Cushman & Wakefield served as the exclusive advisor to Advance Realty Investors and Greek Development in arranging $235,000,000 of permanent financing for Buildings E and G at Linden Logistics Center located at 600 Linden Logistics Way in Linden, New Jersey.
The 10-year, fixed-rate loan was provided by Northwestern Mutual.
“We’re incredibly proud of our project team and the quality of product we’ve been able to complete at Linden Logistics Center,” said Advance Realty Investors CEO Peter Cocoziello. “This is the culmination of the first of several phases in our development program and we are so pleased to expand our great relationship with a best-in-class lender in Northwestern Mutual. Currently we’re under construction with the second phase encompassing another 1.6 million square feet in 3 separate buildings and look forward to delivering this phase in the Third Quarter of 2022.”
Measuring 480,844 and 840,203 square feet, respectively, Buildings E and G are 100% leased to World Distribution Services and Peloton Interactive, Inc. The two Class A facilities total over 1.32 million square feet and feature 40’ clear heights, multiple cross-docked loading positions, drive-in doors and ample trailer and car parking.
“Today’s announcement serves as a testament to both the strength of the project and the combined hard work of everyone involved,” said Frank Greek, CEO at Greek Development. “Alongside our key project partners, we’ve successfully provided an unrivaled, state-of-the-art, Class-A logistics space in the Port of NY/NJ region and look forward to Linden’s continued momentum and success.”
Located in New Jersey’s Port Industrial Market, one of the most vibrant industrial hubs in the United States, Linden Logistics Center offers unrivaled connectivity and access to over 100 million consumers in a day’s drive. The buildings are surrounded by a massive infrastructure system that includes Newark International Airport within a 15-minute drive, multiple deep-water cargo ports within a 30-minute drive, interstate highways and commercial rail lines. Buildings E and G represent the first phase of Linden Logistics Center, which will span eight buildings and over four million square feet once fully completed.
“Linden Logistics Center is one of the most impressive industrial developments to be undertaken in New Jersey in recent history. The team of Advance Realty Investors and Greek Development have done an incredible job with this site and Cushman & Wakefield is proud to be involved with its first phase,” said Alascio. “The quality of sponsorship and tenancy led to an extremely competitive financing process and we are thrilled with the outcome for this dynamic partnership.”
