NorthPoint Development, a commercial real estate developer specializing in industrial development, joined political and business leaders, the design and construction team, and the local community on July 28 to break ground for a new 432,640-square-foot warehouse. The $19.5 million, single-load industrial building, located in Forks Township, Pennsylvania, will promote and encourage development opportunities within the township for office, service, and manufacturing uses. This area will support residential growth in the community according to the zoning code and create 430 direct and indirect jobs and tax revenue to the township.
Eric Watts, Director of Development for NorthPoint Development opened the groundbreaking ceremony stating, “This development will provide a lasting value for the community through job creation, tax revenue, and a capital investment of $38.6 million dollars. We are at the starting line of construction with anticipated excitement to announce we pre-leased the project to a confidential Fortune 50 company. Forks Township provides a competitive landscape with a strong supporting labor force, energetic community members, and the ambition to collaborate with private entities like NorthPoint.”
Projects like Commerce 33 require execution and hard work from many partners who attended the groundbreaking; Forks Township, Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation, Quandel Construction, and Schlouch Incorporated.
