Hagerstown Logistics Center – Wesel Blvd Reconstruction
Hagerstown Logistics Center:
The project represents a public-private partnership of the City of Hagerstown, Washington County and the State of Maryland working in partnership with NorthPoint Development.
The Hagerstown Logistics Center includes the construction of 4 buildings with a total of 2.2 million square feet and a capital investment of approximately $139 million not including tenant fit-out. An estimated 1500 new jobs will be created, and the first building is expected to be complete by December 2020.
This project is one of several that demonstrates the City’s ability to fast-track development. The Site Plan Review for Buildings 1 & 3 was completed in under 60 days, which is significant given the magnitude of NorthPoint’s project.
The project is utilizing the Enterprise Zone incentive program.
