LIC’s Lion Match Building Signs Tri-County Care

Cushman & Wakefield has arranged a new full floor lease at the Lion Match Building in Long Island City. Tri-County Care will occupy the entire top floor of the property in a 17,060-square-foot space.

A Cushman & Wakefield team of Joseph Grotto and Edward Kent represented the building owners, working closely with the majority owner and managing agent, Werwaiss & Co., Inc. to complete the transaction. The tenant was represented by Jeff Unger from Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates.

The Lion Match Building offers tremendous transportation access given its proximity to both Court Square and Queens Plaza,” said Grotto. This proved ideal for Tri-County Care ”as the company looked to expand beyond its existing Brooklyn and Queens locations.”

Built in 1924 as a warehouse for the Lion Match Company, the 60,000-square-foot boutique property at 22-15 43rd Ave. has enjoyed a run of leasing activity in recent months.
