New plans have been revealed for an industrial and air-cargo facility in the South Ozone Park area of Queens. New York-based developer Triangle Equities acquired the property, located at 130-24 South Conduit Avenue, for a total of $25.4 million in early 2018.
Development plans for the site show it to be the first facility of its kind in the Five Boroughs. The project will create the first multi-level, multi-tenant, air cargo and distribution facility serving New York City and the greater East Coast as a whole.
Plans call for a total of 300,000 square feet to be created, split between three stories. Floors one and two will serve as an industrial area, including space to accommodate full-sized shipping trailers. Access to the building will be via ramps, which will direct vehicles to either floor and allow them to enter so they can dock, load, and unload directly at their destination.
The facility is slated to be a Class-A industrial space, something which JFK greatly lacks, and will also feature market leading clear heights, large structural column spacing, and high capacity load floors.
This project also aligns with goals set by the JFK Action Agenda, and will contribute toward meeting the published forecast growth in the plan by increasing access to Class A space. The location’s close proximity to JFK International Airport also affords efficient, direct access for air cargo related services.
130-24 South Conduit Avenue also features frontage on the Belt Parkway, offering immediate transit access. The property is also located near the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the third largest port in the United States.
Ground breaking is expected in the winter of 2019, with tenant occupancy beginning in the summer of 2020. Craft Architects is responsible for the site’s design.
