Transwestern Brokers Sale of 392,500-Square-foot industrial warehouse


Firm to Exclusively Handle Leasing and Management of the Property


(COLUMBIA, MD.) – Transwestern has announced that it brokered the sale of a 392,500-square-foot, Class A industrial warehouse building located at 10000 Franklin Square Drive in Baltimore County’s East Industrial submarket. Principal Real Estate Investors acquired the building from Charming Shoppes for an undisclosed price.


“Class A product is dwindling,” stated Mark Glagola, Transwestern senior vice president. “This is a unique opportunity at a fraction of the replacement cost.”


Originally built in 1995, 10000 Franklin Square Drive was the state-of-the-art east coast product distribution facility for Hollywood Studio Warner Brothers. The building features a 42-foot clear height, ESFR sprinkler capacity, more than 170 parking spaces and above-market trailer storage areas. In addition, the property offers unparalleled signage possibilities with its strategic location, virtually on top of I-95 and adjacent to extensive retail amenities.


Glagola and Tom Gentner, senior vice president, represented Principal Real Estate Investors in the acquisition. Transwestern’s Brian Watts and Tom Gentner will handle the leasing of the building along with Transwestern’s management of the property.
