Kansas City-based developer NorthPoint Development is near completion on a two-building industrial park, Ecorse Commons, in Romulus, Michigan.
Totaling 654,000 square feet of class-A industrial space, NorthPoint Development partnered with local brokerage firm CBRE, Lauren Scarpace and Eugene Agnone III to fully lease the development in just 12 months. At this time, the tenants scheduled to occupy the buildings cannot be disclosed, but include retail logistics, warehouse distribution and supply chain solutions.
Ecorse Commons offers site amenities that feature proximity to Detroit Metropolitan Airport, downtown Detroit, intermodal yards and several assembly plants for major car manufacturers. Ecorse was a large-scale brownfield vacant property previously owned by the Racer Trust portfolio.
Northpoint chose to invest in the Romulus community for the opportunity to responsibly redevelop the site to create long term sustainability for the neighborhood. The site offers convenient highway access for beneficial transportation for warehouse distribution and manufacturing. The city of Romulus features an abundant labor force to help support ecommerce growth and the expansion of economic development for the local community.
NorthPoint Development partnered with Meridian Design Build and Salzeider to complete the building infrastructure and various tenant improvements for the development. In addition, NorthPoint expanded Ecorse Road with a turning lane to provide support for operational businesses. The class A industrial facilities offer custom office build out with generous tenant improvements to provide tenants with ideal function and purpose to support the growth of ecommerce.
