to coordinate the sale of this highly-desirable property to a leading real estate, investment and development company in Philadelphia,” said Blinebury, executive managing director. “The newly-renovated complex boasts three long-standing tenants with extended, rent- stabilized leases, and offers accessibility to a sought-after suburban location supported by a rich, diverse labor pool in one of the nation’s most populous metropolitan regions.” Recent renovations to 450 Winks Lane, which was built in 1973, include the addition of a new roof and upgrades to the building’s mezzanine and land- scaping. The single story, class B industrial facility features ceiling heights with up to 40 feet of clearance; LED and T-5 lighting; 38 dock-high loading doors; 6 drive-in doors; 13,200 amp, 3-phase electric service; and a 2.54-acre parking lot capable of accommodating 450 vehicles. The building sits on 16.2 +/- acres in four quadrants and includes an additional 2.5 acres of macadam surfaced land. The property is home to National Refrigeration, Inc., RolledMetal Products, Inc. and Brenner Aerostructures, LLC, all of which have extended their leases within the recent past.

Ideally situated in close prox- imity to the area’s extensive regional highway network, 450 Winks Lane offers excep- tional access to Rtes. 1, 73, 13 and 132 as well as I-95, which recently completed a $1.1 bil- lion infrastructure upgrade at the Neshaminy Falls toll plaza in Bensalem. Two SEPTA Regional Rail lines provide ad- ditional service to Center City Philadelphia from Bensalem Township. Southeastern Pennsylvania is experiencing a period of thriving economic growth. A recent study by the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Phila- delphia found that the region created nearly 60 percent of all new jobs and generated 39 percent of the state’s total revenues from 2013 to 2016. Cushman & Wakefield has re- cently reported vacancy rates of 4.2% in Southeastern PA and an even lower rate of 1.3% in Lower Bucks County. “Locations like 450 Winks Lane are becoming increas- ingly difficult to find in the greater Philadelphia market- place,” added Blinebury. “We worked diligently with the seller to facilitate the transac- tion and help the new owner recognize the long-term value and opportunities this asset has to offer.” 
