Savanna Launches $35M Capital Improvement Plan at 711,194 SF Office Building in Queens
NEW YORK CITY — Savanna has launched a $35 million capital improvement plan at Falchi Building, a five-story, 711,194-square-foot office and retail building located in the Factory District of Long Island City in Queens. The capital improvement program will be focused on modernizing the lobby and common areas, including the building systems, and reconfiguring the retail spaces to maximize value. The lobby renovation will revitalize the building entrance and improve the existing ground-floor retail space, which is a food-focused corridor similar to Chelsea Market. The new lobby will include Stonehard flooring, an accent wall with LED backlighting at the entrance, rectangular linear light fixtures, built-in retail millwork kiosks with stone countertops, and black porcelain accent subway tile. The lobby and retail corridor work is scheduled for completion in early 2018. Savanna has retained Cushman & Wakefield to manage leasing efforts at the property.
