Himmel + Meringoff Properties announced the signing of two new leases totaling 20,000 s/f at 21-07 41st Avenue, the 127,000 s/f Long Island City office and warehouse building they acquired in 2017 now known as the Noodle Factory, a nod to its historic use.
Leslie Himmel, co-managing partner, commented, “We’re delighted to welcome these tenants to our newest property where plans are already underway to renovate the building with an upgraded façade, an exciting new entrance and lobby as well as all new building-wide systems. These updates will further enhance the appeal of 21-07 41st Avenue.
Jason Vacker, President & CEO added, “As we anticipated, the demand for high quality, well located and affordable flexible space in Long Island City has been really strong amidst the conversion of other warehouse properties into pricey office buildings and the booming new residential and hotel construction.”
The two new tenants, American Bridge Company and Futures Memories will share the second floor of 21-07 41st Avenue.
American Bridge, a national leader in civil engineering currently undertaking the restoration of the Mayor Ed Koch – 59th Street Bridge, will take 13,000 s/f while Futures Memories, manufacturer of novelty toys and games, signed on for 7,000 s/f.
The Noodle Factory is a six-story flexible office and warehouse property located at the F train subway station, eight minutes from midtown Manhattan and one stop from Cornell University’s new Technion applied sciences graduate school on Roosevelt Island.
The property’s only remaining vacancy is the 15,000 s/f ground floor unit, which includes two direct drive-in access points and an exterior loading dock.
Ted Spiegel of Spiegel Real Estate represented American Bridge Company, and Joe Eliasoff of Sholom & Zuckerbrot represented Future Memories in their respective lease deals.
Jason Vacker, President and CEO and David Cohen, Vice President of Leasing, represented ownership in-house.
