Davis Companies Begins Cap Improvements at Maspeth’s Pearl Building
A multimillion-dollar capital improvement program has begun at the Pearl Building, a 156,792-square-foot industrial building at 58-30 Grand Ave. in Maspeth, Queens. Cushman & Wakefield’s Joshua A. Kleinberg and Joe Hentze Jr. will serve as the exclusive leasing agents on behalf of the landlord, The Davis Companies.
“With continuing demand and a lack of inventory, the need for high-quality distribution spaces in proximity to Manhattan is greater than ever,” said Kleinberg. “Davis is committed to providing best-in-class spaces for their tenants which is why the property is currently undergoing an immense capital improvement program, resulting in interior upgrades and façade restoration.”
The capital improvement program at the Pearl Building will result in updated loading positions including new dock doors, levelers, seals/bumpers, paving/coatings and building protection. Additional improvements will include a façade restoration, elevator upgrades, lobby upgrades, new restrooms and security upgrades throughout.
