CenterPoint Properties continues to zero in on the Northern New Jersey industrial market, this time acquiring a 49,500-square-foot cold storage facility at 200 Polar Way in Jersey City, NJ.
The building features 24-to-33-foot clear heights, an ESFR sprinkler system and 16 dock-high doors.
“This is another example of CenterPoint adding to our large infill-oriented national portfolio, targeting specific properties that we like one building at a time,” said PJ Charlton, CenterPoint’s Senior Vice President of Investments. “Polar Way is a unique, sought-after cold storage transload close to both a top port in Newark-Elizabeth and a huge population center in Manhattan and beyond,” Charlton expounded.
Industry analysts forecast online grocery shopping could make up a quarter of all grocery sales in the next five years, driving demand for cold storage facilities to new heights nationally and especially in the New Jersey/New York City market.
“We are thrilled to add this asset to our portfolio in a prime market where there is increasing demand for these types of facilities and no product available,” said Bryan Won, CenterPoint’s Investment Officer. “Polar Way is the ideal last-mile cold storage prototype and aligns perfectly with the long-term food and online grocery trends in New Jersey and New York City,” Won added.
Jason Crimmins, Alex Conte, Peter Murano and Michael Schipper of The Blau & Berg Company brokered the transaction. The property is leased long-term to a major cold storage logistics company.
