BCBA AWARDS GIVEN TO SIOR NE CHAPTER MEMBERS FOR 2018
Boston’s Commercial Brokerage Association held its annual Awards night on March 22, 2019 at the Intercontinental Boston Hotel. The evening celebrates commercial real estate transactions and its individuals in the Boston commercial real estate industry. This year’s Industrial Deal of the Year was given to Greg Klemmer, SIOR and Tim Brodigan, SIOR for their lease with Quiet Logistics in Devens, MA. Quiet Logistics, a fulfillment company that ships products for several national brands was in need of space to keep up with e-commerce demand. The company decided to relocate from its 184,077 sf building at 235 Barnum Road, Devens, MA to 64 Jackson Road, Devens, MA. The company needed more warehouse in a well-located building which was very difficult to find in this high demand tenant market. 64 Jackson had 355,000 sf of warehouse/distribution space on nearby 34.89 acres. The property was purchased in March, 2018 by GFI Partners. A full building lease was eventually struck for Quiet Logistics. Built in 2000, the property was ideal for distribution with high ceilings, full AC, humidity controls, state of the art infrastructure and other amenities. The new operations at 64 Jackson are expected to boost 150 full time job opportunities, while allowing the robotic-enabled fulfillment center to meet current and future demand while vastly expanding its presence in Devens. Greg and Tim both represented Quiet Logistics. Congratulations to both Greg and Tim.
