Demand for industrial space on Long Island is outstripping supply. There's no shortage of reasons: lengthy approval processes, zoning (especially height) restrictions, antiquated buildings, distances between development sites and population centers, limits on trucking due to weight restrictions and traffic congestion, and plenty more.
There's also no shortage of potential solutions, and many agree that implementing them would have a positive ripple effect throughout Long Island's economy.
In this joint event organized by the Long Island chapters of CoreNet Global, IFMA and the U.S. Green Building Council, panelists will discuss creative approaches to managing these issues. They'll outline strategies to help meet the demand for industrial space and connect all the elements -- housing, transportation, and environmental well-being -- that are critical to sustained success.
