Browning/Duke Realty Break Ground for IDS Warehouse at AllPoints Midwest
Order fulfillment company’s corporate headquarters will be housed in new 450,738 SF facility that Browning/Duke Realty will deliver in early 2016.
(Indianapolis, IN) Integrated Distribution Services (IDS), a provider of supply chain solutions for e-commerce and direct-to-consumer retailers, broke ground on Monday, July 27, 2015 for its new fulfillment center and corporate headquarters in AllPoints Midwest. Scheduled for delivery in early 2016, the 450,738-square-foot facility is being built to IDS’ specifications on a 28.2-acre site in the Plainfield, Indiana business park, an area that is fast becoming a hub for companies involved in cutting-edge logistics and e-commerce business.
One of the newest and largest modern bulk distribution parks in the Indianapolis area, AllPoints Midwest, which is being jointly developed by Duke Realty and Browning, includes 958 acres of land with a planned 13.6 million square feet of bulk distribution buildings. IDS joins the growing number of fulfillment centers that have opened in the park over the last few years and led to Indianapolis becoming one of the nation’s largest fulfillment center locations according to the Indianapolis Star.
The park also offers unparalleled intermodal transportation opportunities in the Midwest. Located near the Indianapolis International Airport, Interstate 70 and CSX Railroad’s Avon intermodal yard, AllPoints Midwest companies benefit from improved shipping speed and reliability and avoid the Chicago intermodal rail bottleneck with intermodal rail service to and from most major markets.
IDS’s new facility will be located on AllPoints Parkway. The Browning/Duke Realty precast concrete building will include 32′ clear height, a TPO energy-efficient roofing system, 140′ truck court and parking spaces for 250 automobiles. A 15,000-square-foot office will be incorporated into the building, and interior walls will be added so that a portion of the building can be air-conditioned for food-grade use. The building also will include 37 ‒ 9′ x 10′ dock doors and three drive-in doors.
To-date, Browning/Duke Realty has developed five buildings in All Points Midwest totaling 3.8 million square feet, all of which are 100 percent occupied. The partnership also has a 936,510-square-foot, speculative building, which is known as AllPoints Midwest 6, under construction that is slated for delivery in June. Approximately 475 acres laid out for eight additional development sites remain in AllPoints Midwest.
Parties interested in leasing space in AllPoints Midwest 6 or build-to-suit or preleasing opportunities are invited to contact Duke Realty at 317.808.6000 or Browning Investments at 317.344.7300.
