300,000+ square-foot distribution center approved for River Road in Upper Merion

Back in September 2019, MoreThanTheCurve.com reported on a plan by Foxfield Industrial to demolish an existing chemical processing plant that has occupied a site along River Road in Upper Merion for over 30 years and redevelop the site with a Class A, 36’ clear industrial property, called King of Prussia Logistics Hub.

The Philadelphia Business Journal reported today that Upper Merion has approved the plan allowing it to move forward. From the Journal:

Upper Merion officials have approved plans for the development of a 331,428-square-foot warehouse-distribution center at 900 River Road.

The building is, at this point, being developed on speculation, which has become more common as demand for industrial facilities remains high. Similar buildings recently developed around the region without any tenants have been leasing up to Amazon and other companies looking for last-mile delivery locations. That bodes well for 900 River Road.

No word on when the project will begin construction of the new facility.
