Lansdale, PA — The joint venture between Advance Realty (Advance) and The Davis Companies (TDC) announced that Great Atlantic Graphics will relocate to 2750 Morris Rd. — a 650,000 s/f, reinvented industrial facility in Lansdale. Located nine miles from Philadelphia, 2750 Morris Rd. sits on 84 beautifully landscaped acres and offers prime access and signage opportunities off the Northeast Extension of The Pennsylvania Turnpike at Exit 31, as well as routes 202, 309 and 63.
Great Atlantic Graphics’ new 68,000 s/f lease follows a series of infrastructure upgrades at the property that include the addition of new building systems, a new roof and exterior wayfinding signage, as well as improvements to common areas, landscaping, and parking.
Relocating to the Lansdale facility from Malvern, PA, Great Atlantic Graphics will house both its manufacturing and office operations at 2750 Morris Rd., which features robust in-place infrastructure that satisfies the critical components of the company’s facilities requirements.
“Great Atlantic Graphics’ space needs fit perfectly with our vision for 2750 Morris,” said Barry Quiner, Advance Realty’s director of asset management. “Since acquiring the property in 2014, our partnership has been focused on doing everything necessary to attract tenants like Great Atlantic. Specifically, our goal has been to build on the infrastructure that already existed at the site, ultimately elevating it to its current status as a premier facility for climate-controlled production and manufacturing.”
Originally an electronics plant for Ford Motor Company, 2750 Morris Rd. features heavy power generation; state-of-the-art HVAC and humidity control systems; dual substation power feeds; chilled-water and compressed-air delivery systems; and five diesel generators. The building’s temperature- and humidity-controlled environment makes it particularly well suited for companies seeking versatile, high-quality warehouse, manufacturing or assembly space.
“Just weeks after announcing the completion of our property upgrades at 2750 Morris, it’s exciting to welcome Great Atlantic Graphics at an ideal time when they can take full advantage of the significant renovations we’ve made in partnership with Advance. We’ve applied our repositioning expertise to transform this former electronics plant into a dynamic office and warehouse,” added Mark Bush, a senior vice president of asset management at The Davis Companies.
In addition to Great Atlantic Graphics, 2750 Morris is currently home to a roster of tenants that includes Valmet, Vygon USA, and Fox Bindery. Neighbors include Almac, Merck, Johnson & Johnson and Teva Pharmaceuticals.
