NEW YORK CITY—Two full city blocks at 12555 and 12595 Flatlands Ave. in Brooklyn, NY are being developed into nearly 200,000 square feet of high volume, automated industrial warehouses. Wildflower Ltd. is creating a two-building, last-mile distribution center, called the Brooklyn Logistics Center. The facilities are scheduled to open in October 2019.

The company’s president Adam Gordon says, “E-Commerce is completely disrupting the supply chain. Amazon, Walmart and their generation of e-commerce competitors are in a high-speed arms race to rush everything from shoes to groceries to their customers. Large, modern, automated warehouses located in major urban areas are essential to this strategy. Until now, New York has been late to adopt this necessary new model of last mile warehousing.”

Jones Lang LaSalle is the exclusive leasing agent for the Brooklyn Logistics Center, with Rob Kossar and Leslie Lanne providing representation.

Following the $187 million sale of part of Wildflower’s self-storage portfolio last year, Wildflower and its sister company Madison Development, both owned by Adam Gordon and Matt Dicker, have been building self-storage and industrial properties in New York City.

JLL notes that this latest warehouse project and other last mile sites in Wildflower’s portfolio will rapidly bring goods to millions of New York City residents and create hundreds of jobs.
