Licht and Lashner now seek to lease out the remain- der 45,000 s/f. Licht was the point man for this project and worked together with seller, L & L Properties , and JG Petrucci to realize this second transac- tion between same parties as last year Licht sold 375 Jack- sonville, a 67,000 s/f first class warehouse distribution center

Station at Bucks County rep- resents the redevelopment of the former Drager Medical property into a luxury unit residential transit community. The recent property purchases are located directly across the street and contiguous to each other to ensure Bucks Sta- tion Phase 2 and maybe even Phase 3, if deemed appropriate at some point in the future.
