Bohemia, NY According to Hastings Capital, LLC, development is underway for a 25,560 s/f industrial warehouse for Queue Solutions, a PRM Group Co., at 175 Knickerbocker Ave. Queue Solutions has two current warehouses in the area, and was looking to build a new facility from the ground up to accommodate its growing business. The company produces stanchions for crowd control.
“Hastings has been working with Queue Solutions as tenants for ten years. They outgrew the current space but plan to continue to maintain the other two buildings as well,” said Hastings Capital owner Bob Birnbaum. “We were happy to be able to accommodate their need to build from the ground up.”
“Queue Solutions is thrilled to be able to construct a new building in this location. What’s more, we value our working relationship with Hastings Capital and are excited to move in to the building in 2020,” said Richard Prigg, principal of Queue Solutions.
“Queue Solutions manufactures QueuePro retracting belt barriers which feature design innovations in materials, braking technology, belt lock design and base profile. We look forward to completing our new facility in Bohemia so that we can continue to be the leader in customer queue design,” said Pedro Rivera. “We appreciate Bob’s attention to every detail, and are confident that the new facility will meet our growing needs for industrial space.”
The new building is comprised of a one-story warehouse with two loading doors and a tailboard dock. The design features a Beaux-Arts style exterior, high vaulted arched windows in the front – with a bumped out entrance. There is a plaza entry in the front, and the ceiling height will be 22’6” to accommodate industrial uses such as cranes and lifts. Birnbaum was heavily involved the design. The building will be completed in the summer of 2020.
“New construction is still alive and well on Long Island. We hope to work with other companies looking for similar build-to-suit projects,” Birnbaum said.
