Syracuse, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) January 07, 2011
Hackman Capital Partners, LLC. announced today that G&C Foods Distributors & Brokers. Inc., one of the largest food re-distributors in the Northeast, has leased the frozen food warehouse at 2407 Walters Road in Van Buren, New York. G&C Foods expects to begin operations in the 227,697 SF facility in February.
G&C is currently located at 245 Tex Simone Drive in Syracuse, and will retain that facility for storage overflow. "G&C is experiencing significant sales growth, and as a result, simply outgrew their regional distribution center in the central New York regional market. Our facility meets their expansion needs, and we are thrilled to have them," said Michael Hackman, CEO and Founder of Hackman Capital.
The cold-storage facility in Van Buren, previously occupied by The Penn Trafic Company, was purchased in 2007 as part of the $516 million National Industrial Portfolio, a joint venture formed by Hackman Capital Partners, LLC., Calare Properties and KBS Real Estate Investment Trust.
Penn Traffic also occupied two other area warehouses, which are now part of the National Industrial Portfolio. The 567,800 square foot, food-grade facility at 1200 State Fair Boulevard, renamed MetroWest Indsutrial Center last summer, is located at the intersection of I-690 and I-90 and is offering potential tenants 567,800 square feet of distribution/manufacturing space, divisible to 40,000 square feet. The second facility at 133 Jackson Avenue in Jamestown, New York, was renamed The Jackson Industrial Building, and has 200,000 square feet still available for lease.
