Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates, Inc. (KDA) has arranged a 33,000 s/f, long-term lease at 140 58th Street in the Bay Ridge area of Brooklyn, NY for a new Ford Motors service facility.
Kalmon and Neil Dolgin, co-presidents of Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates, made the announcement.
Robert Klein of Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates represented the tenant Ford Motors/Bay Ridge Automotive Corporation LLC., and the owner, the New York City Economic Development Corporation.
Ford Motors will occupy 33,000 s/f in the former Federal Laundry Building at the Brooklyn Army Terminal (BAT), and enjoy the use of a 55,000 s/f yard.
The BAT is a free-standing complex which offers two eight-story buildings. The site was formerly used during World War II as a laundry facility for the cleaning of the soldiers’ uniforms.
Said KDA broker Bob Klein, “Due to the historic status of 140 58th Street, Ford Motors was in negotiations for about a year, working to comply with the State Historic Preservation Office. The tenant will use this site as a service facility for new cars.”
140 58th Street is located at the corner of First Avenue near the waterfront in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. It offers access to the Gowanus Expressway and Belt Parkway.
