Kansas City’s NorthPoint Development is planning a 96-acre logistics center with up to 900,000 sq. ft. of warehouse and office space at 1701 E. Patapsco St. in Curtis Bay. NorthPoint acquired an assemblage of former industrial properties that are on the Patapsco River and Stonehouse Cove adjacent to CSX train tracks. The development, called Harbor Logistics Center, will eventually have up to four buildings and large parking lots.
NorthPoint told Baltimore Business Journal:
“We have been in this business for nearly a decade and know that there has been a lack of development opportunities south of the tunnel,” said Brent Miles, a spokesman for NorthPoint, in a statement. “We immediately saw the scale and opportunity here – with access to the 4th largest [metropolitan statistical area] in the country, proximity and access to CSX rail and the Port of Baltimore. Harbor Logistics Center is going to be the distribution hub here in Baltimore.”
NorthPoint, along with its leasing team at Colliers International and JLL, is currently marketing Building 1 which will be approximately 263,580 sq. ft.
Building 1 will be 36 ft. tall and have up to four drive-in doors, 24 to 51 loading dock doors, 250 car parking spaces, 39 trailer parking spaces, and a 60 ft. truck court. It has a delivery date of November 2021.
The brochure also shows Building 2 and Building 3 which would add an approximately additional 441,600 sq. ft. of warehouse and office space to the project.
NorthPoint was founded in 2012 and has developed 84.5 million sq. ft. for tenants such as Chewy.com, Amazon, Home Depot, Walmart, General Motors Inc., and GE.
Harbor Logistics Center is located across Stonehouse Cove and around the corner from a development by Scannell Properties. The development will build 522,675 sq. ft. of warehouse space and 58,075 sq. ft. of office space at 4501 Curtis Ave. and 1701 Benhill Ave. This development, which is designed for distribution uses, will have three buildings built in phases. Demolition is currently underway and construction will soon start on the first building.
NorthPoint is also developing a 950-unit Beyond Self Storage facility in Carroll-Camden.
