The Opus Group (Opus) announced today that the recently built space at Port Union Commerce Park is now 100 percent leased. O’Gara-Hess & Eisenhardt Armoring Company LLC and ProFill Fulfillment leased the final two spaces at the industrial development representing approximately 235,000 square feet. Founders Properties, L.L.C. owns the full industrial park, which spans the cities of Fairfield and West Chester.
“We are delighted to have fully leased the two most recently completed buildings at the Port Union Commerce Park,” said Kevan O’Connor, senior manager, real estate development, Opus Development Company, L.L.C. “The industrial market in the area is thriving and we are pleased that the space allows tenants to pursue growth opportunities, while bringing jobs and investment to the community.”
Located near the intersection of State Route 747 and Port Union Road, the two additional buildings at the commerce park total 807,000 square feet and join two previously constructed buildings. The location offers an established market with abundant nearby retail opportunities for tenant employees, and provide tenants with a premier location for local, regional and national distribution.
In addition to the convenient location, the modern buildings appealed to tenants with views of the local landscape, a unique feature for industrial spaces, as well as 28- and 32-foot clear heights. Both buildings feature 60-foot deep trailer storage in the truck courts, abundant car and trailer parking, as well as ESFR sprinklers and T-5 fluorescent lighting.
“The now fully leased Port Union Commerce Park continues to demonstrate the demand for industrial warehouse space in this market,” said Andy Finn, vice president, acquisitions and investments, Founders Properties, L.L.C. “We are happy with how the development project turned out.”
The new buildings were fully leased to six tenants, including O’Gara-Hess & Eisenhardt Armoring Company LLC and ProFill Fulfillment, as well as four additional companies whose services range from e-commerce to supply chain management.
Opus’ recent portfolio of work includes more than 8.2 million square feet of industrial developments currently under construction or completed in the past 24 months across the United States.
Opus Development Company, L.L.C. was the developer, Opus Design Build, L.L.C. was the design-builder and Opus AE Group, L.L.C. was the architect and structural engineer of record. Mike Lowe and Doug Whitten of CBRE managed the listing in the leasing of the space.
