Lee & Associates announces 526K sq.ft. lease at S. Brunswick distribution center

Lee & Associates New Jersey announced recently that it has arranged a 526,400-square-foot lease at a distribution center in South Brunswick.

The tenant, XPO Logistics, is a contract logistics company.

The property, 115 Interstate Blvd., is a big-box industrial warehouse within close access to the New Jersey Turnpike’s Exit 8A. The building previously served as the Tory Burch distribution center and before that was a distribution center for Children’s Place.

“Our client was looking for space that would allow them to serve the northeast & mid-Atlantic regional markets, have easy access to the N.J. Turnpike corridor, and close proximity to Port Newark/Elizabeth.  Demand for ‘state-of-the-art’ industrial space in North and Central New Jersey is high right now, but we were able to find a desirable location that fit our client’s needs,” Dave Saltzman, partner at Lee & Associates who arranged the deal, said.

“This wasn’t a straight lease transaction,  so some extra steps were needed. We had to work closely with Prologis, the property owner, to unravel a sublease of a sublease, in order to complete this long term transaction.  As part of the deal, there were also a substantial amount of building improvements and amenities that XPO inherited, including an extensive conveyor system and heavy duty narrow aisle racking.”
