Company starts construction on logistics center off Route 33

The project involves construction of a 560,000-square-foot two-building complex off Route 33 in Bushkill Township near Wind Gap.

The two buildings, one at 350,000 square feet and another at 210,000 square feet, would include 101 trailer spaces and 325 parking spaces on 73 acres.

“The eastern side of the Valley is a desirable location,” said Gene Preston, east region partner in the Morristown, New Jersey office for Dermody Properties. The proximity to Route 33 also made the project attractive to the developers, he said.

“E-commerce has really been the game changer in creating additional demand in this market and other markets throughout the U.S.,” Preston said.

Preston said both buildings are spec buildings and do not have tenants yet. The space could fit tenants in the manufacturing, warehousing, distribution and e-commerce industries.

Vertek Construction Management of East Allen Township is the construction firm working on the design-build project, he said. MKSD architects of South Whitehall Township is the architectural firm.

He expects the first building to be complete by the end of the year and the second one shortly after.

He declined to disclose the estimated construction cost.

Dermody Properties also developed LogistiCenter at Midway in Bethel Township, a more than 1 million square-foot-warehouse in Berks County and LogistiCenter at 33, a 475,000-square-foot-industrial facility in Forks Township.
