Blue Rock delivered a 705,000-square-foot distribution facility for property owner Matrix Development Group and its tenant, Jet.com, one of the fastest growing e-commerce companies in the U.S., at the Gateway Business Park in Oldmans Township, NJ.
Blue Rock began construction in September 2015 with Jet.com receiving its Temporary Certificate of Occupancy just one year later.
“The challenge really was the timeframe,” said Blue Rock Senior Project Manager Jason Quenzel. “There was a lot of coordination, and we held a lot of subcontractor meetings. We also were holding everyone involved with the project accountable. We wouldn’t let anything slip.”
The new location for Jet.com features:
- 685,000 SF warehouse space
- 10,000 SF office space
- 5,000 SF break room
- 3,000 SF new employee entrance
- 2,000 SF photography shop
Launched last summer by entrepreneur Marc Lore, Jet.com is a shopping website positioning itself for overnight deliveries to areas in the Mid-Atlantic and the northeastern United States. Jet.com has a growing customer base of urban and millennial customers with more than 400,000 new shoppers added monthly and an average of 25,000 daily processed orders.
“Thank you for your tireless efforts to complete the fit-out on an accelerated schedule. Your expertise and attention to detail are certainly reflected in the high-quality product that was produced in a short amount of time. I have enjoyed working with you on this project and look forward to the next time we can work together again.”
