A partnership between Atlas Capital Group, Partners Group and Invesco has signed a 17,684-square-foot, 10-year lease with HALO Branded Solutions at The Factory, the 1.1-million-square-foot creative loft office building in Long Island City.
Set to occupy space on the sixth floor of the 10-story Factory, HALO is a prominent distributor of promotional products both in the United States and internationally. Move-in is scheduled by the end of the year.
“Following renovation of this 92-year old former Macy’s warehouse, The Factory has become a magnet for young millennials seeking cool collaborative workspace, accompanied by a myriad of sought-after amenities,” said NKF’s Brian Waterman, who represented ownership along with Howard J. Kesseler, Jordan A. Gosin and Alex Rosenblum.
Lee & Associates’ Kenneth Salzman, who represented HALO, said, “HALO considered relocating its regional New York office to Manhattan, yet Long Island City offered more,” thanks to The Factory’s “amenity-rich location.”
