Queens County Bar Association and Queens Volunteer Lawyers Project have leased offices at the newly built 8814 Sutphin Blvd. in Queens

Legal Groups Opt for Newly Built Office Space in Queens

Lee & Associates NYC represented Queens County Bar Association (QCBA) and Queens Volunteer Lawyers Project (QVLP) in a new lease at the newly built 8814 Sutphin Blvd. in Queens’ Jamaica neighborhood, located directly across from the New York Supreme Court. Both tenants took identical 2,400-square-foot spaces. 

Kelly Koukou from Lee & Associates NYC represented the tenants, and David Payami from Capital Property Partners represented the landlord, Haiim Pour Family. 

“The needs for New York office tenants have changed,” said Kelly Koukou, executive managing director and Principal at Lee & Associates NYC. “QCBA was at their old building for over 60 years and realized it was time to make a change to reflect their new business model.” 

With the move to 8814 Sutphin, QCBA plans to sell its old building at 90-35 148th street. Koukou is representing the firm in negotiations with potential buyers.
