Developer Turnbridge Equities last week celebrated the topping out of what it called the biggest industrial development in New York City: the Bronx Logistics Center (BLC).

Work on the 1.3-million-sq-ft “last mile” logistics facility set on a 14.2-acre site is due to finish in the second quarter of next year.

Designed by Arco Design/Build Industrial, BLC will have 585,000 sq ft of warehousing space over two levels, with dedicated entrances for each floor. Outside is 730,000 sq ft of parking.

A 3MW rooftop solar array will provide electricity, and a quarter of the parking lot will have electric-vehicle charging stations.

The BLC is strategically located a five-minute drive from Manhattan’s Upper West Side and a five-minute walk to two subway stations. Its proximity to four interstate highways gives access to the wider New York region and beyond.

“As a thriving economic hotbed, the New York region is bustling with industry-leading firms and more than 20 million residents that expect a seamless, swift, and frictionless delivery process,” said Turnbridge managing principal Ryan Nelson.

JLL is acting as as leasing agent for the facility.
