Carlo’s Bakery will lease 32,000 square feet of ground-floor space at Lackawanna, as the building renovates 200,000 square feet of retail space for its The Shops at Lackawanna project, which is being touted as a major new retail plaza for Jersey City. Valastro’s new space will be used for distribution and filming, and it will also allow Carlo’s to take internet orders from customers all over the country. Lackawanna Center is a 1.3 million square foot retail/office/industrial complex situated directly outside the Holland Tunnel in Jersey City, NJ. Located at 629 Grove Street and bordered by Jersey Avenue, Sixteenth Street, Eighteenth Street, and Marin Boulevard, the property is blocks from Hoboken and close to NJ Transit Light Rail and PATH trains. The 13 acre site also includes two ground level 300-car parking lots, additional parking on the second level, and an elevated rail trestle which runs three city blocks. The property’s eight-story building is comprised of reinforced concrete construction, brick exterior walls and glass windows with a floor thickness of 21” solid concrete at each level.
