Dock Studios has inked an 18,000-square-foot lease at 349 Scholes Street in East Williamsburg, a deal that doubles the studio’s square footage in the area.

The property spent 90 years as a fur manufacturing facility for the company Meisel-Peskin, which still owns the building and recently renovated it. Vincent Lopez and Jacques Wadler of Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates represented both sides in the deal, according to the firm.

The lease is for 15 years, and asking rent was $25 per square foot.

Dock Studios provides workspace for artists and will occupy the entire three-story building. They also have nearby locations at 1006 Metropolitan Avenue and 1027 Grand Street.

Other recent large leases in Brooklyn include a 14,228-square-foot lease that Alo Yoga signed at 241 Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg and a 21,000-square-foot lease that Time Out Market New York signed for 53-83 Water Street in Dumbo.
