The brokerage Colliers International Long Island was awarded the  “most ingenious deal of the year” honor at the annual awards dinner of the Association for a Better Long Island and the Commercial Industrial Brokers Society last week. Colliers earned the distinction for selling the former Pall Corp. building in Port Washington to Kiss Nail Products for $30 million. The building’s labs and office space had previously been a challenge to market, Newsday noted, but the brokerage closed the sale in part by getting sell Pall to agree to lease out 90,000 square feet of the  272,000-square-foot building. Colliers’ Gus Nuzzolese, Darren Leiderman, Jason Meietta and Ken Enos were behind the deal. Rechler Equity Partners was awarded best developer of the year for its $250 million mixed-use rental project in North Amityville. [Newsday]
