Space Available at a Discounted Rent for Artists in Court Square

Santander Building (GMaps)

June 14, 2019 By Shane O’Brien

Space in a Court Square office building is available and the owner is looking to rent it to an arts organization at a discounted rate.

The owner of the Santander Bank Building, located at 24-29 Jackson Ave., is looking to find a second-floor tenant for the next two years. The landlord, Tavros Capital, is working with Community Board 2 to find an arts group to take the space.

Denise Keehan-Smith, Community Board 2 Chair, said that board is looking to publicize the availability of the space as much as possible and emphasized that it is available at a discounted rate for those working in the arts.

Keehan-Smith said that the space, which is roughly 7,000 square feet, will be available to groups of artists or dancers. She said the board will work with groups to help push the rent down as much as possible.

“When we talked to the owner, they mentioned that they would be looking for about $30 per square foot,” Keehan-Smith said. That figure is still high for an arts organization, she said, so the board will work to get it lower.

young man!

$30 is no discount.
Plenty of nice second floor and even ground floor space available in nice parts of LIC and borderline Astoria for $25 a square foot or less. I just rented some very nice (slightly larger) second floor space for under $20.
