The "new" building was originally built for the Lackawanna Railroad and is equipped with foot thick concrete floors, direct rail access on two levels, truck bays, etc. Much of the original building was designed as drive in freezer space for food traffic.
Sometime next year, Buddy Valastro will be expanding his century-old family baking business to the Lackawanna Center, an 8-story industrial building outside the Holland Tunnel on Grove Street in Jersey City.
The "Boss" will take over 30,000 square feet on the ground floor of the Center in order to build a state-of-the-art baking facility and distribution center. A larger headquarters for the bakery's administrative offices is also in the works.
