The CBRE team of Michael Hines, Brad Ruppel, Brian Fiu- mara and Lauren Dawicki brokered the sale on behalf of the seller and procured the buyer. The buildings were construct- ed between 1968 and 1970. They feature 24’ clear ceiling heights, ample loading capac- ity with full dock packages for the 42 dock positions. The properties are strategically located along US Routes 1 and 13 with close proximity to I-295 and I-95, the principal North/ South highways in eastern PA and NeJ.

The funding in Pennsylvania ranges from $250,000 to as much as $200 million, with firms at every stage of the life cycle growing and in need of space of all sizes. Century Therapeutics has tapped CBRE project manage- ment teammember John Rich- ards to oversee the design and construction of their new state- of-the-art office space. MAREJ Craig Dunkle, the head list- ing broker on the deal said “Being able to complete the sale of an adaptive reuse project in the City of Scranton was no easy feat, especially in today’s environment and all of the hurdles that come along with it. Given the fact there was a significant lack of travel due to the pandemic, our professional virtual tour played a huge role in our ability to market the property and attract interested investors. By working with an experienced local developer and a sophisticated out-of-market seller, we were able to work with all the stakeholders in- volved and complete a success- ful transaction.” MAREJ
