JLL Completes Sale of 1 Jebara Way in Monroe Township, NJ, to IPT

Firm inks lease with Animal Supply Co. to fill remaining 126,474 square feet at Class A, 293,420-SF warehouse/distribution facility in thriving Exit 8A submarket

ISELIN, N.J., April 27, 2015 — JLL recently completed the sale of the Class A, 293,420-square-foot 1 Jebara Way in Monroe Township, N.J., and also represented the new owner in leasing the remaining 126,474 square feet of space at the warehouse and distribution facility to Animal Supply Co.

Robert Kossar, executive managing director; David Knee, senior managing director; and Joel Lubin, managing director, all with JLL, represented both the seller, 1 Costco Way LLC, and the buyer, an affiliate of Industrial Property Trust Inc., in the transaction for an undisclosed amount. The team also represented IPT in a new, direct lease to Animal Supply. They worked closely with Dave Fazekas, managing director, and his team at IPT on both transactions.

“The Exit 8A submarket remains one of the most active industrial hotspots in the state,” said Lubin. “IPT acquired one of the newest warehouse and distribution facilities in the area, and all of the remaining space was leased up just after the sale was finalized. The IPT team demonstrated exceptional professionalism in getting the lease and sale done almost simultaneously.”

Animal Supply Co., a wholesale distributor of pet food and supplies, will open a new distribution facility at 1 Jebara Way to serve its customers in the Northeast. The tenant was represented by Kyle Eaton, associate director at Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.
Bonita Warehouse LLC leases the remainder of the space at 1 Jebara Way, occupying a total of 166,946 square feet.

The single-story 1 Jebara Way totals 293,420 square feet of warehouse and distribution space, along with approximately 12,000 square feet of office space. The property was constructed in 2004 as a build-to-suit for Paco Sportswear using precast construction techniques. It features 36-foot ceiling heights, 24 fully equipped truck loading dock doors and 20 trailer parking spaces. The facility is completely fenced, and offers interior and exterior video surveillance.

The Class A warehouse and distribution facility is located on Jebara Way at Route 619, near the intersection of Route 698. The building is just one mile from Exit 8A on the New Jersey Turnpike.
