Queens, NY-based Arch Auto Parts announced it doubled the footprint of its main distribution center from 30,000 to over 60,000 rentable square footage (RSF), located at its Ideal Queens Industrial Building, at 184-10 & 184-60 Jamaica Avenue in Jamaica, Queens, according to owners KABR Group (“KABR”) and Monocle Group.
“Doubling the size of our Queens center is critical to our growing regional footprint,” said Chris Bodh, owner and CEO of Arch Auto Parts. “We are excited to be working with the new ownership group on our company’s expansion in this great location.”
Ideal Queens, purchased by KABR and Monocle in February 2022, consists of more than 620,000 RSF, which is conveniently located with access to Manhattan, Long Island City, Long Island, JFK International Airport, LaGuardia Airport, and Brooklyn, according to the KABR Group. The warehouse and logistics buildings are equipped with 15 loading docks, multiple drive-in doors, 24/7 secured access, ceiling heights of up to 20’ clear, and on-site surface parking. Ideal Queens is situated on a major thoroughfare with accessibility to local routes as well as interstate highways. For a convenient commute, employees enjoy proximity to Jamaica Station, serviced by the E, J, M, and Z subway lines and the Long Island Railroad.
“Arch Auto Parts is a perfect fit for Ideal Queens. We are excited to be a part of their continued growth,” said Adam Altman, founder and managing partner of KABR.
The new owners have begun a comprehensive renovation that will transform the building into a class-A industrial center by improving the buildings infrastructure and tenant experience, KABR Group says. The improvements include a complete exterior restoration of the building façade including replacing original windows, installation of brand-new automatic freight and passenger elevators, complete bathroom remodeling, and upgrading of loading docks with full dock packages. The ongoing project will continue to transform the asset into a best-in-class multi-story light industrial, manufacturing, warehouse, and distribution facility in a highly supply-constrained New York City consumer market.
