MORRISTOWN, NJ (SBN) — Dermody Properties, which develops warehouses across the country, is acquiring two parcels of land in Lumberton and Mt. Laurel, Burlington County, where it will build new distribution facilities under its LogistiCenter℠ brand. The two sites will add about 600,000 square feet of warehouse space in the county.

LogistiCenter℠ at Lumberton is a planned, 429,200-square-foot logistics facility located on 40.5 acres at 1791 Route 38. Site work is underway and the building is expected to be completed by March 2024. The LEED-certified logistics facility will include two drive-in doors, 58 dock high doors, a 36’ clear height and build-to-suit office space. The building’s 56 trailer parking stalls are also expandable to 228 total parking stalls.

LogistiCenter℠ at Mt. Laurel is a planned, 190,470-square-foot logistics facility on 31 acres at 2001 Briggs Road. Construction is set to commence in Fall 2023 and be completed by Fall 2024. The location offers convenient access to I-295 as well as the Center City District of Philadelphia, giving it a competitive advantage over other industrial facilities in the area.

“In such a challenging market, we feel very fortunate to be in a position to acquire properties such as these and expand our footprint within New Jersey,” said Rob Borny, East Region Partner at Dermody Properties. “Both projects will be state-of-the-art, Class A facilities that offer prime access to New Jersey’s strong labor pool, which is one of the most important factors for companies looking for warehouse and distribution space.”

In the past five years, Burlington County has been one of the most active submarkets in New Jersey with regard to leasing activity. This location is ideal for distribution to more than one third of the U.S. population within a one-day drive.
