Premier Store Fixtures to occupy 216,000-square-foot warehouse in Richmond-
Becknell Industrial has fully leased a speculative warehouse building currently under construction at the Airport Distribution Center on the southeast side of Richmond.
Premier Store Fixtures will be the sole occupant of Building E, a 216,000-square-foot building. Completion of the shell construction is scheduled for early October. Premier offers fixture and display services to retail stores such as design & engineering, manufacturing and support & logistics.
Joe Thomas, Premier’s chief operating officer, said the new facility will house more than 150 employees. “The addition of the facility is an integral part of our consolidation and facilities upgrade,” he said.
Clifford B. Porter of Porter Realty Co. Inc. represented both Premier and Becknell in this transaction, and is handling the marketing of the remaining sites in the park.
With Building E now leased, Becknell announced its intention to begin construction of the 153,480-square-foot Building B at the Airport Distribution Center. Construction will commence Nov. 1 with a scheduled completion in May.
