The Daily Gazette Co. will lease the first floor of its Schenectady headquarters after the arrival of a new press this summer allowed the company to reconfigure space inside the building.

About 24,000 square feet of the building is available for lease — all on the first floor of the 91,121-square-foot building at 2345 Maxon Road Extension.

The space includes offices, open areas of office space and use of the center reception area, ground-floor lunchroom and showers, and lower-level dock.

The board decided a few months ago to lease the space after realizing how much had been freed up with the Daily Gazette’s recent investment in an offset printing press, currently under installation in the warehouse.

“It is always exciting to be able to leverage one project into multiple benefits,” said Gazette Publisher John DeAugustine. “The investment in a new press will give us the opportunity to improve the environment for our team and to lease out 24,000 square feet of space to another company, a true win for all concerned.”

Currently, the newspaper’s advertising, circulation and business departments occupy the first floor. They will move upstairs, where the company’s editorial department is located.

“We will have plenty of space,” said DeAugustine. “Transitions are always a bit tricky, but we will do all we can to minimize the disruption during the change.”

Built in 1988, the Daily Gazette headquarters sits on 9.1 acres of industrial-zoned land on the city’s North End and includes more than 100 parking spaces.

The first floor is suited toward anyone in need of professional space for advertising, computer programming or any other high-tech use.

The property also includes storage space.
