Attesting to the outer boroughs’ demand for industrial, Simone Development Companies has leased up a Bronx property shortly after acquiring it. Two tenants, Landauer Medstar and Aclara, have committed to a total of 41,000 square feet at 1185 Commerce Ave. in the Zerega Industrial Business Zone in the Bronx.
The Simone Metro Properties team of James MacDonald and Josh Gopan signed up Landauer Medstar, a leading medical equipment and supply company, and smart infrastructure solutions supplier Aclara to leases of 27,845 and 13,256 square feet, respectively. Cleva/Philips Real Estate’s Frank Dean and Brian Cleva represented Landauer, while Cushman & Wakefield’s Michael McCarthy negotiated for Aclara.
“In a white-hot industrial market, tenants valued our ability to quickly deliver a pristine industrial building allowing them to move in and open for business immediately with nearly no downtime,” said Gopan.
