Amazon Signs on for 360K SF of BTS Space in Rutherford

Amazon will occupy Lincoln Equities Group’s (LEG) future 360,000-square-foot industrial warehouse in Rutherford, NJ, Highland Cross. LEG procured $115 million in industrial build-to-suit construction financing for the facility, slated for completion in early 2022.

LEG was represented internally in leasing negotiations. Amazon was represented by KBC Advisors’ Jason Goldman.

“We’re thrilled that Amazon has selected our Rutherford facility for its latest delivery center,” said LEG President Joel Bergstein. “We have been working with Rutherford for 20 years and are excited to see this project come to fruition and create a ratable for the borough. It was this administration that supported the vision for industrial.”

LEG was appointed by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and the Borough of Rutherford as redeveloper of this 30-acre brownfield site in 1998. Working with the state Department of Environmental Protection, LEG implemented a five-year Remedial Action Work Plan and completed a wetlands mitigation program.
