While almost no office leases crossed the wires last week, an industrial deal in Brooklyn did break through. American Tool & Equipment Rental has agreed to lease the full 15K SF building at 185 Second Ave. in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. F. Ranieri + Sons Corp. has owned and occupied the building for more than 100 years, and the mason and building materials provider will continue to own the building while the rental business occupies it. James Dario of Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates brokered the lease on behalf of Frank Ranieri, who is retiring, and the new tenant.
