Blue Rock delivered a 483,990-square-foot distribution center for Stitch Fix, an upstart e-commerce retailer that serves as an online personal shopping service for women.
The tenant fit-out project marks Stitch Fix’s first distribution center in the Northeast, as the San Francisco-based company looks to expand its user base along the East Coast.
The facility, which is owned by real estate developer Prologis, covers 32.5 acres and includes:
- LEED Gold certification
- 457,500 SF warehouse/distribution space
- New warehouse lighting
- 26,490 SF office space
- 75 dock positions; 2 drive-in doors
- 53′ x 56′ column spacing; 60′ at speed bay
- 223 car parking; 127 trailer parking
- HVAC modifications
Construction of the office areas started Feb. 3, 2016, and final inspections were performed and approved by the township by April 1. Break rooms in the three office areas are sizeable and designed for a maximum occupancy of 992 people.
Blue Rock worked closely with Stitch Fix, Prologis, KSS Architects and Project Manager JLL throughout the process.
“Given very tough deadlines from the onset, Blue Rock and its subcontractors worked overtime and weekends where necessary to ensure timely delivery of the project based on the initial completion schedule. This allowed Prologis to meet our obligations to the tenant. Although it was not easy, Blue Rock did not object and only kept the end goal in mind.” READ MORE
