QUEENSBURY — Just Goods has received approval for its proposal to set up shop in a building at Dix Avenue, but an official is not saying much about the company’s future plans.
The Queensbury Planning Board on Tuesday approved the proposal by the company, which makes Just Water, to lease a 52,000-square-foot building at 276 Dix Ave. to house the manufacturing and warehousing of its products.
The board did not place any conditions on the approval.
Just Goods officials have not decided whether this space is in addition to or in place of its current facility in the former St. Alphonsus Church on Broad Street in Glens Falls.
Kara Rubin, Just Goods vice president for brand and product strategy, would not discuss specifics on Wednesday.
“For right now, our lease hasn’t been signed yet so I’m not able to comment on any specifics. Once that happens, I’ll be able to provide more detail,” she said in an email.
Rubin said previously that the company needs to expand capacity in order to make more of its current products and introduce new products into the market.
Just Goods is going to lease the space, which is owned by the New York Job Development Authority, which is an arm of Empire State Development. The property is tax exempt. It is managed by Levack Real Estate under a master lease arrangement. Mark Levack said previously that his firm has ownership in all ways except title and is responsible for improvements to the property. At the end of the master lease, which expires in three years, his firm buys the property for $1.
Levack said that Just would receive the benefit of an under-market lease because the property is tax exempt.
Other tenants currently at the property are the CMJ accounting firm and Square Nail Rustics.
Glens Falls Hospital has been leasing a portion of the space to store medical records and equipment, but no longer needs as much room as records are being digitized.
