The site is the former Fort Gillem Army base. The 1,000,000 SF cold storage facility features:
- 34,000 SF of perishable space.
- 283,000 SF of dry 80’ tall high bay Witron ASRS dynamic and automated order picking.
- Over 100,000 SF of office space.
- 60,000 SF of ancillary buildings for salvage, vehicle maintenance, truck wash, and fueling.
