There will be no more games at this former warehouse, because class is almost in session.
The School Construction Authority signed a 10-year lease for a one-story Richmond Hill building, and it plans to create space for a pre-kindergarten at the site, which was formerly a warehouse for arcade vending machine supplier Bay Coin Distributors.
The arcade business is moving its operations blocks away to a smaller location, according to real estate firm Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates, which handled the transaction.
The school will take up the entire warehouse building at 132-10 Jamaica Ave., which has 12,400 square feet of space, and will seat 100 students when completed.
The site had an asking price of $30 per square foot.
Construction has already begun to transform the building into the new school, a representative for the real estate firm said.
