Estée Lauder Companies Inc. will move employees to a Long Island City location.

Employees from Estée Lauder Companies Inc.’s Long Island office will move to a building in Long Island City.

Information technology employees based at the company’s Melville office will move to a space at 27-01 Queens Plaza North, according to Newsday. Less than 10 percent of employees in Long Island will be asked to move, a spokesperson told the paper.

“Long Island City is a growing hub for startups, tech and digital companies, and our team will greatly benefit from being at the center of this fast-paced and vibrant environment,” Michael Smith, chief information officer, wrote in a memo obtained by Newsday.

The company owns multiple buildings in Melville, which are used for research and development, manufacturing, finance and a factory for fragrance and skin care product production. The Long Island City location is home to JetBlue and MetLife.

The neighborhood has managed to attract a number of large companies including Bloomingdale’s, Ralph Lauren and WeWork, a co-working space.

LIC Partnership was recently awarded a state grant to study how Long Island City could accommodate new companies in the life sciences and biotech industries. Mayor Bill de Blasio announced in 2016 that he would look to bring a life sciences campus to either Long Island City or Manhattan.

Estée Lauder Companies Inc. did not respond to requests for comment as of press time.
