Construction is underway for a new 25,000-square-foot industrial building in Wayne, one of two that a development team is planning for a site just west of routes 23 and 202.
Locally based Donnelly Construction is spearheading the project at 441 Newark-Pompton Turnpike, with completion slated for spring 2023. According to previously announced plans, the facility will have 25-foot ceiling heights and a layout that includes 1,800 square feet of office and 2,080 square feet of mezzanine space.
Gensler is the architect for the planned two-building project at the 14.5-acre site. In an earlier announcement, the design team touted the parcel’s proximity to interstates 80 and 287 and Route 46.
“This development is a direct response to help meet the overwhelming demand for warehouse space in New Jersey given the growth in e-commerce and consumer spending habits over the course of the last 18 to 20 months,” said Chris Donnelly, vice president of Donnelly Construction, said late last year after the firm secured planning board approval.
