The transactions include two leases at the Pennbrook Business Center–a new, 128,000-square-foot industrial lease at 1180 Church Road and a 40,450-square-foot office lease renewal at 1400 Pennbrook Parkway–and the sale of the 32,500-square-foot flex building at 205 Church Road.
Newmark Managing Director Justin Bell represented the tenant, Hughes Relocation Services, Inc., in the lease at 1180 Church Road, by landlord Velocity Venture Partners; the landlord, Patriarch Management LP, in the lease to tenant, Johnson Controls, Inc., at 1400 Pennbrook Parkway; and the seller, Triumph Controls, LLC in the transaction of 205 Church Road to buyer, Alpha Strata, LLC.
According to Newmark Research, the Montgomery County submarket has been a significant beneficiary of accelerating industrial activity across Southeastern Pennsylvania. Tenant demand from a diverse group of industrial occupiers has trimmed vacancy in Montgomery County’s inventory by 60 basis points over the past year, to 6.7% in the first quarter of 2021. In turn, tightening market conditions drove rent growth of 31.0% over the same period, and new development has broken ground to meet occupier needs for space.
