My recent listing has been absorbed by Midtown Lumber at the price of $12 PSF with a 5 year modified gross lease. The satisfaction of seeing a building brought back to life with a little paint and retail front makes the long journeys of commercial leasing worth it.
One of Manhattan’s oldest lumberyards is coming to Jersey City. The venerable Midtown Lumber will celebrate the grand opening of its new warehouse and retail store on Friday, June 16th, with a ribbon-cutting, catered BBQ, and an appearance by Mayor Steven Fulop.
Brothers Paul and Larry Kopf first opened Midtown Lumber in 1962 on West 25th Street in a historic building that previously housed a horse stable and later, the old West Side Lumber warehouse. For over 55 years, Midtown was a favorite of contractors and apartment owners, developing a reputation for accurate cutting and prompt delivery.
