1 st site to be built in Philly's Port Richmond neighborhood BG Capital plans to develop +$3B in cold storage facilities

P HILADELPHIA, PA — BG Capital an- nounced a new stra- tegic real estate partnership with New Jersey based cold storage operator FreezPak Logistics to build and own over 200 million cubic feet of customized cold-storage in- dustrial distribution facilities in port centric markets across the United States at over $3 billion in total asset value. The first project BG Capi- tal plans to build will be in Philadelphia's Port Rich- mond neighborhood (2201 East Allegheny Ave.) and is slated to break ground Q3 of 2022, at a total project cost of $85 million. FreezPak is taking a long- term triple-net lease for this building and the rest of the future builds moving for- ward. While BG Capital's team is sourcing the financing for all the projects, FreezPak will put up their proportion- ate share of equity for each project. “BG Capital is extremely pleased to be the developer partner for the FreezPak national expansion program," said BG Capital's president

Joe Byrne . "Both compa- nies were founded upon a blue-collar work ethic and a relentless hunger for growth. The synergy between our two groups is exactly what is required to ensure an en- deavor of this magnitude is successful.” The Philly Port Rich- mond project will consist of a ground up new construc- tion of 170,117 s/f building with a building height of 75 ft. on a seven-acre parcel, containing 20 loading docks, 30 trailer parking stalls, and 60 additional car parking. The building is designed to install a fully automated ASRS Automated Storage and Retrieval System in a

portion of the building. The building will be leased solely by FreezPak Logistics on a long-term lease which anticipates bringing 60 new permanent jobs to the neigh- borhood of Port Richmond with countless additional jobs provided throughout the construction timeline of the project. “FreezPak is thrilled to find a partner like BG Capital that understands our goal of being a fully integrated company," said FreezPak's co-founder/CEO Dave Saoud. "This partnership enhances our one stop shop model by becoming the developer, op- erator, integrator and logis- tics provider.” MAREJ
