Medical transport service United Ambulette has expanded its business with a move to larger digs in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn. The company, which also has a school division, was based at 3131 Greenpoint Avenue in Long Island City prior to the June 1 move to 144 Pilling Street, off Central Avenue.

Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates brokers Jeffrey Unger and Robert Klein represented United Ambulette and the landlord, the Tony Argento-owned Corastar Holding Inc., in the deal, the brokerage announced. The third-generation United Ambulette took 6,000 square feet of warehouse space plus 20,000 square feet of outdoor yard space for its vehicles.

The 56,000-square-foot property is a former iron works site and the United Ambulette space had been vacant for a while, Mr. Klein said.

The lease, also signed on June 1, is for five years with a five-year option, Mr. Klein noted. The rent is $168,000 per year.

At its old home United Ambulette was operating its office out of a two-family house with its vehicles stored next door. With the move, United Ambulette has been able to consolidate its operations into one place and grow its business, with an additional 30 vehicles.
