Following last year’s brisk leasing activity for warehouse space on Long Island, Milvado Property Group sees the trend continuing and even accelerating. The Syosset, NY-based Milvado leased or renewed more than 50,000 square feet during January.
“E-commerce is driving retailers’ insatiable appetite for super large warehouse space to accommodate products purchased online,” said David Hercman, regional director at Milvado. “We are in the process of updating and repurposing many of the industrial properties in our portfolio to meet this 21st century heightened demand.”
In the largest of the deals, California Fragrance Company expanded and renewed for a total of 22,032 square feet at 171-175 2nd St. in Huntington Station, NY. At 575 Underhill Blvd. in Syosset, Golden House Cabinets leased 20,000 square feet of industrial space. Nick Gallipoli of Cushman & Wakefield represented Golden House, while the landlord was represented in-house.
