Chamber Buys Property

November 10, 2018

JESSUP Trammell Crow Company bought 90 acres in the Valley View Business Park from Scranton Lackawanna Industrial Building Company, the industrial development arm of the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce. Trammell Crow will construct the Valley View Trade Center, a 1-million-square-foot speculative distribution facility, with completion eyed by October 2019. Andrew Mele, managing director of Trammell Crow’s Northeast Metro Business Unit, and chamber President Bob Durkin, attributed the siting of the new trade center in Jessup to its location, access to major markets and local workforce, all of which will allow the firm to service demands of the growing e-commerce industry. — JIM LOCKWOOD
