Larken Associates is set to begin construction on a four-building, 150,000-square-foot flex industrial park in Flemington, where leasing is already underway.
Located at 115 River Road, the campus known as Flemington Junction Business Center is slated to open in late 2022. The developer is now marketing the 29-acre site to users ranging from 1,250 to 40,000 square feet in size, offering buildings with 32-foot clear ceiling heights, dedicated tailboards and drive-ins and a location one mile from Route 31, among other features.
Larken’s in-house construction division known as Core Enterprises is overseeing the project, which is 25 percent preleased.
“As prime industrial development sites continue to dry up, creativity will be key in identifying opportunities to build much-needed industrial space in New Jersey,” Larken Associates CEO and President David Gardner said. “With ample connectivity and favorable demographics, we see Flemington as a strong market and look forward to creating a home that the area’s growing businesses can be proud to call home.”
The Branchburg-based firm detailed the project on Tuesday, touting additional features such as wide column spacing, heavy power, LED warehouse lighting and separate utilities and entrances for each tenant. Plans also call for 270 parking spaces and a 360-degree site circulation design to ensure streamlined traffic flow and enhanced accessibility.
Tenants, meantime, will have access to regional arteries such as interstates 78 and 287 and routes 22 and 202, Larken said. They will also be midway between New York City and Philadelphia.
