Prologis recently inked a deal to buy a large warehouse in Sunset Park for $60 million. The building will soon be home to the nonprofit City Harvest.

The market for warehouse sales has been hot thanks to a push from internet retailers — notably Amazon — to deliver items faster than ever. Industrial buildings and sites that can aid in last-mile delivery or serve as distribution centers saw brisk sales last year. Prologis’ plans for the Flushing Avenue address could not be determined.
