INDIANAPOLIS, IN—Since entering the market in 2013, Becknell Industrial continues to expand its presence in Indianapolis. In addition to three acquisitions totaling more than 450,000 square feet, the Company has developed nearly 1.6 million square feet in just three years.
In March, Old Castle, one of the world’s leading building products and materials companies, leased the remaining 124,200 square feet available in the Company’s North by Northwest Industrial Park. The park that began as a 100 percent speculative project opened at more than 76 percent pre-leased in late 2015 and is now fully leased.
Leasing momentum also continues at its newest development, Eagle Creek Industrial Center, located on the northwest side of Indianapolis in Whitestown. The park that began as a 100 percent speculative project in late 2015 is now nearly fully occupied. Most recently, Alliance Health, a digital health and wellness company, leased the remaining 26,000 square feet of Building Two. Only the remaining 152,000 square feet of Eagle Creek Building One is currently available for lease.
Becknell continues to further its commitment and establish the Indianapolis MSA as a key investment market. The Company currently has a 357,000 square-foot speculative cross dock distribution facility under construction at Plainfield Distribution Center. This modern state-of-the-art facility features 36’ clear height, up to 84 dock doors, extensive car and trailer parking and has the potential for full security. Offering a 10-year real estate tax abatement, the facility will be completed in May 2017 and is currently available for lease.
In addition, the Company has build-to-suit opportunities in Greenfield and Greenwood. Alliance Interstate Park in Greenfield can support developments from 150,000 - 700,000 square feet and offers close proximity to I-70 and a 10-year real estate tax abatement. Southtech Business Park in Greenwood can support developments from 64,400 - 300,000 square feet and is conveniently located off of I-65 and also offers a 10-year real estate tax abatement.
“Indianapolis continues to see high demand for our mid-size industrial buildings. We are excited about the possibility of being able to serve brokers and users in the area that need a build-to-suit or space to lease,” said Pete Anderson, Executive Vice President - Investments for Becknell.
