A speculative warehouse project dubbed Bristol Logistics Center is approaching the final stage of development in Long Island, New York. Earlier in 2021, Bristol Group purchased a 103,000 square feet manufacturing building to develop the project. Ropack Pharma Solutions was the previous owner of the property and it was sold for $10 million.
The location of the Bristol Logistics Center development is within the prestigious Long Island Innovation Park at Hauppauge. Therefore it’s less than a mile away from Long Island Expressway and half a mile from the Northern State Parkway.
According to the developer, the location offers access to about eight million people in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau County and Suffolk County. Additionally, future tenants will also be able to conveniently access the greater New York metropolitan region.
Development plans for the Bristol Logistics Center
Bristol Logistics Center will include a warehouse with 36 feet of clear height and 31 Dock high loading doors. The facility also features two 21 feet wide drive-in loading ramps, 16 trailer parking and 205 employee parking stalls. In addition, there are spaces available for future expansion which can accommodate car or truck parking stalls and offices. However, these additions will be customized to suit the needs of the future tenants.
Bristol Group’s managing director, Dave Williams was grateful to the City of Smithtown for partnering with his company on the project. He said the city had supported their efforts to transform the outdated pharmaceutical property into a brand-new logistics facility. Williams also mentioned his company was excited to deliver the first high-cube warehouse development in the desirable Hauppauge area. Especially since the region is severely underserved in terms of modern industrial buildings.
JLL‘s Long Island Industrial team is in charge of handling the leasing and marketing arrangements for the Bristol Logistics Center. The team, which consists of Doug Omstrom, Max Omstrom and Tom DiMicelli, is seeking single or multiple tenants for the facility. They will host an open house this month on the Mall Drive grounds.
