Penwood-Metrix JV Lands Nearly $17M for Speculative Industrial Project in NJ

by John Jordan
The development team of Penwood Real Estate Investment Management, LLC and Metrix Real Estate Services LLC has secured $16.76 million in construction financing for its 340,000-square-foot speculative warehouse-distribution project here.

Penwood Real Estate, which is headquartered in West Hartford, CT, and Princeton, NJ-based Metrix Real Estate secured a three-year construction loan with two one-year extension options through Wells Fargo Bank for the project at 10 Princess Road. The transaction was arranged by JLL Capital Markets, which worked on behalf of the borrowers in the deal.
The Class A industrial building is under construction on a 31-acre land site at 10 Princess Road in Lawrence Township within a business park situated to the northeast of Trenton and to the southwest of Princeton.

The cross-dock industrial building will feature 40-foot clear heights, 2,000 square feet of office space, 103 dock-high loading positions, 69 trailer parking stalls and four drive-in doors. The expected completion date for the project is June 2020.

The property is immediately off the four-way interchange of I-295 and Princeton Pike and offers prominent frontage on I-295. The location is proximate to and equidistant between both the ports of New York and New Jersey and the Port of Philadelphia, each located approximately 50 miles away.

Last September, Penwood Real Estate Investment Management, LLC, through its fifth value-added investment vehicle, Penwood Select Industrial Partners V, L.P., along with its development partner Metrix Real Estate Services, LLC, acquired an approximate 20.5-acre site in Hamilton, NJ.

The partnership plans to raze the existing inline shopping center and build a 171,250-square foot warehouse/distribution building at the site.
