“Our focus in this region continues to be to amass a portfolio of properties that offers users premium parking and port and population access,” said PJ Charlton, CenterPoint’s senior vice president of investments.
In addition to ramping up its investments in one of the country’s hottest markets, CenterPoint is also constructing a speculative development in the shadow of Port Newark. 49 Rutherford Street will be a 185,856 square foot facility with 46 dock doors, a 40-foot clear-height, and of course, one of the features CenterPoint seeks in its infill acquisitions: ample parking and outdoor storage.
Demand for industrial space in New Jersey shows no signs of cresting any time soon. That gave CenterPoint’s leadership confidence that building on spec was a sound investment, especially when coupled with the development’s prime location and a best-in-class design.
“The activity we are seeing in North Jersey has been tremendous with a sub-one percent vacancy rate along the New Jersey Turnpike corridor,” said Ronel Borner, CenterPoint’s senior vice president of development. “We’re seeing interest not just from the top two or three top e-commerce giants, we’re seeing it from every size of tenant trying to grow along with them. We’re seeing demand from a wide variety of users, and we think it is just going to continue,” Borner finished.
