Cushman & Wakefield has been tapped to oversee leasing for a new 182,000-square-foot industrial building that is coming to Raritan Center in Edison, the firm said Friday.
The developer, Liberty Property Trust, is expected to complete the building at 1075 King George Post Road in April, Cushman & Wakefield said. Chuck Fern and Jason Barton, based in the commercial real estate services firm’s Edison office, are heading the leasing assignment.
“This building has been designed to meet the needs of today’s industrial space users — with modern tilt-up construction, 36-foot clear ceilings, 43 dock and two drive-in doors, and ample trailer and car parking,” Fern said in a prepared statement. He added that Liberty Property Trust has incorporated modern systems, including heavy power and early suppression fast response sprinklers.
The property is divisible, with office space that can be built to suit, Fern said. Tenants will benefit from strong highway visibility and multidirectional access, with a location just 1.5 miles from the New Jersey Turnpike and Interstate 287.
“Seven hotels, UPS and FedEx hubs, and bus and train service are among the amenities that draw users to this desirable business park,” Fern said. “Its proximity to Newark Liberty International Airport, Ports Newark and Elizabeth, and Manhattan make it an ideal site for regional distribution operations.”
