The Bristol Commerce Center will be home to a location of Urban Outfitters, a clothing retailer. The warehouse will occupy a new 309,000 square foot industrial facility on 20 of the park’s 81 acres. (That’s about the size of two Wal-Marts.) Construction began the first week of December and the future fabric warehouse is expected to be ready for occupancy by mid-year.
“We are thrilled to welcome iconic Philadelphia brand Urban Outfitters as the future tenant of our facility currently under construction” said Jamie Herring, the principal of Herring Properties, the developer of BCC. Herring Properties also recently finished the construction of 2151 Green Lane, an 80,000 square-foot industrial facility leased to Hughes Enterprises, at the Bristol Commerce Center.
Bristol Commerce Center is located in a designated Keystone Opportunity Expansion Zone (KOEZ) through 2022. The KOEZ designation provides substantial financial tax abatements to businesses looking to relocate or expand in the area. Current tenants include XPO Logistics, AirGas Corporation, Goodyear and PetValu.
