Newsday is moving its Long Island headquarters after its longtime home was bought by Hartz Mountain Industries.
JLL brokered a 128,446 s/f office deal for the newspaper at the We’re Group’s 6-8 Corporate Center Drive in Melville.
The multimedia organization signed a 15-year lease in a deal brokered for them by JLL’s Ray Ruiz and Doug Omstrom. The We’re Group was represented in-house.
“Newsday was looking for new headquarters space that would meet the current needs of the organization and its staff,” said Ruiz. “We were able for find an ideal opportunity for the company at 6-8 Corporate Center Drive. The buildings provided the right amount of office space within two very well-located, quality office buildings.”
Newsday will occupy the entire 6 Corporate Center Drive and the entire third floor at 8 Corporate Center Drive. The company is relocating to the property from 235 Pinelawn Road, also located in Melville. Hartz Mountain Industries, the Secaucus, NJ-based, bought that building from Tribune Media Co. for $54.5 million last fall. Hartz plans to raze the property and build two industrial buildings on the site.
