"We are proud to reintroduce this property to the L.I. community and future tenants," said Swig. "We know this is a highly desirable location for corporate and general office occupancy and look forward to welcoming our new tenants."
Over the past year, Swig Equities took over management of this 80,000 rentable s/f property and oversaw more than $1.5 million in comprehensive building wide renovations and improvements which included: renovated lobby and entrance canopy; renovated elevators and mechanicals; upgraded electrical service; backup duel fuel generator insuring uninterrupted power to all tenants; upgraded HVAC systems; new roof; new security and fire/life safety systems; upgraded emergency generator; new outdoor lighting; new signage; new tenant corridors; upgraded bathrooms; and a resurfaced parking area.
"We have essentially created a new 21st century commercial building to serve Long Island's growing needs as a corporate center. The improvements that we have managed over the past year clearly have made 825 East Gate into a class A commercial property," said Jonathan Dean, senior vice president, Swig Equities.
Amenities of the property, in addition to the capital upgrades, include: a cafÃ©/restaurant on the ground floor; glass elevators overlooking lobby atrium; on-site building manager; walking distance to Hyatt Place Hotel and East Gate Shopping Center; direct access to Meadowbrook Parkway and Roosevelt Field.
