Permits Pre-Filed for 640 Columbia Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn

Permits are now processing for a sizable new three-story building at 640 Columbia Street, in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The filings confirm movement on a new multi-level commercial distribution center by Dov Hertz and the Innovo Property Group, making this the second large warehouse by the pair in the Five Boroughs. Their first project, still under development, is 2050 Bruckner Boulevard in the Bronx. The Red Hook site would be right next to IKEA, with close proximity to the I-278 and I-478, which would give trucks quick access to Manhattan, Long Island, and New Jersey through Staten Island.
