Project Type: Industrial - New Construction
Architect: Ware Malcomb


A joint venture between DH Property Holdings and Goldman Sachs Asset Management Private Real Estate has retained Hollister as design builder to lead the design, planning and construction of the first multi-level e-commerce distribution center on the East Coast.

Strategically located in the borough’s Red Hook waterfront district in Brooklyn, the 3-story, 370,620sf facility will provide key last mile distribution to meet the needs of manufacturers and retailers looking for next day delivery to the end user.

The 370,620sf facility is broken out into the following spaces:

  • 270,345sf industrial building with 130-foot truck courts on the first two levels accommodating full-size tractor trailers, ramps that go up to the second floor and elevators that bring a forklift to the third. The facility also features 28-foot ceilings and 33 loading doors.
  • 22,422sf office building with general offices, conference rooms and waiting area.
  • 77,853sf attached parking structure for 184 cars to accommodate employees.

640 Columbia Street will meet the demand for efficient warehouse and distribution facilities in urban infill locations providing end users with facilities that are currently not offered in the market. The project is expected to break ground in 2018.
