OUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ — There’s more to celebrate this year than just the holidays at Edison, NJ based Heller Industrial Parks . One of the largest dis- tribution center developers in the country, Heller announced that it is has signed a long- term lease with All-Ways for this latest best-in-class build- ing at Heller Park North in South Brunswick.

Route 17 South. The fourth property, lo- cated at 60 Route 17 North, is a 74,900 s/f power center featuring credit tenants in- cluding DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse, PetSmart and a 25,000-s/f Staples store that will be re-tenanted. “This strategic acquisition offered our partnership an opportunity to purchase ir- replaceable real estate on an established trade corridor,” said Lesley Lisser , director, asset management, Invesco Real Estate. “The properties’ prime location in the heart of Bergen County offers tenants excellent visibility along an always-busy traffic artery, as well as access to the area’s dense, high-income popula- tion.” ChuckLanyard , president of The Goldstein Group , will serve as the leasing agent for the northbound asset. n Heller’s in-house engineer- ing, construction and leasing departments are now proceed- ing with updating the designs for the balance of the 2.6 million s/f Heller Park North. “These new buildings will be a significant addition to the next generation of distribu- tion centers built to satisfy the most stringent demands of today’s sophisticated storage, distribution and transporta- tion logistics firms.

was the right size building to start on a speculative basis,” said Brian Banaszynski , president of Heller Industrial Parks. “The building design, with 40’ top-of-product storage heights combined with park- ing for 85 trailers, was the key to attracting several prospec- tive tenants for the project. Our sales and construction teams were highly coordinated and key to responding to the tenant’s needs, which made the leasing of this facility go smoothly.” The driver behind the rapid pace of construction of the

Richard & Son. The third building is an older 72,184 s/f office building that the part- nership plans to redevelop. "Paramus is among the most desirable retail cor- ridors in the United States, All-Ways is a new tenant to Heller’s portfolio as well as this submarket. However, they are not a new company by any means.

It is one of the fastest growing 3PLs with over 1 million s/f of existing operations in the Los house to be leased in the 8A submarket. The construction just recently commenced in September 2015, so the build- ing has a new tenant months before completion.
