Construction on UPS’s last-mile warehouse and distribution center at the former site of the Military Ocean Terminal in Bayonne began with a literal bang last summer, as Lincoln Equities Group imploded the last two remaining buildings at the property to make way for the anchor tenant’s 886,256-square-foot hub.

And according to the developer behind Lincoln Logistics Bayonne, that work is moving along as planned, with delivery anticipated for the fourth quarter of this year.

“It’s exciting to see our vision for Lincoln Logistics Bayonne coming to life,” said Lincoln Equities Group President Joel Bergstein in a statement. “This property represents one of the last remaining industrial redevelopment opportunities of scale in the port market, and we have designed two facilities that set the highest standard for modern portside logistics worldwide.”

The build-to-suit project for UPS took home NAIOP New Jersey’s 2021 Judges’ Transformation Award. The anchor tenant is expected to create more than 1,000 jobs at the property.

Lincoln Equities’ work at the 153-acre former Military Ocean Terminal site will also see the launch of a spec warehouse building launch next door to the UPS facility, with 330,000 square feet, according to the developer. Cushman & Wakefield is marketing that space for lease, which includes 5 acres set aside for parking.

Situated in the heart of the Port of New York/New Jersey, Lincoln Logistics Bayonne represents the largest infill industrial redevelopment in the New York Metro Area, according to LEG. Just 5 miles from Manhattan and 9 miles from Newark Liberty International Airport, the property offers unparalleled connectivity via land, air and water. LEG said that Lincoln Logistics Bayonne is the closest in-development site to the Global Container Marine Terminal, which offers direct access via a private road, just 800 feet away. With light rail access, and ferry service forthcoming, the property offers ingress and egress via the new Exit 14A interchange on the New Jersey Turnpike, Interstate 78 and Route 440.
