Newmark has announced the market debut of 11-20 46th Road, a completely renovated 34,725 rentable square-foot office building in the heart of Long Island City. Newmark Senior Managing Directors Bernard Weitzman, Eric Cagner and Associate Director Ryan Gessin are representing the developer, Caerus Group, who provided a complete retrofit of the former warehouse, which included demolition down to the building’s base and adding 19,000 square feet on two additional floors. Caerus Group is known for its ability to create and redevelop properties into modern and desirable office spaces, such as 74 Kent Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
This four-story property boasts expansive views of the Manhattan skyline in a prime location, half a block away from MoMA PS1 and near major transportation lines. “Unlike many buildings in Long Island City, which are large industrial conversions in the Factory district, 11-20 46th Road is for all intents and purposes a brand-new building,” said Weitzman. The impressive gut renovation encompasses a dramatic new lobby, new façade, all new building systems, new elevators, soaring ceilings, new floor-to-ceiling windows and large private terraces located on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors. Floor sizes range from 6,000 to 12,000 square feet.
“We took a defunct jewelry manufacturing facility and turned it into a jewel framed by the spectacular setting of outdoor spaces on every floor and Manhattan’s skyline on the background,” said Nadir Saigol. “This has been a rewarding project in every sense,” added Leo Tsimmer, both of Caerus Group.
With renovation scheduled to be completed by Summer 2018, this new boutique office building, with state-of-the-art infrastructure, is a unique branding opportunity for prospective tenants. The property is also eligible for REAP benefits.
