Dermody Properties buys former Mountain Creek Distribution Center
Nevada-based Dermody Properties has acquired the former Mountain Creek Distribution Center in Cumberland County from Texas-based builder Trammell Crow Co.
The center, now known as LogistiCenter Carlisle, already has one warehouse with 700,000 square feet of space available for leasing at 2 Ames Drive in Dickinson and South Middleton townships. Dermody plans to build the second 602,250-square-foot warehouse in the near future, the company said today.
“The existing building at LogistiCenter Carlisle is an excellent facility for distribution operations,” Eugene Preston, a partner with Dermody’s east region office, said in a statement. “We look forward to quickly developing another state-of-the-art facility to complement 2 Ames Drive.”
The construction schedule of the new warehouse will depend on leasing of the existing one, according to the company. However, if it receives a build-to-suit proposal from a tenant for the new warehouse, that would advance the construction cycle.
Trammell Crow finished the first warehouse at the property in 2012, after nearly five years of pause on the project due to the recession and opposition from citizens groups in the early approval phases.
The site is near Allen and Walnut Bottom roads, a key distribution hub in Cumberland County that’s home to warehousing of multiple companies, including Seattle-based Internet retailer Amazon.com’s fulfillment center.
