Realterm announced today it has acquired a 307,290-square-foot transload facility at 3747 Hecktown Road, Easton, Pennsylvania. The fully leased, single-tenant warehouse facility has 4,800 square feet of freezer space, racking, conveyor and pick/pack systems as well as 32 loading positions, 56 trailer stalls and three drive-in doors. It sits on a 28.47-acre site with 370 parking spaces.
“3747 Hecktown Road offered the opportunity to acquire an extremely well-located transload facility in an established and growing warehouse and distribution market,” said Ben Andreycak, Vice President, East Region Acquisitions, Realterm. “The Lehigh Valley industrial market offers the unique combination of interstate access, limited traffic congestion, and a deep and affordable labor base.”
Built in 1986 and expanded in 2017, 3747 Hecktown Road is located in a core pocket of Lehigh Valley with proximity to major parcel carrier distribution hubs, airports and existing infrastructure. The facility offers impressive connectivity to the region’s highway system given its strategic position off of Route 33 and Route 22, which provide immediate access to I-476 and I-78. The property sits at an epicenter with access to major cities including Baltimore, Washington D.C., Philadelphia and New York City within a two-hour drive, and Pittsburgh and Boston within five hours.
“Lehigh Valley has seen rent-growth out-pace most major industrial markets over the last five years, growing nearly 36 percent since the start of 2016,” said Stephen Panos, Senior Vice President, Fund Manager, Realterm. “As Lehigh Valley’s industrial market continues to see record levels of demand and e-commerce maintains rapid growth, 3747 Hecktown Road will serve as a valuable addition to Realterm’s portfolio.”
