Enviro Testing Firm Relocates to LIC

Cushman & Wakefield arranged a long-term, 10,775-square-foot lease for EMSL Analytical at 10-39 45th Rd. in Long Island City. The environmental testing firm is relocating from 307 W. 38th St. in Manhattan. 

A Cushman & Wakefield team of Garett Varricchio and Joseph Grotto represented both EMSL and the landlord, Maxim Holding Company. 

“EMSL Analytical is the nation’s leading environmental testing firm focused on asbestos, microbiology, lead paint, environmental chemistry, indoor air quality, industrial hygiene and food testing,’ said Varricchio. “This unique asset was made-to-measure for EMSL’s 24/7 operation and is another positive sign for the burgeoning Long Island City market.” 

10-39 45th Rd. is a 60,000-square-foot manufacturing and office property. The space features ground floor offices with an exclusive loading dock. The property is situated five minutes from the Long Island Expressway, Midtown Tunnel, 59th Street Bridge and Greenpoint in Brooklyn, as well as multiple subway lines.
