There are no leaks in this warehouse.

Gotham Plumbing Supply has signed a five-year lease to take up 34,700 square feet of warehouse and office space at 18-19 Flushing Avenue in Ridgewood.

The building has 30 foot ceilings and was recently renovated with new lighting and concrete floors, the Commercial Observer reported. Gotham Plumbing’s showroom and offices will span about 4,000 square feet, while the warehouse and storage space will take up about 30,000 square feet.

Douglas Elliman Commercial’s Jon Smilowitz told the Commercial Observer that Ridgewood has become an increasingly attractive option for commercial warehouses as tenants get pushed out of neighborhoods such as Sunset Park and Long Island City.

Asking rent was about $20 per square foot.

Prolific condo developer Brookland Capital went to Queens for the first time last January with plans for two five-story apartment buildings in Ridgewood. There are also federal plans to clean up the neighborhood’s Superfund site and demolish businesses at the intersection of Cooper and Irving avenues.  [CO]Eddie Small
