Workers are installing walls for the first building in a long-planned 380-acre industrial park on former Ingersoll Rand property in Warren County, New Jersey.
The site once employed more than 4,000 manufacturing workers but has sat vacant for decades.
It is now home to Bridge Point 78, an industrial park that will feature six buildings totaling 3.8 million square feet.
Bridge Point 78 is in both Phillipsburg and Lopatcong Township along the Interstate 78 corridor and Route 22, a short distance from the border with Easton, Pennsylvania.
The wall panels started going up Wednesday on a 975,761-square-foot building, the first one slated to go up in the park, said Vincent Ranalli, executive vice president of CBRE in Radnor, the real estate firm marketing the property. Construction should be complete in December for that building as well as Building 6, which is 419,459 square feet, Ranalli said. Buildings 3 and 5 will be finished in January. They will be 607,279 square feet and 175,055 square feet respectively.
