Little guys eat up 30,000 s/f of industrial space at Barone’s LIC property

by

Cushman & Wakefield has leased nearly 30,000 s/f of
office and industrial space at Barone Management’s The Woodworks in Long Island
City.

 Situated at 9-03 44th
Road The Woodworks LIC is a 90,000 s/f property developed by Barone to cater to
small businesses being squeezed out of so-called last-mile space by e-commerce
and logistics giants.

The first ground-up industrial and light manufacturing building to be constructed in Long Island City in excess of 30 years, it features 21 ft. ceilings on the ground floor, 14 ft. ceilings on the second and third floors, heated and air-conditioned warehouses, electrical overhead doors, private bathrooms, private roof terraces, a shared fitness center and conference area and a shared rooftop recreational space with views of Manhattan. The building encompasses a multitude of overheard truck access and drive-in bays.
