The signing, arranged by real estate firm Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates, is for the one-story building at 91-20 130th St. and will expand operations for KPA Studio. Its original location in the neighborhood is at 130-29 91st Ave. A majority of the new facility will be used for aluminum production, according to Kalmon’s Dmitri Gourianov, who handled the leasing.
KPA has supplied various architectural firms with materials for projects around the city, including the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center at Queensborough Community College, which is designed by TEK Architects, the Brooklyn Bowery and some H&M locations.
The new KPA location has 18-foot ceilings, three drive-in doors, and is located near the E, J, and Z subway lines.
There are a number of manufacturing and construction companies in the area of the new location, Gourianov said, including sheet metal, window and doors, and food production.
