Heller Industrial Parks breaks ground on new 285,000 s/f warehouse/distribution center
SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ — Heller Industrial Parks has broken ground on a 285,000 s/f industrial warehouse / distribution center at Heller Park North in South Brunswick. The newest building in the New Jersey Turnpike Exit 8A submarket will re-affirm Heller as the leader in industrial development in central New Jersey by setting new standards for building design and land-use efficiency.
“This new building is part of Heller’s long-standing strategic plan to develop the best buildings in the best locations,” said Brian Banaszynski, president of Heller Industrial Parks. “We have been diligently monitoring the market demand for class A product, and determined it is an appropriate time to proceed with this new building on a speculative basis. Given the advantageous building design and the market conditions throughout Northern and Central New Jersey, we are confident that this new facility will be leased quickly.”
The size of the building when it was originally designed was 350,000 s/f, maximizing the building envelope with little regard to trailer and car parking. Heller’s newly approved design now offers full depth 190’ truck courts allowing ample room for trailer storage across from the docks, with other land available on-site for additional cars and/or trailers if needed. The current design allows for the building to be easily adapted for a multitude of uses, including “E-commerce” fulfillment. Topping the list of Heller’s design advantages will be the ability to store class I to class IV commodities in racks to a maximum of 40’ without the need for in-rack sprinklers. Next is the ESFR sprinkler system, designed specifically to operate without the need of a fire pump, saving the substantial and ongoing cost of frequent testing and maintenance. Third is the clever interior roof-column layout, which allows the customer to install either standard aisle or narrow aisle pallet racking, without ever having a column protrude into an aisle.
“Site work commenced this week,” according to Steve Adamowitz, executive vice president of I. Heller Construction Co., Inc. “The building should be under roof before winter sets in, and interior tenant fit-out can continue throughout the winter.”
