Wholesale food distributor rents warehouse and office space in Jamaica, near JFK International Airport
A new lease has been signed in Jamaica, Queens. There is a warehouse and office space at 179-17 149th Avenue that spans over 12,500 square feet, and it has been rented by USA Halal Foods, a wholesale distributor of Halal food. The company will occupy the premises that is situated between Guy R. Brewer Boulevard and 182nd Street, very close to the JFK International Airport. The broker behind the deal is Harvest International. The company will use the ground floor as a warehouse and the second floor will have offices. Numerous loading docks are accessible in the warehouse part of the building.
It was a big decision for USA Halal Foods, but they apparently could not pass up the opportunity of renting eight dedicated loading docks, because of the amount of business they have throughout the East Coast . USA Halal Foods is moving from 47-00 Northern Boulevard in Long Island City, and even though the details of this particular deal have not been disclosed, similar deals near JFK range from $16 to $20 per square foot. The landlord is Seagis JFK LLC, who was represented by Brian Pinnola and Matthew Giugliano of NAI Long Island. [Commercial Observer]
