Certified Woman Business Enterprise (WBE), City Lumber is expanding to LIC after enjoying a surge in business.
The company will nearly double its space with a move from Long Island City to a new 73,000 s/f headquarters and warehouse at 84-00 73rd Avenue in Glendale Queens taking.
The deal – brokered by Norman Bobrow & Company – includes an additional 32,500 s/f of outdoor space. Asking rent was $23 psf.
“We’ve been exploring the market with City Lumber for a number of years and are thrilled that we’ve been able to secure a new headquarters in Glendale Queens,” said Josh Berger, managing director at Norman Bobrow who worked with colleague Alex Lubin to negotiate the new 12-year lease for City Lumber.
“This building offers City Lumber an enlarged warehouse space and enhanced office that will help serve its growing customer base for the foreseeable future.”
A fourth-generation woman-owned commercial construction supply company and full-service lumberyard, City Lumber has experienced exponential growth, winning work at major projects including LaGuardia Airport, the La Central housing development in the Bronx, Moynihan Station, and Hudson Yards Tower A and Tower E.
Vice president David Spodek commented, “Operating out of 40,000 s/f, divided between two buildings in Long Island City, our need for a larger and more suitable warehouse became a growing and daunting hurdle for our company.
“With an enormous, and steadfast effort from both Josh and Alex, we were able to secure a property that will allow us to continue to be woven into the fabric of the greatest city in the world.”
