Port Jefferson Station, NY The Crest Group LLC, headed by Enrico Scarda has announced within the past six months the following leases totaling over 60,000 s/f have been successfully executed. With the signing of these new leases the overall occupancy of the entire portfolio has never been higher. Total aggregate rent represents $1.6 million/year with an overall average of $25.50 per s/f which equates to $20 million added valuation to the portfolio.
“We are very fortunate to have a commercial mixed use portfolio that includes office, retail, medical, warehouse, self storage and industrial to cushion a downturn in any given segment,” said Scarda.
Aaron Smiles head of commercial leasing for Crest Group describes the last six months activity after the pandemic was announced as seeing pent up demand for commercial space building up. “People want to get back to work and collaborate in person with one another. After mandatory lock down for non-essential businesses there is a shift in the market with tenants working at home,” said Smiles.
Newly implemented precautions have been put in place by Crest to reduce tenants adversity to returning back to work. Special attention to daily office cleaning including disinfection of all offices/work stations and common areas with the addition to HEPA approved HVAC filtration systems are being utilized. “We are trying to incorporate precautions covering all aspects from frequently touched areas, air filtration systems and social distancing practices,” said Smiles.
