CASE STUDIES

Embracing our environment, one park at a time

Amid the COVID-19 global pandemic and an extremely tight construction schedule, Logistics Property Company, LLC (LPC) worked six days per week with Pierce County officials, Poe Construction, and numerous sub-contractors to accommodate a global home furnishings retailer (the tenant) on budget and ahead of schedule.

Opportunity:
Deliver a highly functional, aesthetically pleasing, environmentally sound, and location-appropriate 2.5 million square foot speculative business park into the Pacific Northwest on budget and on schedule during a global pandemic.

Focus:
Partner with NELSON, formerly known as Craft Architects, to create a bespoke design; Pierce County and Poe Construction to develop the property; and Neil Walter Company and Pacific Rim Real Estate Group, Inc. to lease the project.

Approach:
Open the conversation to better understand the regional design elements and demand uses to create a one-of-a-kind business park that will attract Fortune 500 users in the market.

Outcome:
Frederickson ONE, Building 1’s design evokes the feeling of a pacific northwest forest through various colors and designs on the precast panels.

The property earned all of the Washington state energy tax credits available, including efficient LED warehouse lighting and lighting controls; as well as all concrete truck courts.

Frederickson ONE provided 56-foot wide roads inside the park to enhance maneuverability for both trucks and automobiles within the park and its surroundings, as well as more than 2.5 times the required amount trailer parking stalls.

In addition, the site incorporates an extensive use of over 140 native trees.

Creating cleaner living, working and playing spaces

This site was the former location of the Pullman Couch facility but gained notoriety with the “Ice-Fire” of 2013. LPC purchased the site in late 2018 and embarked on a significant environmental clean-up effort to remediate the soils. In 2019 LPC encapsulated the site under IEPA guidance with appropriate engineered barriers and structures. Not only did LPC improve the current land use, we also dramatically improved the environmental nature of the site.

Opportunity:
Transform an environmentally challenged vacant lot in downtown Chicago into a neighborhood-centric, modern logistics facility.

Focus:
Engage the local community to ensure optimal outcomes for our people, our community, and our environment, not only because it is the right thing to do, but also because it lowers the cost of occupancy for our tenants.

Approach:
In addition to the significant benefits brought to the community via enhanced land use, environmental clean up, and community engagement, Logistics Property Company, LLC (LPC) created numerous jobs for the community. Approximately 50 new construction jobs were created during development of the property. Additionally, our tenant indicated that they would create 75 new jobs. This is a tremendous success story for a site that was environmentally challenged and sitting unused for more than five years.

Outcome:
Completed a 135,000 square foot speculative facility at 37th and Ashland in the McKinley Park neighborhood of Chicago, IL which is now the home to Technical Education Services, Inc. DBA Aviation Institute of Maintenance.
