Another old factory building in Long Island City is up for grabs and could see a residential conversion.
Real estate firm Modern Spaces announced on Thursday that its commercial properties division is marketing the former DeNobili Cigar Factory at 35-11 9th St. The four-story building was recently renovated and is “ideally positioned for residential conversion” being that the site is zoned for residential use, according to the real estate firm.
“The pace of development in Long Island City is showing no signs of slowing,” said Evan Daniel, executive vice president of Modern Spaces’ commercial division. “Not only does this property enjoy a current high occupancy, but with the R5 zoning and accessory lot, it holds a great deal of promise for a residential conversion.”
Daniel is marketing the property with Edward DiTomasso.
The building has a total of 102,670 square feet and was constructed in 1896. It has potentially attractive features if it were to be converted for residential use, including 20-foot ceilings, exposed beams, hardwood floors and arched windows.
The former cigar factory currently has 57 commercial units and two cell towers.
There is also an adjacent vacant lot connected to the site at 35-31 9th St., which has more than 6,000 buildable square feet.
