Pizzuti, Centerpoint Launch 848K-SF Spec Build Near Columbus

The Pizzuti Companies and Centerpoint Development plan a new 848,160-square-foot speculative industrial building in West Jefferson, OH, 20 miles west of Columbus. The warehouse is being constructed on a 55-acre site off Interstate-70, with direct access to major highways.

“As we continue to observe the growing demand in the market, we believe the time is right for speculative development in West Jefferson,” said Jim Miller, EVP of development for Pizzuti. “With over 800,000 square feet of warehouse space, expansion capabilities up to 1.2 million square feet, and located in one of the most strategic logistics regions in the country, this is an opportunity to provide a truly unique offering to this submarket.”

The market has given rise to large build-to-suit projects for tenants, including Target, FedEx and Restoration Hardware. Construction is slated to begin in spring, with completion targeted for the end of the year.
