Colliers International Group Inc. has been named exclusive leasing agent for the headquarters building in Greenburgh of Danone North America, which plans to relocate its operations and about 400 employees to downtown White Plains next year.
Owned by Alfred Weissman Real Estate Inc. in Harrison, the 127,000-square-foot, Class A office building at 100 Hillside Ave. is being marketed as potential headquarters space for a single occupant or as space that can be divided for multiple tenants, according to Colliers.
A brokerage team from the Stamford office of Colliers that includes Al Gutierrez, Michael Siegel and Stephanie Coleman is heading the leasing assignment.
Siegel in a press release said 100 Hillside Ave. “offers the largest block of direct space in Westchester County on the I-287 corridor” and is equipped with full electrical back-up generation. “As such, it provides an ideal corporate headquarters and branding opportunity,” he said.
Alan Weissman, principal of Alfred Weissman Real Estate, said the landlord’s vision “is to provide a state-of-the-art facility which can accommodate the needs of varied industries. Whether it’s the new home to a medical center, bioscience, or corporate headquarters, Alfred Weissman Real Estate is committed to creating an environment for the needs of tomorrow.”
Danone in 2018 will move into 80,000 square feet of space in The Source at White Plains retail and office complex at 100 Bloomingdale Road. The yogurt maker plans to relocate 400 employees from Greenburgh and expects to add 150 jobs there within the next five years.
