The Federal Emergency Management Agency has inked a 200,000-square-foot lease at Forest Hills Tower in Queens for its New York City headquarters, according to a release from Muss Development, the landlord of the property. The lease encompasses 10 full floors that will be used by FEMA for administrative office space.

The lease spans the next several months, as the area recovers from the devastation left by Hurricane Sandy, and has options for short-term extensions. The financial terms of the deal were not mentioned.

Muss Principal Jason Muss said that FEMA’s lease will not impact ongoing lease discussions with other interested tenants.

Located at 118-35 Queens Boulevard, the office space is a relatively easy commute to the five boroughs, Long Island, Connecticut and Westchester.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s Ken Siegel represented the landlord — CBRE Group’s Mark Greenspan represented the General Services Administration, who was present on behalf of FEMA. — Zachary Kussin
