Brooklyn’s Pioneer Building Adds D’Addario to Tenant Rister

Music accessories manufacturer J. D’Addario & Company  has signed a 10-year lease for 3,650 square feet of  prebuilt office space at the Pioneer Building, at 41 Flatbush Ave. in Downtown Brooklyn. Located in the BAM Cultural District, the mixed-use building has become a center for creative, entertainment, and cutting-edge technology companies. 
“D’Addario builds on recent lease successes over the last few months at the building,” said Tim Quinlan, managing principal of Quinlan Development Group, LLC, one of the property’s owners. “It is a testament to the many attributes of Pioneer and its desirability in the market. We are honored to welcome D’Addario as our newest tenant.” 
Representing ownership were Cushman & Wakefield’s Joe Cirone, Ron Lo Russo, Remy Liebersohn and Anthony Cugini. The tenant, which will relocate from its Crown Heights office in spring 2021, was represented by Jackson O’Neill and Chris Havens of TerraCRG.
