Delivery service moves to Ridgewood

By Gabriel Rom

LaserShip, a Virginia-based package delivery service and major Amazon contractor, signed a 10-year lease to relocate from Long Island City and fully occupy a Ridgewood warehouse as its newest distribution center,

The one-story factory at 16-70 Weirfield St. between Cypress and Wyckoff avenues in Ridgewood spans 40,800 square feet. Jack Yedid’s Yedid Brothers Realty has owned the property for more than 25 years, according to Department of Buildings records.

Asking rent for the space is roughly $17 per square foot, which is about average for distribution centers in the area, according to real-estate website The Real Deal. Asking rents for flex office space tend to be slightly higher, at $22 to $25 per square foot, the site says.

Pinnacle Realty’s David Junik and Mark Caso represented the landlord, while Arthur Spitalnick of the Kaufman Organization represented the tenant. Junik and Caso could not be reached for comment.

LaserShip specializes in same-day and next-day deliveries and, in addition to Amazon, its clients include Staples and Office Depot. The company has more than 60 locations, including two in the city.
