Liberty Property Trust announced that it has signed an agreement with Uline to be the tenant of two buildings to be constructed in its new Liberty Business Center III in Upper and Lower Macungie townships. The two buildings will total around two million square feet.
Liberty will construct two build-to-suit warehouses for Uline, which leases space in four other Liberty-managed buildings in the Lehigh Valley.
“We are excited to begin the project in Liberty Business Center III, particularly as it is with our long-term tenant, Uline,” said Robert Kiel, senior vice president and city manager for Liberty Property Trust. “Having worked together for years on previous buildings, it is gratifying to again be able to provide them with a first-class development solution, which in this instance allows them to effectively consolidate their operations into a campus setting.”
Uline is a distributor of shipping, industrial and packaging materials that is headquartered in Wisconsin.
It will be taking up the entire square footage of the business center and will be its only tenant according to Kiel.
The new 200-acre development is on Mill Creek Road between Hamilton Boulevard and the Route 222 bypass.
Liberty plans to break ground on the buildings in June.
