From Anable Basin LIC:
The Plaxall family has invested in this neighborhood in its institutions since our company was founded more than 70 years ago, always with an eye toward retaining the character of the community as it evolved. We’ve done this for the same reason our grandfather, Louis Pfohl, first opened our doors along Anable Basin: we believed in the future of Long Island City as a center of productivity.
Now, we are proud to present a vision for our waterfront properties, one that revolves around its namesake: Anable Basin. From this long-overlooked inlet will flow a vibrant, mixed-use community – a home for longtime LIC residents as well as newcomers hoping for their own opportunity to call the neighborhood home. A workspace for light industrial tenants whom we envision will carry on this legacy of innovation. And a place that celebrates the public, street-level experience through access: to the waterfront through new pedestrian lanes lined with spaces for arts, culture and retail; and along the basin itself, via a public esplanade inspired by some of the great urban waterfronts.
