An affiliate of Endurance Real Estate Group, LLC and CenterSquare Investment Management (“Endurance”) is pleased to announce the signing of a new 137,938 square foot lease at the 485 Distribution Center (“485DC”) in Shiremanstown, PA to a major national third party logistics provider (3PL). Lee & Associates of Eastern Pennsylvania represented both landlord and tenant in the transaction.

“This lease signed months before project completion, shows the strength of our project and the overall Central PA industrial market, particularly the Harrisburg West submarket. The new tenant is just one of many Fortune 500 companies who have located their manufacturing and distribution operations in the area. The attractive nature of this well-located, Class A product is desirable to many different types of tenants serving the Mid-Atlantic region and we look forward to strong continued leasing activity as we near completion of this re-development” said Albert J. Corr, Senior Vice President of Asset Management at Endurance.

The completion of the renovation and construction of the ±457,000 SF project at the 485 Distribution Center will occur in late August 2018. The remaining space availability totals ±318,873 SF of contiguous square footage that is currently demised into two spaces of ±210,956 SF and ±107,917 SF, respectively.

The entire facility will be equipped with an ESFR sprinkler system, high efficiency T-5 fluorescent lighting, a 188’ truck court, 60’ concrete dock apron, significant parking for cars and trailers, and an approximately 1 per 6,000 SF loading dock ratio at full build-out.

“This project presented an extremely rare opportunity to redevelop an existing industrial property in an infill section of the Harrisburg region in the Central PA industrial market, which continues to be highly coveted by both users and investors”, said David Erlbaum, VP of Acquisitions and Development at Endurance. “The location is irreplaceable, and we feel highly confident we will lease up the balance of the building in short order given the high demand for bulk warehouse space, especially for properties in close proximity to rooftops and a dense transportation network.”
