Dermody Properties to Develop a Three-building Logistics Park in New Jersey

Dermody Properties

Dermody Properties will begin construction this spring on a 154-acre park for a planned, three-building development in Woolwich Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey. The project will be marketed as LogistiCenter℠ at Woolwich. CBRE has been selected as the exclusive agent for the park. Once complete, the three buildings will offer 262,200 square feet, 552,585 square feet and 336,700 square feet available for lease. The Class A, state-of-the-art facilities will each feature a 36 to 40-foot clear height, build-to-suit office space, ESFR fire protection systems, 50 to 110 dock high doors, drive-in doors and ample trailer and car parking.

Dermody Properties will make significant improvements to the intersection in conjunction with the development of the park. A recent labor study done by CBRE, in conjunction with Dermody Properties, shows that there is a good balance of residents with manufacturing or distribution experience, recent high school graduates looking for entry-level roles, and college graduates looking for advanced or leadership roles, all within a 30-minute drive of this property’s location. LogistiCenter℠ at Woolwich is located less than two miles from Interstate-295 and less than three miles from Interstate-95. Because of its proximity to Philadelphia and Wilmington, DE, this direct highway access will allow customers to reach 33% of the U.S. population in a single day’s drive and three million people within a 40-minute drive. Surrounding national companies include Amazon, Exxon, Target, Lineage Logistics and XPO Logistics. Dermody Properties has a history of success in the region, exemplified in part by the development of LogistiCenter℠ at Logan, a Class A business park with more than 5.5 million square feet of warehouse, distribution and manufacturing space that is also located in Southern New Jersey.

RanchHarbor and Manhattan West Real Estate Acquire Industrial Infill Property in Signal Hill

RanchHarbor

RanchHarbor, a real estate investment firm based in Newport Beach, Calif., and Manhattan West Real Estate, a fully integrated real estate investment and management firm based in Los Angeles, today announced their joint venture (JV) partnership in the acquisition of a .79‐acre value-add industrial property located in Signal Hill, Calif. The property consists of two single-tenant industrial buildings totaling 18,682 square feet with a shared, secured yard. The JV purchased the property off-market, substantially below replacement cost and at an attractive basis. It acquired one building with substantial term remaining on the lease and one building vacant at closing. The business plan is to perform deferred maintenance and capital improvements to the property including “white boxing” of the vacant building to improve its marketability and make it move-in ready. “We are pleased to partner with Manhattan West, a well-respected operator with a solid track record, on this investment,” said John Meek, managing principal at RanchHarbor. “This is a rare opportunity to invest in Signal Hill, a submarket with extremely low vacancy rates and a short supply of industrial spaces of this size and specifications. The property is an excellent addition to RanchHarbor’s growing portfolio as we continue to find undervalued opportunities in the ‘small cap’ sector with proven operating partners that know their markets well.” RanchHarbor provided a full capital stack solution for the transaction. The company’s capital markets advisory platform, RH Advisors sourced a 36-month, attractively priced, fixed-rate non-recourse bridge loan from a bank lender. This debt structure will allow for maximum flexibility in executing the business plan while mitigating exposure to interest rate fluctuations. The property is located at the northeast corner of Walnut Ave. and E. Burnett St., proximate to the San Pedro Bay Port complex and easily accessible to air freight travel at the Los Angeles International and Long Beach Airports.
