OR: EYELEVEL to Move Distribution Center to PDX Logistics Center Phase III
7 Feb, 2018
Capstone Partners LLC and its joint venture partner PCCP, LLC announced it has signed a 122,749-square-foot lease with EYELEVEL, for its PDX Logistics Center
Phase III Building 5 scheduled to be completed in February 2018. EYELEVEL, a Portland resident since 2007, will be relocating its distribution center (currently located in three buildings on Swan Island) to PDX Logistics Center by April 1, 2018.
PDX Logistics Center Phase III is a two building development in the final phase of Capstone’s
1,103,547-square-foot state-of-the art logistics park located in Portland International Center and ground leased from the Port of Portland.
Building 4 is a 134,398-square-foot, 26’ clear height facility and Building 5 is a 122,749-square-foot, 32’ clear height facility. Both buildings incorporate state-of-the-art features including super flat floors, early suppression fast response sprinklers (ESFR), deep truck courts and energy-efficient features including T-5 lighting, insulated exterior walls and TPO roof system. EYELEVEL will join Anixter which has leased 35,632 square feet in Building 4. The two leases bring the project to 62 percent pre-leased.
“We are excited to welcome EYELEVEL in their relocation to PDX Logistics Center Phase III.
EYELEVEL is an international company that designs and manufactures retail experiences for global brands. This facility will be home to their DC and logistics teams. We are pleased they have selected our development for this important expansion of their Portland footprint,” said Chris Nelson, principal of Capstone Partners LLC.
“Our Swan Island facilities have served us well over the last 10 years, but we’ve worked hard to outgrow those; we’re thrilled and ready for what’s next at our new location,” said Michael Bradley, managing director of EYELEVEL.
“As we continue to produce, assemble, inventory and distribute worldwide from Portland, it’s important that we have the infrastructure to support our clients’ needs, and above all, provide well-designed and thoughtful workplaces for our employees,” said Operations Director, Joseph Wenz.
The project was designed by Mackenzie and constructed by PERLO Construction both of
Portland. Paul Breuer, Jerry Matson and Brian Yoakum of Colliers International are the PDX
Logistics Center Phase II leasing agents and Peter Stalick of Kidder Mathews represented
EYELEVEL in the transaction.
