Renovation Work Begins on Jackson Heights’ Heritage Tower

82-11 37th Ave – Heritage Tower

Nov. 7, 2019 By Shane O’Brien 

Jackson Heights’ tallest building is getting a face-lift.

The Heritage Tower, a nine-story office building located at 82-11 37th Ave. is undergoing $4 million worth of renovations and upgrades over the next few months. Renovation work is expected to be completed by early 2020.

RockFarmer Properties, which bought the building in 2018 for $55.9 million, wants to re-position and re-brand the tower.

Plans for the newly renamed Heritage Tower include a complete renovation and upgrade of the building’s common areas, lobby and three-story atrium. The revamped lobby will feature imported large format Italian tiling, a new security desk and state of the art design elements including LED lighting and digital displays.

The upgrades also include plans for new elevator cabs and mechanicals as well as the installation of spaces for small businesses and entrepreneurs.

Built in 1998, the Heritage Tower is a 135,000 square foot property that consists of six stories of office space, ground floor retail, and two enclosed parking levels.

The aim of the revamp is to make sure that the Heritage Tower remains the most prominent building in Jackson Heights, according to John Petras, Managing Director of RockFarmer Properties.

“By re-branding the building and upgrading the common areas with the clean, contemporary aesthetic that today’s professional services and medical-related tenants are looking for, Heritage Tower will remain the premier, high-tech office destination in Jackson Heights.”
