LBA, RXR Plan Multistory Warehouse in Maspeth

LBA Logistics and RXR Realty plan to develop Grand Logistics Center, a 770,000-square-foot, multistory facility in the Maspeth section of Queens. They’ve hired JLL to provide marketing and leasing services both for the proposed multistory facility and the existing 71,000-square-foot warehouse on the site at 56-19 Grand Ave.

JLL’s Rob Kossar, Adam Citron and Leslie Lanne will work directly with representatives of LBA Logistics and RXR Realty. “It is unique to find an infill, last-mile property that can accommodate both a 71,000-square-foot use, as well as 6.5 acres for storage and parking,” said Kossar.

Ownership anticipates demolishing two existing buildings in early 2019, paving the way for eventual construction of the multistory facility. “This is an ideal location for a logistics facility to provide last-mile distribution services throughout Queens, Brooklyn, Long Island City, the East Side of Manhattan, Lower Manhattan and the rest of the boroughs,” Kossar said.
