Transwestern Development Co. said April 29 that General Plumbing Supply Inc. (GPS) signed a long-term lease for 300,000 square feet at Piscataway Logistics Center–a new, two-building industrial project at 330 S. Randolphville Road.
The lease commitment with the 100-year-old company – one of the largest distributors of plumbing, heating, HVAC and industrial supplies on the East Coast – was secured approximately five months prior to construction completion in fall 2021.
“We are very proud that GPS has chosen Piscataway Logistics Center for its new headquarters, showroom and distribution center,” said Brian Banaszynski, regional partner with TDC’s Logistics Group. “Broad interest in this project underscores the strength and significance of New Jersey’s industrial real estate market, and we are confident that this state-of-the-art facility will provide the efficiencies and flexibility GPS was searching for in well-located, modern distribution space.”
A development of TDC and its partner QuadReal Property Group, Piscataway Logistics Center is situated on a 16-acre site just 40 miles from New York City. The asset comprises a ground-up, 151,748-square-foot, Class A warehouse and a fully renovated, 146,000-square-foot warehouse. Both rear-load buildings feature 36-foot clear heights, a combined 39 dock doors, ample car and trailer parking, and a shared truck court depth of 185 feet.
