Property Description

Cushman and Wakefield has been retained on an exclusive basis to arrange for the sale of a 276,705 square foot industrial facility located at 23-30 Borden Avenue in Long Island City, New York (the “Property”). The Property currently serves as the headquarters of FreshDirect, one of the metro area’s leading online grocer’s, and features state-of-the-art refrigeration and exceptional last-mile distribution capabilities. Currently, FreshDirect is operating under a below market NNN lease through January 2019 providing ample planning time for users and investors to re-tenant or reposition the asset while collecting over $2M in revenue.
The Property also includes an irreplaceable 5,760 square foot digital billboard, featuring direct visibility to 90,000+ daily drivers traveling along the Long Island Expressway. With virtually no competition, the billboard represents a truly remarkable opportunity and supplemental revenue stream.
The current M3-2 zoning designation permits a maximum FAR of 2.2, which translates into a total buildable square footage of approximately 448,346 or approximately an additional 171,641 square feet of development rights. The overall potential for the Property is virtually endless, having the ability to appeal to a variety of different end users and investor groups.
Most notable is the Property’s ideal last-mile location, having direct access to all of New York City’s major distribution channels including the Pulaski Bridge and Brooklyn Queens Expressway serving the hottest neighborhoods of Brooklyn, the Midtown Tunnel servicing Manhattan, and the Long Island Expressway connecting to the affluent communities on Long Island. Finally, the property represents the only large format industrial space with a potential rail spur and the multiple communities it can serve.
