NEW YORK, September 8, 2020JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has secured Dune Real Estate Partners as a joint venture equity partner and $105 million of predevelopment debt  financing on behalf of Turnbridge Equities for Bronx Logistics Center, a 14.2-acre development site located at 980 East 149th St. in the Bronx. The development site is strategically positioned in the Hunts Point submarket with access to over 17 million people within a half-hour drive.

Representing Turnbridge Equities in the equity recapitalization were Senior Managing Director Andrew Scandalios; Senior Director Tyler Peck; and Vice President Thomas Pryor. JLL’s Senior Managing Director Christopher Peck; Senior Director Peter Rotchford; and Vice President Kristin Knapp arranged the debt financing.

The proposed development Bronx Logistics Center will be a state-of-the-art, 1.2-million-square-foot, four-story last-mile distribution facility featuring 70 loading docks, 1,400 parking spaces and clear heights up to 28 feet. Bronx Logistics Center is conveniently located close to I-278, which offers easy connection to I-87 and I-95, and is less than two miles from the Hunts Point Food Distribution Center, one of the largest wholesale distribution centers in the world.

“Same-day delivery is expected to increase from 2 percent to over 25 percent of e-commerce transactions by 2025, which has now accelerated due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Scandalios said.  “This facility’s location, access to rail and market-leading property specifications position it as a best-in-class multi-story logistics facility poised to capitalize on the increasing need for rapid delivery times to consumers.”
