Kansas City-based developer NorthPoint Development has nearly completed a two-building industrial park, Ecorse Commons, in Romulus.
The buildings total 654,000 square feet of industrial space and NorthPoint Development officials say the development is already fully leased. NorthPoint partnered with local brokerage firm CBRE, Lauren Scarpace and Eugene Agnone III to lease the development in just 12 months. Tenants scheduled to occupy the buildings include retail logistics, warehouse distribution and supply chain solutions, according to a NorthPoint representative.
Ecorse Commons was a large-scale Brownfield vacant property previously owned by the Racer Trust portfolio, officials said. Northpoint management opted to invest in the Romulus community for the opportunity to responsibly redevelop the site to create long term sustainability for the neighborhood. The site offers convenient highway access for beneficial transportation for warehouse distribution and manufacturing. Romulus features an abundant labor force to help support ecommerce growth and the expansion of economic development for the local community, he added.
NorthPoint expanded Ecorse Road with a turning lane to provide support for operational businesses in the new development.
