Edge, brokered the sale of 90 Discovery Drive, a single-story, 81,000 square foot warehouse building in Olyphant, Pennsylvania for approximately $4.8 million. Cory Hoffman, Partner, Advisory Services represented the seller, Starline Properties. The buyer, which completed a 1031 tax exchange, was an investment group consisting of two private individuals.
Constructed in 2000 and situated on an approximate 15-acre site, 90 Discovery Drive is located within Scott Tech Park and is approximately 12 miles north of Scranton. Interstate 81 is five miles from the site, Wilkes-Barre Scranton International Airport is approximately 25 miles away and Philadelphia can be reached in just over two hours. The building is 100% leased to a single tenant, Meyer Distributing, a company engaged in automotive specialty products marketing and distribution.
“This transaction consisted of a short-term sale-leaseback to the most recent ownership group,” explained Cory Hoffman of Edge. “The buyer acquired an asset in excellent condition and, with a scarcity of small, single-tenant warehouse buildings available for lease in central Pennsylvania, they are extremely optimistic about securing a long-term lease in the near future.”
