Cooper Union Takes 14,500 sq. ft. Through Greiner-Maltz

Long Island City, NY, February 20, 2007 – The Cooper Union, a venerable non-profit arts institution has recently leased 14,500 sq. ft. of expansion studio space at 51-02 21st Street in Long Island City.

The school’s new satellite art studios will primarily serve expanding enrollment in Queens and Brooklyn.

Minutes away from Manhattan and Brooklyn, amidst one of the fastest growing artist communities, this 125,000 sq. ft, 6 story, mixed used loft building, owned by PDS Development, was The Cooper Union’s first choice.

Dmitri Belyi and Ken Dowd, the Greiner-Maltz brokers who represented both the lessor and The Cooper Union, give thanks to the efforts of LICBDC’s Dan Miner who assisted the school in its consideration of Long Island City.
