It Began with
Plaxall founder Louis Pfohl always believed it was only a matter of time before Long Island City evolved from a manufacturing hub to a thriving mixed-use community. With his 46th Avenue factory up and running in the 1950s, he started to invest in local real estate and began the purchase and rehabilitation of nearby properties. In commitment to his firm belief in transformation of Long Island City,
Louis Pfohl purchased a five-story factory and, with the addition of another five stories and modern amenities, developed Hunters Point Plaza. It was one of the first modern office buildings on the south end of Jackson Avenue and, for a time, the tallest building in the neighborhood. The Plaxall real estate business continues to offer an array of attractive commercial spaces today.
