The law firm Ferro, Kuba, Mangano, Sklyar P.C. has bought, renovated and moved into a $1.7 million office building in Hauppauge, the firm has announced.
The single-story, 7,000 square foot building is on two acres at 825 Veterans Memorial Hwy.
The law firm bought it from Fairfield Properties, of Commack, and remodeled it based on a design by Gary J. Bruno Architects, Bohemia. The law firm moved into the building in February and is occupying 5,000 square feet. It may lease the remaining space to sole practitioners.
Previously, the firm rented 5,000 square feet at 350 Motor Pkwy., Hauppauge.
“We were looking to either sign a long-term lease in our existing space or possibly relocate when this building was brought to our attention,” law firm partner Lance Kuba said in a news release.
“There are very few free standing one-story office buildings available in Suffolk County,” he said.
Ferro, Kuba is a 30-person, eight-attorney, full-service law firm specializing in personal injury, real estate, business matters, criminal defense and immigration law, their news release said. It also has a 4,000 square foot office on West 33rd Street in Manhattan.
Robert Donovan, an associate director in the Long Island office of Newmark Knight Frank Global Real Estate Advisers, represented Ferro Kuba in the transaction; David Berger represented Fairfield in-house.
Kuba provided legal representation for his law firm, while Gary Hisiger and David Cohen, partners in the Garden City law firm Moritt Hock Hamroff & Horowitz LLP, represented the landlord.
