101 Commerce Drive 100% Leased

September 14, 2023

PHILADELPHIA – Transwestern Investment Group (TIG®), on behalf of Transwestern Strategic Partners Fund III (“TSP Fund III”), announces it has acquired 101 Commerce Drive in Hazelton, Pennsylvania. The 470,000-square-foot industrial distribution facility is fully leased to an undisclosed tenant.

“The acquisition complements our strategy to acquire highly functional assets below replacement cost in core major logistics markets across the country,” said Chris Sterling, Director of Acquisitions at TIG. “101 Commerce Drive’s location, which offers outstanding Interstate and port access, coupled with the building being fully leased, made this a very appealing opportunity.”  

Situated in Northeast Pennsylvania’s Interstate 81 Industrial Corridor, the Class A asset is in proximity to various thoroughfares and major ports, including the Ports of New York and New Jersey, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. It offers access to Interstate 80 and Routes 924 and 309, allowing for distribution to 48% of the United States population and 60% of the Canadian population within a one-day drive.  

Due to its prime location, Hazleton continues to experience significant demand for industrial space, which has led to strong net absorption and low vacancy rates. According to Transwestern research, the submarket ended the second quarter of 2023 with 1.8% vacancy and posted annual rent growth of 9.4%.

CBRE’s Northeast team brokered the deal.

The fund closed with $325 million of commitments, the company’s largest fundraise to date, and focuses on diversified value-add investment and development opportunities in markets across the U.S. that are driven by strong job growth and global supply chains.
