Rechler Equity Partners, the largest owner of commercial real estate in Suffolk County, announced the signing of a long-term lease at the first of 13 micro-units at 215 Roger’s Way in the Hampton Business District. Technical Glazing Solutions, a high-end designer and installer of custom-made windows, will be moving into more than 2000 square feet of the Westhampton Beach business park’s third completed building.
“The micro units at 215 Roger’s Way were specifically designed to accommodate a variety of small local businesses just like Technical Glazing Solutions,” said Mitchell Rechler, co-managing partner of Rechler Equity Partners. “These types of spaces are vitally important to supporting the growth of local small-to-mid-sized companies as they provide all the infrastructure features of a large facility for a fraction of the cost, and provide a professional environment to conduct business.”
The owners of Technical Glazing Solutions, John Graziano and Tom Cleary, have been solving technical fenestration challenges on distinguished luxury homes for the past 30 years. Currently running operations from several adjunct locations, the company provides residential window systems to clients living along coastal communities from California to the Hamptons. Aside from the physical manufacturing of the windows, which is completed by select European companies that utilize advanced technology and materials, Technical Glazing Solutions designs, engineers, and develops specifications, and manages the installation process.
“Our business has grown in leaps and bounds these last couple of years, so working out of our homes and some smaller office space is no longer an option,” Graziano said. “We’ve looked at several locations on the East End and quickly realized that nothing on the market compared to the Hampton Business District. The location is perfect, the price was right, and the amenities and flexibility of the brand-new, clean space provides our company with endless options for future expansion.”
There’s 66,000 square feet of space at 215 Roger’s Way — a $10.8 million investment that caters to small-sized businesses that require less space than the typical industrial tenant. The newest building to the business park features units ranging from 2000 to 6500 square feet.
But a smaller-sized unit does not mean the tenant will have less access to a host of needed amenities for industrial businesses — there’s pre-built, ready-to-move-in units that feature 15 to 20 percent office space, 18-foot ceilings, 10×12 overhead doors servicing each unit, and sewer connectivity.
“We’ve received a lot of inquiries about this space, particularly from the trade industry, as these micro-units not only suit their needs, but are perfectly located to serve their East End clients,” said Gregg Rechler, co-managing partner of Rechler Equity Partners. “When you operate on the East End, you try to travel east of the canal as little as possible. The Hampton Business District provides a prime location, quality space, and valuable visibility.”
In addition to the 13 micro-units, there’s 30,000 square feet of Class-A office space that is currently being leased by ADS Management. With the current leases at 215 Roger’s Way, more than 50 percent of the building is occupied.
