In an expansion play that will nearly double its regional operation – for the second time in less than two years – O’Neill Logistics has leased 221,000 square feet at 130 Interstate Blvd. in South Brunswick. Cushman & Wakefield brokered the relocation lease, which will result in the third-party logistics firm moving its New Jersey operation from two addresses in Avenel to the Exit 8A submarkets.
Cushman & Wakefield industrial leasing specialists Dan Badenhausen and Andrew Stypa, based in Cushman & Wakefield’s Edison, New Jersey, office, represented O’Neill Logistics in the long-term transaction. The team maintains a long-standing relationship with the company’s senior management.
Founded in early 2012 through the merger of O’Neill Consultants, ONF Systems, Metro Logistics and the California operation of ADI Logistics, O’Neill Logistics offers core competencies in logistics, transportation, warehousing, e-commerce fulfillment and supply chain management.
“This company is on an incredible growth trajectory,” Badenhausen said. “With tight available supply and rising rents on the north end of the turnpike, Exit 8A was an ideal landing spot for O’Neill Logistics’ headquarters and warehouse operations. The firm will maintain a truck terminal within minutes of Port Elizabeth and Port Newark. This combination will enable it to continue to expand its comprehensive service to the New York regional marketplace.”
O’Neill Logistics joins co-tenants FedEx and Home Depot at 130 Interstate Blvd., which is owned by Terreno Realty Corp. Nathan Demetsky from JLL served as landlord broker in negotiating the recent transaction.
Robert O’Neill, owner and chief executive stated, “This expansion facility, as well as recent expansion in Southern California and Atlanta, GA, will allow our continued growth in the e- fulfillment vertical.”Related Articles:
