ASHLAND — Newmark Knight Frank (“Newmark”) has announced the 602,378-square-foot, full-building lease of a distribution center located at 1250 George Road in the heart of Ashland.
Newmark Vice Chairman Terry Coyne represented the property’s owner, the Mid-America Management Corporation, in the long-term lease transaction to a confidential tenant.
“The property’s central location puts it at a great advantage in terms of distribution in the Midwest region,” Terry said. “Less than two miles from I-71 and accessible to many major Midwest cities, the facility is four hours from Buffalo and Indianapolis; three hours from Cincinnati, Detroit and Pittsburgh; and two hours from Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo and Akron/Canton.”
Coyne added that the building itself, which was built in 2001, has many characteristics that companies desire in a distribution center, including 36-foot clear height ceilings, an ESFR fire protection system, ample parking for cars and trucks and multiple docks and drive-in doors.
"The City of Ashland is excited to welcome a new business partner to one of our area’s largest industrial distribution facilities and we especially want to thank Terry Coyne and his Newmark team for the work they did in making this partnership happen,” Mayor Matt Miller said. “We look forward to the job growth and economic activity that will take place in this facility once it is fully-operational."
