Five Lease Deals Signed at Kingsbrook Office Park
RYE BROOK—New York City-based George Comfort & Sons announced on Feb. 6 that five lease agreements totaling more than 83,000 square feet have been signed at the Kingsbrook office complex in Rye Brook.
In January, George Comfort & Sons signed a 10-year agreement with Regus to open a location at Kingsbrook in mid-2023 across 15,800 square feet at 4 International Drive. Regus is part of IWG, the world’s leading provider of hybrid work solutions—with 3,500 locations in 120 countries.
“The year is off to a running start at Kingsbrook, and we are pleased to welcome Regus to the complex. We are confident that the new location will serve as an added amenity for our tenants, as well as provide Rye Brook and Westchester County residents with a quality workspace option close to home,” said George Comfort & Sons President and CEO Peter S. Duncan, who represented ownership in all transactions along with Senior Vice President Dana Pike.
The agreement with Regus builds on the strong leasing momentum that George Comfort & Sons established at Kingsbrook to close out 2022.
The following agreements were secured over the last several months of the year:
In the largest of the late 2022 transactions, Kyndryl, Inc. signed a five-year, 26,212-square-foot lease at 2 International Drive. Kyndryl is the world’s largest IT infrastructure provider that designs, builds and manages mission-critical systems for thousands of customers around the globe. The company, which was formerly part of IBM, has moved into its space on the building’s second floor.
Kyndryl was represented in the transaction by Patrick Murphy, Winston Schromm and Kevin McCarthy of Cushman & Wakefield.
At 3 International Drive, Schimenti Construction Company leased 20,829 square feet for 11 years on the building’s third floor, relocating its local suburban offices from Ridgefield, CT. Glenn Walsh of Newmark represented Schimenti in the transaction.
Peter Pauper Press, Inc. signed a 9,818-square-foot lease at 3 International Drive for 11 years. The 94-year-old maker of fine books, stationery puzzles and other specialty products relocated from White Plains. Craig Ruoff of Colliers represented the company.
Compass Group USA, a leading food service and support services company that has been at home on the campus since 2000, will be relocating from 2 International Drive to 6 International Drive, after signing a new 10-year lease for 10,817 square feet. Mike Norris of Cushman & Wakefield represented the long-time Kingsbrook tenant in the new lease transaction.
“These are all top companies in their respective fields and well established in the Westchester/Connecticut area. We are pleased that they have chosen to maintain a presence in the suburban region for years to come, and we are especially pleased that they will be our tenants at Kingsbrook,” Duncan said.
Acquired by a joint venture of George Comfort & Sons and DRA Advisors in 2018, the six-building, 565,000-square-foot office complex is located on 25 acres near the Westchester County Airport, Hutchinson River Parkway, I-287, I-95, and I-684.
