One Court Square Secures 350K-sf Lease with NYC’s SCA

The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA), which oversees the design and construction of New York City public schools, signed a lease for 350,000 square feet at One Court Square for the agency’s new headquarters. Located in Long Island City, Queens, the SCA will occupy the entire 6th through 17th floors under a 20-year lease upon relocating from its current Long Island City location at 30-30 Thompson Avenue. SCA’s decision to move at lease expiration was prompted by a need to expand its office footprint at a time when its current 2020-2024 capital plan is the largest in the agency’s history, while taking advantage of the opportunity to remain in the same neighborhood the SCA has called home for more than 30-years. One Court Square recently completed a major capital improvement program, including a 150,000-square-foot retail annex.
