General contracting Eastman Cooke & Associates has completed the construction of two luxury automobile dealerships in Glen Cove and Brooklyn, after the projects were delayed by the pandemic.
The new developments have sales centers and electric vehicle charging stations for Jaguar and Land Rover brands.
The 80,000-square-foot Glen Cove dealership at 70 Cedar Swamp Road has a 40,000-square-foot service center and separate 40,000-square-foot sales office. The 100,000-square-foot Coney Island dealership is at 809 Neptune Avenue.
“The completion of these two exciting projects represents the culmination of nearly three years of stops and starts due to COVID restrictions and supply chain challenges,” Peter Morandi, CEO of Eastman Cooke & Associates, said in a company statement. “Because of the timeline, each project required great flexibility to meet changing regulations and a stronger focus on sustainability, which we were happy to accommodate.”
Eastman Cooke, which has offices in Amityville and Manhattan, was joined by consultants on the Glen Cove project, including The Eagleton Kathe Company, the owner’s representative; SNS Architects & Engineers, the design architect and civil engineer; Omdex Engineering, the MEP engineer; and VHB Engineering, which did the entitlement work.
“Fortunately, we had already implemented our project development platforms, which enabled us to complete the deep foundations and structural steel work quickly and efficiently,” April Intrabartola, vice president of Eastman Cooke & Associates, said in the statement. “Despite the pandemic-related hiatus, we hardly missed a beat, and the finished projects perfectly reflect these exclusive brands.”
