The city’s Department of Records and Information has expanded its space within Sunset Park’s Industry City development with a new 20-year lease. It will retain 35,251 square feet of its former space at 138 38th St. while taking over 97,564 square feet of new space in a connected building at 167 41st St., also within the complex. Kathe Chase, director of leasing for Industry City, told the Commercial Observer that the complex moved the city agency because it wanted to accommodate new office tenants at the old location. The new storage space, unlike the old, is air-conditioned.

“We’re very pleased to be able to move the city’s precious historical records into newly renovated climate-controlled space at Industry City,” said agency spokesman Kenneth Cobb.    

Meanwhile, Industry City has struck a 12-year deal for a new Gumption Coffee shop on the ground floor of Building 19. It will be the first U.S. outpost for the Australia-based chain, which will devote 5,000 square feet for a roastery and 1,000 square feet for a cafe there.

Joseph Isa of the Isa Group, which represented Gumption in the transaction, told the Commercial Observer the coffee shop would have a built-in clientele because the Brooklyn Nets’ training facility, the Hospital for Special Surgery and ABC Carpet and Home are also in the building.
