NYC School Construction Authority Leases 350K SF for New Headquarters in LIC

Savanna has leased 350,000 square feet of office space to the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) in a 20-year deal at One Court Square. The Long Island City office tower will serve as SCA’s new headquarters, following a relocating from 30-30 Thompson Ave. in LIC.    

“The SCA’s current 2020-2024 Capital Plan is the largest capital plan in our history and marks an unprecedented investment in our schools,” said SCA president and CEO Nina Kubota. “The expiration of our previous lease gave us the opportunity to expand our office blueprint in order to manage a larger portfolio of projects to improve the quality of our school environments, reduce overcrowding, and ensure our school buildings and other facilities are in a state of good repair. This new location for our headquarters checks all the boxes.”    

JLL serves as exclusive leasing agent for One Court Square.
