NorthPoint Development is breaking ground on its new EaglePoint Logistics Center in South Annville Township.
The company announced the official start of the $103 million development project in a press release earlier this month.
The EaglePoint Logistics Center will be located along Route 422 and Killinger Road, with entrances off Killinger. The EaglePoint facility will be located across the street from the planned 2.8 million-square-foot Clear Springs Logistics Park currently in the works by DHL.
The EaglePoint facility will consist of a single 1.1 million-square-foot warehouse that can later be expand to 1.3 million square feet. The company said that the building will feature 40-foot clear ceiling heights, up to 204 loading doors, 655 car parking spaces, and 308 dedicated trailer storage spaces.
Additionally, the company said that the project will include cross-docked configurations (allowing items to be packed from a source without an intermediary storage step) and 185-foot-deep truck courts (providing easier maneuverability for users).
EaglePoint said that the warehouse is expected to be complete by spring 2023.
Last October, NorthPoint obtained a tax abatement for the site from South Annville Township under the Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance (LERTA) Act.
The company said that it will partner with JLL for leasing of the facility.
NorthPoint said that it expects the facility to create 292 construction jobs over the next year, and 454 permanent jobs once the project is complete.
NorthPoint did not respond to requests for comment about whether there was a specific planned use or tenant for the building at this time.
