TJ Maxx Parent Company Inks Lease for Build-to-Suit Distribution Facility in Northeast Philadelphia

 TJX, the parent company of retailers T.J. Maxx, Marshalls and Home Goods, has signed a lease for a build-to-suit distribution facility in northeast Philadelphia.

TJX is set to occupy an entire 282,800-square-foot facility that will be located on 21 acres at 9801 Blue Grass Road. The Blue Grass property is owned by DH Property Holdings and Bridge Development is serving as the developer for the project.

The existing building at 9801 Blue Grass Road was originally constructed in the 1950s and owned by Horn & Hardarts. At the time, it was the largest commercial bakery in the United States and was built to produce the company's own line of baked goods for sale in its chain of so-called automat stores in New York and Philadelphia.

The building was later used by Hostess Bakery to produce Twinkies until 2012. Since then, it has been leased to a variety of local warehousing and distribution companies.
