NAI James E. Hanson said Aug. 19 that it negotiated a lease for 12,000 square feet of industrial space at 15-01 Pollitt Drive in Fair Lawn for DoorDash.
Hanson’s Darren Lizzack and Randy Horning represented the landlord, 1501 Pollitt Drive LLC, and Cushman and Wakefield represented the food delivery platform in the transaction.
Since its founding in 2013, DoorDash has evolved from local door-to-door delivery facilitation to the largest food delivery service in the United States, with 1 million drivers representing 450,000 merchants serving 20 million consumers in 2020 alone.
Building upon its growth, DoorDash launched DashMart, a chain of virtual convenience stores equipped to deliver snacks, groceries, and other food-related products from partner businesses. Without a physical storefront, DashMart relies on well-located industrial warehouses in major metro areas suited to its storage and delivery needs.
Already open in major cities like Chicago, Dallas and Phoenix, DoorDash’s Fair Lawn location marks DashMart’s latest fulfillment center in the New York City area.
15-01 Pollitt Drive is a 126,000-square-foot, one-story industrial building located in Bergen County with easy access to the New York City metropolitan area via Interstate 80, Route 208 and the Garden State Parkway. DoorDash’s new space features 21-foot ceilings, ample parking and a loading dock with liftgate.
“This deal further underscores the high demand for industrial warehouse distribution facilities like 15-01 Pollitt,” said Lizzack. “The Northern New Jersey industrial market continues to be one of the most sought-after locations for distribution companies looking to reap the benefits of both the New York City and Bergen County markets, and we are thrilled to work with DoorDash to help them secure space well-suited to their continued growth.”
