Himmel + Meringoff Sees Strong Leasing Demand in LIC
Himmel + Meringoff Properties has secured two new leases totaling 20,000 square feet at 21-07 41st Ave., the 127,000-square-foot SF Long Island City office and warehouse building the company acquired in 2017. The two new tenants, American Bridge Company and Futures Memories, will share the second floor.
American Bridge, a civil engineering firm undertaking the restoration of the 59th Street Bridge, will take 13,000 square feet. Futures Memories, a manufacturer of novelty toys and games, signed on for 7,000 square feet.
“The demand for high-quality, well-located and affordable flexible space in Long Island City has been really strong amidst the conversion of other warehouse properties into pricey office buildings, and the booming new residential and hotel construction,” said Himmel + Meringoff CEO Jason Vacker.
Ted Spiegel of Spiegel Real Estate represented American Bridge. Sholom & Zuckerbrot’s Joe Eliasoph represented Future Memories. Vacker and David Cohen represented ownership in-house.
