Robison Energy Moving HQ to Port Chester
Real Estate In-Depth | February 2019
PORT CHESTER—Robison Energy, LLC is relocating its corporate headquarters from Elmsford to the Gateway Plaza office building in Port Chester.
The long-term lease deal for approximately 11,000 square feet of space at Gateway Plaza (55 South Main St.) in Port Chester was announced by Jamie Schwartz, executive vice president of GHP Office Realty, LLC, an affiliate of Houlihan-Parnes Realtors, LLC, which represented Robison in the transaction.
The office space will serve as Robison’s new headquarters and is located a block away from the firm’s relocated delivery, service and warehouse space at 45 Ryan Ave. in Port Chester, which is next to the Purdy Avenue oil terminal. Schwartz also represented Robison in that lease transaction as well.
Robison will be relocating its headquarters from 15,000 square feet of office and warehouse space at 500 Executive Blvd. in Elmsford located in Mack-Cali’s Cross Westchester Executive Park. That location has served as Robison’s headquarters since 1990.
Last year, Robison signed a lease for a 16,400-square-foot industrial building, a 2,750-square-foot warehouse building and a 35,000-square-foot contiguous on-site parking/storage lot located at 45 Ryan Ave. consolidating its delivery, service and warehouse operations from Mount Kisco and Mount Vernon.
Schwartz said of the Robison lease deal in Port Chester, “The completion of Robison’s office lease at Gateway Plaza is a culmination of Robison’s consolidation plan that we jointly planned over the last few years and now have successfully executed. Gateway Plaza became a viable option for its office space after Ed DeLaurentis and his partners acquired the building over the summer and invested capital into the building’s infrastructure, grounds, parking lot and appearance. Robison will occupy the entire fourth floor.”
Portchester Gateway LLC, the ownership entity of DeLaurentis and his partners, purchased the 40,000 square foot building in August 2018 for $4.25 million.
“We are excited to be moving our entire operation to Port Chester. By having our entire operation, executives, administrators, service department and delivery department in one area, literally walking distance from one location to the other, as well as being in the Port Chester Central Business District and walking distance to the Metro-North Train station is something we planned to do for years.” said Dan Singer, president of Robison. “Once we are fully moved into both properties, Robison will be leasing over 30,000 square feet of space and bringing approximately 150 jobs to Port Chester.”
