Rockefeller Group has made another addition to its fast-moving construction pipeline, touting the start of a nearly 350,000-square-foot distribution center project in Burlington County.
The developer said the facility, located on Route 206 in Eastampton Township, will bring new high-end logistics space to the growing Exit 7 submarket along the New Jersey Turnpike. It expects to deliver the 345,600-square-foot project next fall, with plans calling for 36-foot clear ceiling heights, parking for 96 trailers and 384 cars and a 185-foot truck court with a 60-foot concrete apron, among other features.
The so-called Rockefeller Group Logistics Center Eastampton will occupy 27.64 acres.
“We are excited for the opportunity to expand our industrial development to central New Jersey with our newest project along the New Jersey Turnpike,” said Zachary Csik, director, real estate development for Rockefeller Group’s New Jersey and Pennsylvania region. “The Exit 8A submarket has seen record growth and absorption over the past five years and we are confident that tenants will look to Exit 7, the Burlington County submarket, and points south for Class A distribution space.”
Rockefeller Group purchased the property in September, noting that Burlington County has become a core market for users, developers and owners driven by its accessibility to New York and New Jersey ports, southern New Jersey and Philadelphia. The CBRE team of Tom Monahan, Gerard Monahan, Stephen D’Amato, Larry Schiffenhaus, Lauren Hageman and Ana Lazarides serves as the leasing agent for the development, which will also feature 54 dock doors with two drive-in doors, 4,000 square feet of office space, 3,000 amps of power and LED lighting.
Rockefeller Group has selected Blue Rock Construction as its general contractor, while Menlo Engineering Associates is the civil engineer and KSS Architects designed the building.
