The Pizzuti Companies has announced plans for a new 848,160-square-foot speculative industrial building in West Jefferson, Ohio. The warehouse is being constructed on a 55-acre site off Interstate-70 with direct access to major highways.
Located about 20 miles west of Columbus, the strength of the market has driven large build-to-suit projects in this area, including developments for notable companies such as Target, Restoration Hardware, FedEx Freight, Ace Hardware and Kellogg, as well as planned developments for Amazon and Medline. The latest development will mark the first speculative warehouse in the West Jefferson submarket.
Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2019, with delivery scheduled for the end of the year. In addition to 36-foot clear heights, 300 trailer spaces and LED lighting throughout the warehouse, the Class-A, modern building features expansion capabilities of up to 1.2 million square feet and a 15-year, 100 percent real estate tax abatement.
This speculative project marks Pizzuti’s first project in West Jefferson. Pizzuti’s master planned industrial parks are known for their high level of architectural design and construction standards.
The firm’s portfolio of industrial parks includes the 500-acre CreekSide Industrial Center in Columbus, Ohio; the 280-acre Rickenbacker West Industrial Center in Columbus, Ohio; the 350-SouthPark Business Center in Grove City, Ohio; and the 1,000-acre Pinnacle Business Center in Chicago, Illinois.
In addition to speculative developments in Columbus, Cincinnati and Chicago, Pizzuti has completed build-to-suit projects in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas for a variety of clients including Whirlpool Corporation, PetSmart, Home Depot, DHL, Walmart, Goodyear, Nationwide and Caterpillar.
