Cresa arranged a 599,000-square-foot warehouse lease for Brooks Running at the Rickenbacker Logistics Park in Asheville, OH

Brooks Running Revs Up Midwest Distribution with 599K-SF Warehouse Lease

In one of the largest new industrial leases signed in the Columbus market this year, Cresa’s Jim Hazard and Brad Struck, along with co-broker Michael Cantor from Allegro, represented Seattle-based Brooks Running in its 598,754-square-foot, full building lease at 10302 Transport St. in the Rickenbacker Logistics Park, located in Asheville, OH. The company will make the move in the second quarter of 2023 from a nearby distribution center facility. 

“We were honored to be part of Brooks’ first DC in the Midwest several years ago and excited to take part in the additional facility in Columbus,” said Hazard, a managing principal with Cresa’s Dallas office.  “It was key to locate a building considering all factors such as transportation, real estate cost, taxes, labor cost and labor availability, while providing a secure path for future expansions.” 

Landlord CT Investors was represented by JLL’s Dan Wendorf and Brian Marsh.
