A well-known plumbing and HVAC supplier has signed a nearly 300,000-square-foot lease at a two-building industrial property under construction in Piscataway.
In a transaction with Transwestern Development Co., General Plumbing Supply Inc. inked the long-term commitment at 330 South Randolphville Road some five months before the project’s completion. The 100-year-old distributor will occupy both buildings at the site, which include a ground-up, 151,748-square-foot warehouse and an existing 146,000-square-foot facility that is being fully renovated.
Avison Young’s Tim Cadigan, Matthew Turse and Grant Otto represented ownership, a joint venture of TDC and QuadReal Property Group. Ed English and Ron Ganter of Avison Young, along with Michael Schipper of The Blau & Berg Co., represented GPS.
“We are very proud that GPS has chosen Piscataway Logistics Center for its new headquarters, showroom and distribution center,” said Brian Banaszynski, regional partner with TDC’s Logistics Group. “Broad interest in this project underscores the strength and significance of New Jersey’s industrial real estate market, and we are confident that this state-of-the-art facility will provide the efficiencies and flexibility GPS was searching for in well-located, modern distribution space.”
With delivery slated for this fall, the complex will offer 36-foot clear ceiling heights, a combined 39 dock doors, ample car and trailer parking and a shared truck court depth of 185 feet, according to a news release. The 16-acre site is 40 miles from New York City and part of a still-growing industrial submarket along Interstate 287, with direct access to the highway at a four-way interchange.
Banaszynski noted that the project was approved at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the legal assistance of Bob Smith & Associates.
“Support for the project from Piscataway Mayor (Brian) Wahler, as well as the council, planning board and zoning and building department has been invaluable,” he said.
