Alma Realty leases another property in Queens

The Apple Building in Long Island City

Alma Realty Corp. is the owner of the building based at 30-30 Northern Blvd. This building is known as the Apple Building, and was recently leased. A family-owned and operated property management firm signed a 12 year lease.

The owner, Alma Realty Corp., is also a family run business that operates from New York. This company has properties in the tri-state area. These properties range from residential, commercial, retail and warehouse.

The company that signed the lease is called Charles H. Greenthal Property Sales. Once they take over, Greenthal is expected to bring 105 jobs to the area. According to some estimates, they will move by the end of 2017.

Alma Realty representatives are proud to welcome Greenthal Properties to the Long Island City community. This building is perfectly located when it comes to transit accessibility. Furthermore, the lightning and floor sizes will be great for tenants. The building also include several amenities, such as free fitness center, bike racks and a roof deck.

Once the building is fully employed, it will surely boost the local economy and further push the revival of the neighborhood. Long Island City is one of the most up-and-coming areas in the whole city, for both residential and commercial purposes.

For Albert Mayas, the director of management at Greenthal Property, it was a no brainer. His company was looking for an interesting property in the LIC area, and the various amenities offered sealed the deal for them.

The building itself has eight stories and spans 213,000 square feet. It features floor plates that range from 26,000 to 30,000 and its ceilings reach 15 feet. Furthermore, the building is very close to several subway stations such as the Queens Plaza one. It is also very near to the Queensboro Bridge and has a 10 minute commute to Midtown Manhattan. [NYRej]
