Size: 95,000 SF Several 2019 grand openings and new leases punctuated the transformation of Twin City Shopping Center. As exclusive managing and leasing agent, Levin Management Corpora- tion (LMC) orchestrated a series of renovations – includ- ing a new façade, pylon signage, stonework and sidewalk refurbishments – that significantly enhanced the property’s curb appeal. This work was instrumental in securing a wave of new leases at the center, including Taco Bell (prompting a ground-up expansion at the property), Kidz Village, Pop- eye’s Louisiana Kitchen, T-Mobile and 1HOURREPAIR. com – all of which opened in 2019 – and soon-to-open Hook & Reel Cajun Seafood and Bar, andApple Nail Salon.

Audubon Village Shopping Center is an older shopping center, comprised of multiple additions from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1990s to create one strip center and had a va- cant, anchor building from 1991 on the same site. The key to revitalizing this center and enticing an anchor tenant lay in creating a cohesive design that spanned the two build- ings. The client opted for a traditional look that matched the neighboring area, so the design includes new gables, subtle arches, stone pillars, and vertical siding. They used the same materials on the separate gabled building, which was filled by Redner’s Market.

Seagis Property Group was represented by Jordan Metz, senior vice president of BRC. “E-commerce and the “Amazon- effect” have shifted consumer behavior, creating a major paradigm-shift in the retail (now e-tail) landscape. Simply put: we buy more and more online and that’s not slowing down. The subsequent demand for last mile warehouse space for swift delivery of these online purchases has continued to soar, outpacing any conceivable levels of current supply. With units ranging from 5,000 to 25,000 SF and up, vacancy rates in the market hovering at 1.5 percent, and easy ac- cess to one of the nation’s most heavily trafficked highway networks, Seagis is well-positioned to capture a myriad of tenants seeking functional space in a prime last-mile location at 1001 Roosevelt Avenue.

Everest Reinsurance’s 315,086 SF, 16-year lease to relocate its corporate headquarters to Warren Corporate Center in Warren, N.J., signals a new model for success in today’s evolving office landscape. The deal didn’t merely set a new record in 2019 it was among the top ten largest office leases in the Northern New Jersey market over the past decade. But with the rise of telecommuting and following nearly stagnant office leasing during the first half of 2019, it also shows the significance of providing a unique experience at office.

Colliers International 1386 Schoolhouse Drive New Castle, DE

Size: 190 Acres Brokers: Mark Chubb, Michael Zerbe, Summer Coulter In 2019 Colliers’ logistics team of Mark Chubb, Michael Zerbe and Summer Coulter successfully sold one of the last remaining large pieces of land in Delaware’s New Castle County. A strategic east coast land site, the 190 acre par- cel of industrially zoned land was transferred on behalf of Akzo Nobel to Kansas City-based developer, Northpoint Development. Located at 1386 Schoolhouse Road in New Castle, DE the site is predominantly farmland with a small previously de- veloped portion historically operated on by Stauffer Chem- ical. It will soon be redeveloped by Northpoint as “Dela- ware City Logistics Park” - the premier industrial logistics park within the State of Delaware. The park will feature four industrial buildings totaling over 2 million SF of mod- ern distribution and fulfillment space. The move represents Northpoint’s first investment in Delaware. This sale is now being considered a local model for brown- field redevelopment. The sale also represents a new spark of industrial development for the area, which has so far missed out on the speculative development of large dis- tribution and fulfillment that’s cropped up in nearby Cecil County, Md. and South Jersey.

Size: 37,630+/- SF Brokers: Ken Wellar, Corey Lonberger, Mark Duszak This sale marked the highest price per square foot for a development site at the time in the rapidly growing University City District. Purchased by a partnership between Carlyle/Alterra Property Group, this deal ini- tiated the development of over 300 residential units conveniently located near some of the best educational and medical facilities in the world such as University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, Children’s Hos- pital of Philadelphia and the Hospital of University of Pennsylvania.

Location: Wilmington, DE Type of project: Renovation Size: 350,000 SF

320 Paterson Plank Road is one of our recently completed, industrial facilities that is located in Carlstadt, New Jersey. This warehouse has a 40,000 SF footprint and a height of 48 feet. Additionally, the facility was originally designed with a 13,000 SF mezzanine for indoor storage. REDCOM initially entered this project as the general contractor. Due to the township’s regulations that forbid outside storage, the owner was faced with a storage issue. REDCOM’s in- house experts re-engineered the existing facility to include a 40,000 SF second floor during the construction process. This solution brings the two-story warehouse to a total of 80,000 SF. REDCOM was able to solve the owner’s storage problem while keeping within the township’s regulations.

The project included complete renovations to 12 floors of office spaces across two-adjacent high-rise buildings in downtown Wilmington, Delaware totaling 350,000 SF. Many areas were enhanced by the renovation including: multimedia conference rooms, executive offices, HUB, game rooms, lobby and reception areas. MEP infrastructure upgrades, open ceilings, and polished concrete floors are a few of the special interior features incorporated in the ren- ovation. The modern spaces are planned to create collab- orative workspaces and help Capital One attract creative, young professionals. The building remained operational throughout construction and required a phased approach to complete work in the safest manner possible.

RGS Associates VERDE Apartments Hummelstown, PA Type of project: Multifamily Residential Housing Redevelop- ment Size: 6 acres, +/- A blighted processing facility needing to be returned to a produc- tive, taxable land use, was redeveloped to include six apartment buildings (134 apartments), parking, fitness, maintenance, four multi-car garages, open space improvements, and related infra- structure. The plan fit the context of the neighborhood, met local ordinance and stormwater regulations, as well as complied with all applicable environmental requirements. The project redevelops the last remaining undeveloped property in the northeast portion of the Borough and creates a unified/attractive streetscape. It’s a stellar example of how a well-designed community infill and redevelop- ment project can integrate challenging infrastructure solutions into an overall project. Why was this particular job your favorite/most unusual? The Verde Apartments project is an important and replicable ex- ample of urban redevelopment that implements a number of cost effective solutions for developers and communities to consider. The Verde Apartments project, developed at 26.5 units/acre, dem- onstrates that higher densities can be achieved in existing neigh- borhoods without compromising quality design. It also proves that stormwater management requirements can be met while consider- ing cost and project financing. Specialized hydrologic modeling was needed to accurately repre- sent the runoff associated within the site. Improvements to down- gradient storm conveyance infrastructure was coordinated with lo- cal municipal officials. Multiple water quality BMPs were utilized to meet rigorous nutrient removal efficiencies dictated by NPDES guidelines. A combination of pre-treatment structures, water-tight underground storage facilities, and a street sweeping maintenance program were incorporated to fully meet these objectives. Verde Apartments serve as an excellent example of how a private development can successfully revitalize a portion of an existing borough which was otherwise deteriorating and vacant. The team created a redevelopment plan that fit into the existing fabric of the Borough. The outcome created a win-win for 2nd Street Realty and

This $119 million adaptive re-use project was completed while the building remained fully operational. In addition to an upgrade of all ductwork and piping, one of the most logistically chal- lenging activities was installing new rooftop equipment on a landlocked building. Because of narrow surrounding streets and the project team’s access to only one loading dock, four 550-ton crane mobilizations were required to install the mechanical equipment. Developing the critical path required coordination with more than a dozen public and private entities.
