Dermody Properties Celebrates Groundbreaking in New Jersey
Dermody Properties and Great Point Investors, LLC celebrated the groundbreaking on a new multi-tenant facility in LogistiCenter Logan, the developer’s 5.5-million-square-foot industrial park.
The facility is located at 1110 Commerce Boulevard and will total 171,600 square feet. The site is situated prominently at the entrance to LogistiCenter Logan. Construction is expected to be complete in June 2015. Upon completion, the facility will be fully operational and ideally suited for e-commerce, food and beverage, and consumer product warehousing and distribution operations. It will feature 32 feet of clear height, 106 car parking spaces and 39 trailer parking spaces.
“This facility is the first we have broken ground on as part of our new master plan for LogistiCenter Logan,” said Gene Preston, partner, Dermody Properties East Region Office. “It is the first of many groundbreakings we hope to host here in the coming years as we continue to develop industrial facilities to meet the demand in this versatile market.”
LogistiCenter Logan is located halfway between New York City and Washington, D.C., in the heart of the Northeast Transportation Corridor. This location provides exceptional access to I-295, the New Jersey Turnpike, the Pennsylvania Turnpike, I-476 and the Eastern Seaboard. Additionally, the industrial park is within 15 miles of the Delaware River ports in Camden, Philadelphia and Wilmington.
Great Point Investors is the strategic capital partner on the project, and Blue Rock Construction is serving as Dermody Properties’ construction partner. Marc Isdaner, Michael Zerbe and Mark Chubb of Colliers International are marketing the property.
