400,000+ SF Build-to-Suit in Central PA Boosts Supply Chain Efficiencies

August 11, 2022

LEBANON, PA – Transwestern Development Company (TDC®) and its equity partner, QuadReal Property Group, announce the completion of a build-to-suit project comprising 400,000+ square feet on behalf of Walmart in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. The facility, located off Interstate 81 and Heilmandale Road, will serve as the company’s second high-tech consolidation center in the U.S., and is slightly larger than its first 340,000-square-foot high-tech consolidation center in Colton, California.

“Success in the e-commerce space hinges on maximizing supply chain efficiencies while continuing to meet consumers’ expectations, and we are proud to deliver a facility that accommodates the sophisticated technology Walmart is incorporating across its logistics operations,” said Brian Banaszynski, Northeast Regional Partner at TDC. “Walmart is well-positioned for success in a region where industrial vacancy is tightening due to increased demand, especially from big-box retailers.”

According to Transwestern research, nearly 6.3 million square feet of industrial space was absorbed in Central Pennsylvania during the first half of 2022, following more than 10 million square feet of occupancy growth within the 292-million-square-foot region last year. As a result, the vacancy rate dropped to 2.7%.

The consolidation center is intended to receive, sort and ship freight to Walmart’s regional distribution centers, reducing the number of shipments.

At present, TDC has 51 industrial projects totaling 34.14 million square feet under construction, in pre-development or recently delivered nationwide, including more than 8.98 million square feet in the Northeast.
