JLL Capital Markets closed the sale of 800 Willowbrook Road to Link Logistics

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 18, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets, working on behalf of Rockefeller Group, announced today that it has closed the $91 million sale of 800 Willowbrook Road, a Class A warehouse/distribution property totaling 453,600 square feet in Northampton, Pennsylvania.

JLL represented the seller, Rockefeller Group, in the sale to Link Logistics.

“Rockefeller Group is excited to have completed the sale of the final building at Rockefeller Group Logistics Park and looks forward to developing more projects in Lehigh Valley in the future,” said Zac Csik, Vice President, Rockefeller Group NJ/PA Development. “It was a pleasure working with the teams at JLL and Link Logistics on the project as Link continues to grow its portfolio in the Northeast.”

Rockefeller Group Logistics Park includes three logistics buildings totaling 1.8 million square feet.

Completed in 2022, the cross-dock distribution facility features 36’ clear heights, four drive-in doors, 90 dock doors, 59 trailer stalls and 264 auto parking spaces.

Positioned on 36 acres in the heart of the Lehigh Valley Industrial market, 800 Willowbrook Road is located off Route 22 offering connectivity to Interstate 78 and the region’s expansive highway network. This accessibility allows tenants to reach 40% of the U.S. population within a day’s drive and 50% of all Canadian consumers. The property is adjacent to the largest FedEx Ground Hub in the United States while also providing proximity to rail services from Norfolk Southern and CSX, Port Newark Elizabeth Marine Terminal, PhilaPort, Lehigh Valley International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales Advisory team representing the seller was led by John Plower, Ryan Cottone and Zach Maguire, alongside their partners on the industrial brokerage team, led by Paul Torosian and Jeff Lockard.

“Our team is proud to have partnered with the Rockefeller Group to see this project through its life cycle, as the leasing and sale agents,” said Senior Managing Director John Plower. “The property represented a great opportunity for the buyer to add a best-in-class asset, leased long term, to their portfolio.”
