Ave., according to an announcement Monday from Lee & Associates NYC, the commercial realty firm that brokered the deal.
The company's Long Island City location will be in a converted townhouse with "soaring ceiling heights" and a backyard, according to the realtors.
"This part of Long Island City is experiencing a residential boom, and the retail and dining sectors need to catch up with it," Garry Steinberg, managing director of Lee & Associates NY said in a statement.
"The tenant is eager to change that by bringing its unique environment to Queens."
The firm did not yet have an opening date for the location. Toby's Estate did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
