America Works, a company that helps move workers into the private sector, has just signed a 9,386-square-foot lease at Muss Development‘s 88-11 165th Street in Jamaica, Queens, the New York Observer reported. The company also recently opened a new 14,000-square-foot office at 44 Court Street in Brooklyn.

Joe McLaughin, founder and managing partner of Capstone Realty Advisors, with colleague Kevin Phelan, handled the deals.

“America Works only wanted to be located within a small grid in both Brooklyn and Queens that was centrally located [and] close to transportation,” McLaughlin said. “One of the driving factors for both locations is that the space needed to be built and ready for occupancy by January 1, 2013. Both landlords were able to negotiate quickly and had the resources needed in order to get the construction completed on time.”

The landlord was represented in-house by Muss Development‘s Stan Markowitz and Nick Forelli. The building is nearly fully leased with only approximately 3,100-square-feet left in the 10-story 170,000-square-foot Class A office tower. [NYO]Christopher Cameron
