Greenwich Village Chocolatier Opts for Move to Brooklyn
Koppers Specialty Chocolate, a company based in Greenwich Village since 1937, is relocating to Liberty View Industrial Plaza, a 1.8-million-square foot building in the Sunset Park section of the borough.
“It’s the classic development story,” Frederic Stein of Pinnacle Realty, who represented Koppers owner Jeff Alexander with colleague Ariel Castellanos, told Commercial Observer. “[Mr. Alexander] was pounded consistently by folks wanting to develop his six-story loft building into residential. He’s probably one of the few remaining manufacturers on the west side of Greenwich Village.”
