Arch Auto Parts, one of New York’s fastest-growing auto parts retailers with 20 convenient locations, has doubled the footprint of its main distribution center from 30,000 to over 60,000 rentable square feet (RSF).
The new lease is both an extension and expansion for Arch Auto Parts at the Ideal Queens industrial building, located at 184-10 & 184-60 Jamaica Avenue in Jamaica, Queens, according to owners KABR Group and Monocle Group.
“Doubling the size of our Queens center is critical to our growing regional footprint,” said Chris Bodh, owner and CEO of Arch Auto Parts. “We are excited to be working with the new ownership group on our company’s expansion in this great location.”
Ideal Queens, purchased by KABR and Monocle in February 2022, consists of more than 620,000 RSF, which is conveniently located with access to Manhattan, Long Island City, Long Island, JFK International Airport, LaGuardia Airport and Brooklyn. The warehouse and logistics buildings are equipped with 15 loading docks, multiple drive-in doors, 24/7 secured access, ceiling heights of up to 20 feet clear and onsite surface parking.
Ideal Queens is situated on a major thoroughfare with accessibility to local routes as well as interstate highways. For a convenient commute, employees enjoy proximity to Jamaica Station, serviced by the E, J, M and Z subway lines and the Long Island Railroad.
“Arch Auto Parts is a perfect fit for Ideal Queens,” said Adam Altman, Founder and Managing Partner of KABR. “We are excited to be a part of their continued growth.”
The new owners have commenced a comprehensive renovation. This modernization project will transform the building into a Class A industrial center by improving the buildings infrastructure and tenant experience.
The improvements include a complete exterior restoration of the building façade, including replacing original windows, installation of brand-new automatic freight and passenger elevators, complete bathroom remodeling and upgrading of loading docks with full dock packages.
“The ongoing project will continue to transform the asset into a best-in-class multi-story light industrial, manufacturing, warehouse and distribution facility in a highly supply-constrained New York City consumer market,” Arch Auto Parts added in a news release.
Leasing opportunities are available with the ability to accommodate a variety of industries looking for 1,000 to 200,000 RSF within minutes of Manhattan.
