Rockefeller Group Begins Construction on Second Distribution Center on Long Island

Rockefeller Group has begun construction on a 145,200-square-foot distribution center in Woodbury, NY (Long Island).  The company purchased 9 acres through an assemblage of 1 Media Crossways and 200 Crossways Park Drive, in December 2021. Cushman & Wakefield is representing Rockefeller Group on the leasing of Crossways Logistics Center.

“Rockefeller Group recognizes the need for Class-A industrial development on Long Island and this site in Nassau County is ideally-located to serve that need,” said Phillip Golub, Director, for Rockefeller Group.  “While this project represents our first development in the Nassau County, Long Island industrial market, it is our second on Long Island and we will continue to look for more opportunities in the region.”

Crossways Logistics Center is expected to be completed by year-end. The new speculative distribution center will include 36-foot ceiling clear heights, 54’ X 50’ column spacing, more than 270 car spaces, 35 dock doors with an additional 18 spaces of trailer parking, and 60’ speed bays.

“Long Island’s existing industrial inventory is functionally obsolete with an average of 50 years old. Crossways Logistics Center offers a product to meet the tenant demand for flight-to-quality and is ideally situated with easy access to the Long Island Expressway,” said Nicholas Gallipoli, Senior Director, Cushman & Wakefield of Long Island Inc. “Supply chain resilience and cost savings are driving factors for companies expanding into Long Island.”

Rockefeller Group is developing 55 Paradise Lane, a 172,622 square foot distribution center, in Bay Shore. It is nearing completion and will be ready for occupancy this month.

The general contractor for Crossways Logistics Center and 55 Paradise Lane is Ronkonkoma-based Aurora Contractors, Inc. The building was designed by Ware Malcomb and the civil engineer is Huntington-based R&M Engineers.
