Vandale, leading importer of intimate apparel, takes 207K sq. ft. in South Brunswick off 8A

Vandale, a leading importer of intimate apparel and foundations, including daywear, sleepwear, activewear and shapewear, has signed a long-term lease for 207,021 square feet of warehouse space in South Brunswick, Duke Realty announced Tuesday.

The warehouse and distribution facility, located at 773 Cranbury South River Road, is within the Exit 8A submarket. Duke said the 488,884-square-foot cross-dock facility is now fully leased.

Ben Rosen, vice president of leasing and development for Duke Realty in New Jersey, said the facility is perfect for distribution.

“Over the past year, the nation’s supply chain has been tested and Duke Realty clients continue to look for opportunities to strengthen their logistics networks,” he said. “They want locations where they can get their products to customers with limited delay. 773 Cranbury South River Road is a modern facility located within central New Jersey’s premiere industrial submarket that enables Vandale to effectively serve its major U.S. retailer clients.”

Art Makris, senior vice president of Duke Realty’s Northeast region, said the firm sees no drop in demand anytime soon.

“We do not see the demand for well-located, high-quality logistics space waning anytime soon, given the growth of the e-commerce industry,” he said. “We count on our local broker partners to share insights into tenant needs and, together, we can quickly identify investment opportunities that meet those needs, further expanding our New Jersey portfolio.”

Vandale, which manages private label and national brands in every distribution channel and is a key supplier to major retailers across the country, was represented by Chuck Fern and Jason Barton with Cushman & Wakefield. Duke Realty was represented by Michael Kimmel, Jason Goldman, Marc Petrella and Andrew Siemsen on behalf of Cushman & Wakefield.

Duke Realty’s New Jersey portfolio totals nearly 8.2 million square feet across 21 properties and remains 100% occupied.

On a nationwide basis, Duke Realty owns, maintains an interest in or has under development approximately 159 million rentable square feet of industrial assets in 20 major U.S. logistics markets.
