SolarX in former Pepsi-Cola building
There's a new enterprise in the former Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co.'s distribution site in Batavia, which was based in the Crickler Business Building. SolarX now occupies this property, located at 319 W. Main St., as its primary distribution center.
SolarX sunglasses and ornaments are sold in mall kiosks nationwide.
Ben Mancuso, managing director at Chas. Mancuso & Son, Inc., represented both sides of the transaction.
"We have repositioned the facitily as a full-service business center," Mancuso said, "since the transition we have signed deals (with) 35,000 ft. of warehouse/distribution space and 4,000 ft. of executive office suites.
Tenants share a receptionist, conference rooms and lunch rooms. Given the current climate, we are pleased with the activity and very happy to have SolarX operating in Western New York."
