San Francisco, CA – May 21, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — PCCP, LLC announced today it has formed a joint venture with Specht Development, Inc. to speculatively develop Interstate Crossroads Distribution Center, a Class A, 493,000-square-foot industrial building in the Airport Way submarket of Portland, OR.
Situated on 28 acres of land, the speculative crossdocked distribution facility will offer 32’ clear height and sufficient bay depths to divide the building into multiple suites if necessary. The property is within the Airport Way submarket which is located north of the city along the Columbia River. This prime industrial submarket benefits from easy access to the Port of Portland, Portland International Airport and Interstates 205 and 5.
“We see this project as a strategic investment for PCCP,” said Michael Hoyt, vice president with PCCP, LLC. “In addition to working with Specht, an experienced and proven developer and owner in the Portland area, the Airport Way submarket has a pent-up demand for large?block space that can accommodate users requiring more than 100,000 square feet. This institutional-quality project will meet a need for corporate users in a region that is growing at a rate well above the national average.”
The joint venture plans to break ground on the project in June of this year with completion anticipated for the summer of 2015.
”We are pleased to partner with PCCP, LLC on this project,” said Todd Sheaffer, president of Specht Development, Inc. “We intend to create a best-in-class facility that will provide tenants with high efficiency distribution space.”
