The Kohl property solved all my company's needs - dynamic space in our home state and all the tax benefits afforded by the Empire Zone
(PRWEB) December 10, 2008
Kohl Solutions, the Teaneck, NJ-based property development and management firm, is pleased to announce the "topping-off" of its latest property, Kohl Industrial Park, 225 North Route 303 in Congers, NY, marking a significant addition to Rockland county's designated Empire Zone, which took place Wednesday, October 22 at 3:00 pm.
The ceremony commemorated the rising of the final steel beam topping off the 252,000 square foot building.
"Because of its ideal location, near to key bridges and highways and in the coveted Empire Zone, Kohl Industrial Park is a wonderful vehicle to help more bring businesses and employees to New York," said Kohl Solutions founder Leonard Kohl.
In addition to its central location, the building also boasts thirty foot ceilings, providing, according to Kohl, "a full pallet's more storage than the average industrial space."
"Fifty years ago, Leonard Kohl developed his first property, Whitewood Estates, here in Rockland," said Kohl Solutions President, Alan Litt, "The development of Kohl Industrial Park happily brings our company full circle."
Kohl Solutions itself will be the first tenant in the new building and two others have already signed on as well. Its first outside tenant is Casabella, an award-winning designer and manufacturer of cleaning tools, kitchen and bath accessories and organizing products.
Founder and CEO Bruce Kaminstein is excited about the new space since it will allow him to house all 60 of his employees under one roof. "The Kohl property solved all my company's needs - dynamic space in our home state and all the tax benefits afforded by the Empire Zone," said Kaminstein.
Steve Zavagli, President and CEO of the second signed tenant, WynnStarr, the leading provider of creative, savory flavor and food products for nearly 20 years, is looking at the new headquarters as the perfect facility for his company's technical labs and sales and administration.
"The new space will help us expand and showcase our capabilities to our customers in a well thought-out and truly scenic setting," said Zavagli.
Celebration attendees included Rockland County Executive, Honorable C. Scott Vanderhoef; Clarkstown Town Supervisor, Honorable Alexander J. Gromack; President and CEO of Rockland Economic Development Corporation, Ron Hicks; and Steven Porath, Director of Economic Development for REDC, who each signed a symbolic "final beam" to be placed somewhere in the facility at a later date. Immediately following the ceremony, guests were served coffee and refreshments.
