The Real Deal New York

City renews, takes more space at Queens Atrium

The New York City Department of Design and Construction grabbed 15 more years at the Feil Organization’s Long Island City building at 30-30 Thomson Avenue, renewing with an extra 23,000 square feet on top the 210,000 the department currently occupies.

The building, known as Queens Atrium, was converted from an industrial building to office and showroom. The master plan for the conversion was handled by legendary architect I.M. Pei. CBRE opened a retail office in the building in 2009, as The Real Deal reported.

CBRE brokers John Reinertsen, Michael Lee, Doug Holowink, Rachna Desi-Jain, Sean Wilson, Keith Thompson and John Morrill represented the tenant, the New York Observer reported. Randall Briskin, vice president of leasing at the Feil Organization, represented the landlord in-house. [NYO]Mark Maurer
