MRP Industrial, Hillwood Tee Up Largest Spec Dist. Ctr. Building in Eastern Pennsylvania

Construction Started on First Two Bldgs. Planned in Hamburg Logistics Park on Former Perry Golf Course

A joint venture of MRP Industrial and Hillwood has begun work on two of the three distribution buildings planned in the Hamburg Logistics Park located off I-78 in Berks County, PA.

The 165-acre project on the site of the former Perry Golf Course is approved for three buildings totaling 1.9 million square feet.

The first phase of construction includes the speculative development of 101 and 201 Logistics Dr. PLans for 101 Logistics call for a 336,000-square-foot, single-loaded distribution center scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2018. The second building at 201 Logistics will be a 1,240,000-square-foot, cross dock distribution center with expected delivery by year-end 2018.

At that size, MRP/Hillside said 201 Logistics Dr. will be the largest speculative building ever developed in eastern Pennsylvania.

A second phase of construction will include the development of 301 Logistics Dr., a 324,000-square-foot facility.

"Hamburg Logistics Park’s location is another example of the continued growth of the Lehigh Valley industrial market. In addition to its proximity to a valuable labor pool, the park will provide convenient access to the region’s major third party parcel shipping hubs, responding to steady demand for both traditional distribution requirements and direct to consumer fulfillment operations."

Baltimore-based MRP Industrial, an affiliate of MRP Realty, has quickly become one of the largest industrial developers in the northeastern U.S. having built or started 27 buildings totaling over 10.3 million square feet across Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Texas-based Hillwood has been active in the I-78 market for several years.

Ware Malcomb is the project architect with The Conlan Co. serving as the general contractor. Snyder Secary & Associates, a civil engineering firm based in Harrisburg, PA, developed the master plan.
