The building includes 20,382 s/f of office space on 34 acres within a corporate park setting.

It also includes 150 car parking spaces and 100 trailer spaces, with room to expand the number of spaces for each. Accordia Realty and Ever- West Real Estate acquired 83 Stults Rd. and an additional 20 acres of land from Hermann’s Services in February 2017. The firms signed a sale-leaseback with the logistics/distribution company, allowing Hermann’s to continue to occupy the prop- erty for one year. JLL repre- sented Accordia Realty and EverWest Real Estate in both the initial sale and the sale- leaseback. 
