Construction is underway for a multistory distribution center at 640 Columbia in Brooklyn. Ware Malcomb is providing architectural design services for the project and working in collaboration with DH Property Holdings and Suffolk Construction.
640 Columbia will reportedly be the first multistory e-commerce distribution center on the East Coast. The three-story facility totals over 370,000 square feet and includes a warehouse, office space, two levels of truck docks, a mezzanine with parking and dedicated elevator service to the third floor.
The design of 640 Columbia is based on Ware Malcomb’s multistory industrial prototype, originally developed in 2017. Ware Malcomb has designed approximately 20 million square feet of multistory distribution projects since then in major markets across North America.
“Seeing this project progress from Ware Malcomb’s conceptual multistory prototype into construction is an incredible milestone for Ware Malcomb,” said Michael Bennett, principal of Ware Malcomb’s Northeast region.
