Eye On Real Estate

Greenpoint – it's quite the haven for artists. Now a firm from London has picked it as a place to store art.
Art moving and storage company Cadogan Tate has rented a building at 301 Norman Ave. as its first Brooklyn location. The firm has facilities in Sunnyside and other nearby Queens sites.
“They need a high-quality, high-ceiling, high-security building,” said Jeffrey Unger, a director at Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates, who represented landlord Barry Swidler in the deal. The ceilings are 26 feet high. Swidler is moving his company, Long Island Carpet Cleaners, out to make way for Cadogan Tate.
The asking rent was $14 per square foot for the 67,500 square-foot space. As a bonus, the building comes with a parking lot.
Grant Dolgin – a fourth-generation family member of the real estate brokerage – and colleague Dmitri Gourianov represented Cadogan Tate in the transaction.
Last fall another art moving and storage business, Cirker's, took space at 106 Bayard St. on the Williamsburg-Greenpoint border. That deal was also handled by Kalmon Dolgin.
