Long Island law firm inks 35,000 s/f lease.

Cushman & Wakefield announced that Forchelli, Curto, Crowe, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Cohn, LLP, a Long Island law firm, has leased 35,000 s/f for its headquarters at The Omni, located at 333 Earle Ovington Boulevard in Uniondale, New York.

The firm signed a 10-year lease and will occupy the 10th floor of the 575,000 s/f building, which is owned by RXR. Forchelli Curto will relocate from 330 Old Country Road in Mineola, New York. The move is scheduled to take place in late spring/early summer.

Jeffrey D. Forchelli, the firm's managing partner said the relocation is "part of a long-term, cost-effective approach to ensure our firm's continued success and growth in the region."

Ted Stratigos, senior director of Cushman & Wakefield of Long Island, and the broker who represented Forchelli Curto, said, "The Omni was an ideal fit with the firm's image, offering an accessible location in a well-managed, building and what is considered a trophy Long Island office building. RXR's emphasis on quality amenities and attention to details is unprecedented."

Partner Brian R. Sahn oversaw the firm's selection process, and Sahn and partner Barbara Alesi, spearheaded Forchelli Curto's lease negotiations. The new law office will implement the latest in design and technology for law firms. Construction of the new offices will also include a multitude of "green" and sustainable construction materials and techniques which are being overseen by a LEED accredited architect.

The Omni is a Class A multi-tenant office building in Nassau County, just east of Garden City. The property is adjacent to Hofstra University, Nassau Coliseum and Mitchel County Park.

"We're thrilled we were able to accommodate Forchelli Curto's existing needs, as well as allow for expansion space as their business continues to grow," said Ken Bauer, executive vice president of leasing for RXR. "The Omni offers tenants the benefits of a strategic location, combined with the best amenities and tenant-directed service in one of the region's most desirable properties."
