Mericle is constructing record-breaking industrial spec building
JENKINS TOWNSHIP, PA — Mericle Commercial Real Estate Services is constructing a 1,023,000 s/f speculative industrial building at 200 Technology Drive in CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park East, Jenkins Township, Pennsylvania. The project was announced by Mericle president Robert K. Mericle. The building is scheduled to be completed before the end of the year and will be the largest industrial facility ever constructed on speculation in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Robert Mericle said he decided to construct the building because of how popular CenterPoint and Northeastern Pennsylvania have become with companies seeking a strategic location for a new distribution center. Mericle listed Amazon.com, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Neiman Marcus, Corning, Kimberly Clark, Isuzu, Tailored Brands, Benco Dental, Jerry’s Sports Center, and FedEx SmartPost as among the firms that have opened large distribution centers in the park. Altogether, there are 51 tenants and 6,000 employees in nine million square feet in CenterPoint.
