ABS Partners Real Estate is in the Bronx for the long haul.

At the latter address, ABS plans 15,000 square feet of co-working space. The total square footage of the two buildings is 150,000 square feet.

The agreement requires ABS to pay a total of $175 million over the life of of the lease, with payments over the first five years averaging $1.4 million. The landowner, MJ Martin & Son, sought to maintain a steady income from a lease deal instead of selling the buildings.

Cushman & Wakefield represented MJ Martin & Son on the deal.

Current tenants of the buildings include medical offices, a charter school and the New York City School Construction Authority. ABS said it will spend $3.5 million on renovations. [CO]Will Parker
