ALLEN TOWNSHIP, PA — Rockefeller Group, along with joint venture partner PCCP, LLC has broken ground on the first of a two-building 1.3-million s/f distribution center in Allen Township. Construction has commenced on the 1-million s/f building at Rockefeller Group Logistics Park, with construction for a second 290,788 s/f building expected to begin later this year. It is anticipated that both buildings will be completed by summer 2019. "Rockefeller Group is excited to begin construction on Rockefeller Group Logistics Park as we expand our industrial development portfolio to Pennsylvania,” said Brandi Hanback, executive vice president and head of industrial development for Rockefeller Group. “The Lehigh Valley has emerged as a new source for companies with large space requirements that also benefit from proximity to the region’s major consumer bases.” Located in the heart of the Lehigh Valley, Rockefeller Group Logistics Park is situated two miles from Lehigh Valley International Airport, which offers both air cargo and passenger service, and is three miles from Route 22, offering toll-free access to Port Newark/Elizabeth via Interstate 78. Furthermore, the site is located within a day’s drive to one-third of all U.S. consumers and one-half of all Canadian consumers. One of the largest logistics hubs in the U.S. is adjacent to the property.
