Blue Hill Plaza Accommodates New York Business Need Disaster Recovery, Back Up Space

Redundant Reliable Power and Strategic Location Enable Class A Office Complex to Remain Fully Operational During Hurricane Sandy

For companies in search of strategically located and secure disaster recovery or back-office commercial space, Glorious Sun Robert Martin, LLC recently announced that Blue Hill Plaza, its two-building, class A office complex in Pearl River, N.Y., is now offering opportunities to accommodate both temporary and long-term requirements.

Redundant reliable power enabled Blue Hill Plaza to remain operational during Hurricane Sandy. 

Ideally situated less than an hour from New York City and within a short drive to both Northern New Jersey and Connecticut, Blue Hill Plaza features redundant power from two 69,000-volt underground feeders exclusively dedicated to the property, as well as redundant fiber infrastructure, an on-site data center, high-capacity HVAC systems that are backed up by a UPS generator, and an on-site utility substation exclusive to Blue Hill.

The complex currently offers immediate opportunities for companies with requirements ranging from 10,000 square feet to more than 100,000 square feet in Two Blue Hill Plaza, including availabilities for shorter-term or monthly lease durations.

“Blue Hill Plaza’s highly strategic location, extensive power capability, dedicated, experienced on-site property management staff, and the property’s elevation, has enabled the complex to remain fully operational throughout its history, including during both Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and Hurricane Irene in 2011,” stated Timothy M. Jones, managing director/partner of Robert Martin Company. “Additionally, Robert Martin Company and Glorious Sun form a well capitalized partnership that is strongly positioned to offer highly competitive rates and terms, making Blue Hill Plaza the ideal solution for a wide variety of back-office and disaster recovery users.”

Stated Basel Azzam, vice president, engineering of Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc.: “The benefits to our company of being located in Blue Hill Plaza, especially during last year’s hurricane when we were able to maintain full operations without disruption, have been significant. Unlike many properties in the area that experienced power outages and flooding as a result of Hurricane Sandy, Blue Hill Plaza’s location, responsive on-site management and dedicated, redundant power ensured that we could continue to run our day-to-day business activities.”

Blue Hill Plaza consists of two class A office buildings totaling 1.1 million square feet. The ownership is a partnership of Westchester County-based Robert Martin Company and Hong Kong- and Manhattan-based real estate company, Glorious Sun. Mack-Cali Realty Corporation is responsible for leasing and managing the complex.

Blue Hill Plaza provides tenants direct access to numerous on-site amenities such as retail establishments, a childcare center, fitness club, café, and ample parking. The office complex is located off Veterans Memorial Dr. between the Tappan Zee and George Washington bridges with convenient access to Interstates 80, 87, 95 and 287, as well as the Garden State and Palisades parkways.

You would think a big company like Verizon would look at that space they have a lot of mainframes.
