Prologis Distribution Center - Carlisle
Situated on 105.1 acres of land off Allen Road at Exit 44 on I-81 and in a core market location, the asset encompasses 1,029,000 square feet of Class A speculative space, along with an additional build-to-suit site fully approved for 398,840 square feet. According to an official statement announcing the start of construction, Prologis has retained Cushman & Wakefield’s Conshohocken office as exclusive leasing agent for the space. The distribution warehouse, which is slated for occupancy in August 2015, is the first large industrial construction project in the Central Pennsylvania area since the economic downturn and Prologis’ first speculative development since 2007. Designed by Ware Malcomb—an Irvine, CA-based architecture firm specialized in the design of office, industrial, distribution, healthcare, science & technology and retail developments—the warehouse will be used as bulk distribution and e-commerce fulfillment space. The main facility features 36-foot ceilings and 7-inch concrete floors, 205 dock doors, 309 trailer drops, 190-foot truck courts, as well as 282 parking spaces. The second building offers 108 trailer drops, 190-foot truck courts, and 131 parking spaces.   Rendering via Cushman & Wakefield
