A pair of leases totaling 43,000 square feet have been signed at 21-09 Borden Ave. in Long Island City, the first two deals in a program to make the 170,000-square-foot loft building available to outside tenants. The building’s owner and former sole tenant is relocating its operations to the West Coast.
Both new tenants at 21-09 Borden are relocating to Queens from Manhattan. DeAngelis, Ltd., a high-end upholsterer, has signed for 27,000 square feet, while digital printing company TouchStone Direct is taking 16,000 square feet. Both are five-year leases, according to Sholom & Zuckerbrot, which arranged the deals.
