Work is nearing completion on two speculative multi-tenant industrial buildings that Meridian Design Build is building for NorthPoint Development at Ecorse Commons Industrial Park in Romolus, Michigan.
The new development is located five miles from the Detroit Metropolitan Airport near the crossroads of Interstate-94 and Insterstate-275.
The scope of the projects involved redevelopment of a 69.48-acre parcel previously home to a General Motors engine test facility. A significant amount of site work was complete to facilitate construction of the two new buildings, including demolition of existing slabs and subgrade improvements, installation of turn lanes at Ecorse Road and construction of onsite stormwater management facilities.
The 36-foot clear 409,158-square-foot Building 1 includes four drive-in doors, 213 auto parking spaces and 107 trailer parking stalls. The cross-docked multi-tenant building is designed to accommodate up to 76 loading dock positions.
The 32-foot clear 245,390-square-foot Building 2 includes 195 auto parking spaces and 68 trailer parking stalls. The building is designed to accommodate up to 58 loading docks and as many as three tenants.
CBRE’s Eugene Agnone III and Lauren Scarpace marketed the buildings for NorthPoint Development. A full 100 percent of the development was leased prior to completion.
