By Journal Staff


SKANEATELES FALLS — The 159,247-square-foot former Welch Allyn building, situated on about 59 acres and located at 4619 Jordan Road in Skaneateles Falls, was recently sold.

Kohilo Wind LLC purchased the property in August, according to a news release from Cushman Wakefield/Pyramid Brokerage Company, which helped the arrange the sale.

Michael Kalet and George W. Lee of Cushman Wakefield/Pyramid Brokerage exclusively marketed and facilitated the sale of the property on behalf of the seller.

The purchase price and other financial details of the sale were not provided.

Kohilo Wind ( is a manufacturer of non-traditional wind turbines that require less than 3 miles per hour of wind velocity to operate. The company says its turbines are “unique” in that they condition the wind through a diffuser system not used in traditional turbines. That harnesses the energy more efficiently and increases power production, even at low wind speeds, it says.

The company sells turbines for rooftops, grain silos, gazebos, towers, ballasts, mobile wind trailers, lighting poles, boats, RVs, ATVs, golf carts, and new handheld wind-powered cell-phone chargers, according to its Facebook page.
