Bartlett Dairy will build a 54,000-sq.-ft. dairy distribution center in Queens on a portion of the JFK Airport’s North site.
The site is located between the Nassau Expressway and Rockaway Boulevard, near North Hangar Road in Queens.
The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and Bartlett received uniform land use review procedure approval for the disposition and development of the NYCEDC’s JFK North site.
The JFK North site is one of the largest city-owned manufacturing zoned properties. Bartlett’s development of the JFK North site will provide a permanent home for milk distribution within the five boroughs. Currently, milk distribution occurs in New Jersey and the products are then delivered to New York City by truck, according to the NYCEDC.
Development of the new distribution facility on the JFK North site is expected to create 70-90 construction jobs and 165 permanent jobs,
The project is expected to complete in fall 2020.
