Hillwood, Brookfield Acquire Distribution Center at 200 Birch Creek Road in Southern New Jersey

Dallas, TX – Hillwood Investment Properties, a Perot company, in a partnership with Brookfield Asset Management, has acquired a 600,000-square-foot Class A bulk distribution building located in the Southern New Jersey submarket of the Greater Philadelphia industrial market. 

“Hillwood is proud to partner with Brookfield in the acquisition of another Class A warehouse facility,” said Tom Fishman, Hillwood’s Executive Vice President of Acquisitions. “We are eager to increase our presence in the New Jersey and Pennsylvania industrial markets.

The property was developed in 1991 and provides cross-dock loading with a depth of 460’, 25’ ceiling heights, ESFR sprinkler system and 42’ x 42’ column spacing with 60’ speed bays, spacious truck courts of 122’ to 185’, 91 trailer stalls, full circulation and the potential for future rail access. With the additional land, 200 Birch Creek features an efficient and flexible warehouse design that can be expanded to accommodate users as large as 770,000 square feet or can be subdivided for a broad range of space requirements.

Located in Pureland Industrial Park, 200 Birch Creek is less than two miles from Exit 10 of I-295, Southern New Jersey’s primary north/south highway. 200 Birch Creek benefits from extraordinary access to the entire Northeast US Distribution Corridor serving New York, Northern New Jersey, Philadelphia, Delaware, Baltimore, and Washington DC metro areas. The Exit 10 location offers an extensive amenity base in the immediate vicinity of the Property including hotels, restaurants, and retail.

 “The shortage of large blocks of available space in the combined Southern New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland industrial market uniquely positions 200 Birch Creek in the region,” said Gary Frederick, Hillwood Market Officer.
