Blue Rock Construction was proud to partner with New York City-based developer Rockefeller Group on a second project, a 345,000-square-foot speculative warehouse in Eastampton, N.J.
The project featured a 4,000-square-foot speculative office, plus new turning lanes to Route 206 to access the building. The site also includes a new wet pond, retaining wall, site fencing, and sound wall.
“The Rockefeller Group NJ/PA office and I would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to the Blue Rock organization for a job well done at our Eastampton development,” said Joshua R. Kuskin, Director, Design & Construction, NJ/PA Development. “From beginning to end, your firm performed at a high level, demonstrating your ability to overcome immense challenges with the supply chain and labor markets, all while maintaining a great degree of courtesy and professionalism.”
Originally, the warehouse had a completion date of Jan. 23, 2023, but in mid-December, Rockefeller requested that a TCO be achieved before the end of the year. Despite not getting permanent power until Dec. 19, the Blue Rock team got the TCO on Dec. 30.
“I’d like to specifically point out the efforts made in pursuit of the project’s TCO,” said Kuskin. “Tasked with a tight deadline and pushing up against the year-end Holidays, Blue Rock hit another gear and was able to persevere, allowing our tenant to occupy the building and Rockefeller to close on the development.”
Rockefeller announced two months later that it sold the 27.64-acre property to Glendale Warehouse and Distribution Corp. for $83 million. Blue Rock recently completed the fit-out project for Glendale, which is a major distributor for the spice industry and also stores and transports other food products.
The new warehouse features:
- 96 trailer spaces
- 185-foot truck court with a 60-foot apron
- 54 dock doors
- Two drive-in doors
- 36-foot clear heights
- 3,000 amps of power and LED lighting
Eastampton marked Blue Rock’s second project for Rockefeller Group. The first was a 1 million-square-foot warehouse in Allen Township, Pa., that also included a fit-out for GEODIS.
“It has been a pleasure working together and I look forward to future successes,” said Kuskin.
