This Maspeth real estate deal was particularly sweet.
An office furniture company announced Thursday it has purchased the former Junior’s cheesecake bakery on Maurice Avenue for $4.5 million to use as a production and warehouse facility.
Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates brokered the deal between the holding company Let it Be Realty LLC and Quality Installation NY Inc.
Located at 58-44 Maurice Ave., the site includes 14,000 square feet on the ground level along with a 1,500-square-foot mezzanine storage area and, above that, 1,500 square feet of office space.
According to Kalmon Dolgin, Quality Installation NY intends to manufacture and warehouse furniture and workstation products and perform repairs to its products at the location.
Junior’s, the Brooklyn-based restaurant chain famously known for its decadent cheesecake, leased the factory for 15 years before announcing in April that it was relocating to New Jersey.
The Maurice Avenue site encompassed just under 20,000 square feet in space, but Junior’s new bakery in Burlington is more than five times larger.
