Leave a comment

Highlighting a century of progress, the Briarwood Organization continues its work on important new projects.

To mark its first 100 years, the fourth-generation, family-owned company has begun construction on Briarwood Plaza II, a Class-A office building located at 36-29 Bell Boulevard, with 24,000-square-feet of prime space.

“Our first office building, Briarwood Plaza at 36-35 Bell Boulevard, has been a successful amenity for the

Queens community for more than a decade,” points out Vincent Riso, president and a third generation principal. “It was apparent that the timing was right for additional office space to meet the ever-changing needs of the communities at large.”

The state-of-the-art facility features floor sizes ranging from 4,800- to 6,650 rentable square feet, plus on-site parking and carries a 15-year ICAP tax abatement. Its construction and design are bolstered by such environmentally-forward measures as water conserving fixtures, low/no VOC paints and primers and LED lighting with motion sensors.

In addition, Briarwood Plaza II is close to the Long Island Railroad, as well as express and standard bus-service, and offers excellent access to Manhattan, Queens and Long Island.

Briarwood’s in-house property management team is spearheading the marketing and leasing efforts. Visit http://briarwoodorg.com/A_O_BriarwoodPlazaII.cfm.

In March, a resolution was adopted by the New York State Senate officially commemorating the Briarwood Organization for its 100th anniversary.

“For more than a century, Briarwood has played a key role in New York City’s development and we are perfectly-positioned to help shape its future as a developer and third-party general contractor,” said James Riso, vice president and a fourth generation principal of the firm. “Future tenants of Briarwood Plaza II will enjoy the convenience of area restaurants, banking institutions and other services, in addition to a central location near mass transit and major thoroughfares.”
