Extra! Extra!

Mitchell’sNY, the company that delivers publications like The Real Deal and the New York Times, is doubling the size of its office space in Long Island City.

The 70-year-old family-run firm signed a lease for 80,000 square feet at 31-10 48th Avenue, a warehouse owned by the Capitol Distributors Corporation.

“This sets us up for our anticipated growth over the next 10 years,” Mitchell Newman wrote in an email.

The warehouse, which sits right behind Jamestown’s Falchi Building, has five exterior loading docks and sits next to the Long Island Expressway, offering easy access into Manhattan.

The company is relocating from 40,000 square feet at 47-11 Austell Place, which a joint venture between Normandy Real Estate Partners, Drake Street Partners and GEM Realty Capital bought last year for $35 million.

Mitchell’sNY also delivers publications like Newsday and Variety as well as small food items to homes, offices and hotels.
