LONG ISLAND CITY — The Falchi Building is getting a couple of sweet tenants.

Russian pie-makers Stolle Pie Shops and Manhattan baked goods purveyor Doughnut Plant are the newest future additions to the former warehouse at 31-00 47th Ave., which is owned by Chelsea Market developer Jamestown.

Stolle is leasing a 2,175-square-foot space at the site, according to Winick Realty Group, which brokered the deal. It will be a production facility that will include a retail counter, a rep for Jamestown said. The Wall Street Journal first reported the news.

Stolle makes both savory treats, like meat pies and herring pies, and sweet ones, like apple or apricot flavors, according to its menu. This will be the first U.S. location for the company, which opened in 2002 and has 49 locations in Eastern Europe and the United Kingdom.

"Stolle is a proven and successful operation in Europe and, given the quality of their food and the unique customer experience of eating at a Stolle cafe, we are confident that Stolle will easily replicate that success here in New York," Winick's Aaron S. Fishbein said in a statement.

The Falchi location is expected to open this summer, a rep for Winick said.

Meanwhile, Doughnut Plant — which got its start on the Lower East Side and now has locations in Brooklyn and Chelsea — will open at Falchi this month, according to an update on its website.

The space will be both a production site as well as a small shop, the company said in another online post this past fall.

The two new tenants are the latest in a roster of food-related companies that call the Falchi Building home. L'Arte Del Gelato and organic juice company Juice Press run production facilities there already.

The building also hosts The Food Box, a collection of food vendors that serve lunch during the week.
