QUEENS — One of the largest office buildings in Rego Park, known as Queens Tower, has just been sold for nearly $140 million, according to city records.
Fidelis Care, which has been one of the tenants in the building, confirmed the deal that closed on March 28, according to city records.
The company did not immediately respond to questions about its future plans for the building.
The LeFrak Organization, one of the biggest landlords in the city, declined to comment.
The 358,000-square-foot building, between 62nd Drive and Junction Boulevard, near the Rego Center Mall, also houses North Shore LIJ urgent care center, Lobster House as well as branches of TD and Capital One banks.
In 2012, LeFrak turned its other office building in Rego Park into a luxury rental building, called The Contour, featuring large apartments, a lounge and a roof deck with barbecue grills, which real estate experts say spurred an infusion of upscale buildings in the neighborhood.
Rego Park has since been undergoing a transformation, attracting developers and new residents.
Last July, another Rego Park office building, a 2-story structure at 99-01 Queens Blvd., sold for $31.2 million, nearly $5 million more than it sold for a decade ago.
