New Lehigh Valley warehouse facility sells for $22.3M
JLL Capital Markets closed the sale of the multi-tenant industrial building in Hamburg, PA
PHILADELPHIA, June 8, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $22.3 million sale of a new, 149,632-square-foot multi-tenant bulk distribution warehouse facility at 336 Logistics Dr. in the Lehigh Valley community of Hamburg, Pennsylvania.
336 Logistics Dr. is situated on 13.95 acres within Hamburg Commerce Park, which is in a strategic logistics location with excellent transportation infrastructure and connectivity to major population centers. Situated just two miles south of Interstate 78 in Hamburg, the property is located along Route 61, providing north-south access to Reading. Additionally, the Lehigh Valley location places the asset in one of the most sought-after industrial markets in the country due to limited opportunities to purchase buildings and land.
Completed in 2020, the warehouse building features a 32-foot clear height, LED lighting, 24 overhead doors that are expandable to 33, two drive-in doors, ESFR fire protection and ample parking. The facility is fully leased to two tenants, S Walter Packaging and LTL Home Products.
The JLL Capital Markets team representing the sellers was led by Senior Managing Directors John Plower and Pete Pittroff and Director Ryan Cottone along with Senior Managing Director Jeff Lockard.
“336 Logistics Dr. represented a great opportunity to acquire a new generation warehouse within a master-planned industrial park,” Plower said. “Hamburg continues to see tremendous leasing velocity and an overwhelming demand from capital to gain control of product within this pocket of the Lehigh Valley market.”
