The Nepperhan Business Center’s position on the Saw Mill River, with the Hudson River close by, provides for its tenants prime location. Yonkers has long nurtured her accessibility to and from New York City, and the immediate proximity to the train and water ferry system certainly are effective in making this possible. The Glenwood and Greystone train stations are nearby, and express bus service from MTA and Bee Line can be accessed right in front of the building. The facility’s ease of access allows shipping and receiving to be incredibly simple as well.
Industry has shaped Yonkers’ economy and has provided the city with employment since the nineteenth century, when Alexander Smith and Sons Carpet Mills began manufacturing carpets, as well as the looms on which they were weaved, right here at this complex. The entire complex consisted of 38 sprawling acres with more than 40 buildings contributing. At the peak of production the facility was the largest carpet manufacturer in the world, employed more than 7,000 people, and required wool from 15,000 sheep each day. As a result of all its success and contribution to the area’s economy, these formidable structures at 540 and 578 Nepperhan Avenue have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Yonkers intends to continue the industrial tradition here in the Valley and remains competitive in the industrial marketplace. While the area lacks the available land to allow for newly-constructed facilities, much creative redesigning and redevelopment amounting to several million dollars has taken place here at 540 and 578 Nepperhan Avenue, providing these buildings with new purpose. The opportunity and potential available for the diverse set of businesses and industries needing finished, affordable space benefits the city as well, as vacant, unusable buildings are transformed into commerce-creating hubs of activity. You will see, as have many of the tenants operating here currently, the affordability and functionality available here is better than new!
Current warehouse, manufacturing, and light industrial tenants leasing here at the Nepperhan Business Center are attracted to the location and availability of flexible and divisible space within the industrial district. Examples of the numerous and highly diverse tenants operating here currently or in recent years include Valenti Neckwear Company, Inc., Kettles and Company, Inc., various piano restoration and manufacturing companies, Waterbed Access, Inc., Edin Adanalic (vending machine manufacturer), Dayleen Intimates, Inc., Air Engineering Filter Products, Victor Rothman for Stained Glass, and many others. The upper floors of 540 and 578 Nepperhan Avenue consist of offices and YoHo Artist Studios, the wide range of tenants working here providing evidence of the buildings’ extraordinary features and diversifiable space.
