The Deal

In a joint venture between Equus Capital Partners, Ltd. (“Equus”), and its investment partner, Equus announced commencement of construction on I-81 Commerce Park, a class-A 1,100,500 square-foot cross-docked distribution, fulfillment and e-commerce industrial facility located in Shippensburg, PA.

Equus, a long time supporter of CREW Philadelphia through Past President and current member Lynn McDowell, awarded the construction contract for I-81 Commerce Park to Irwin & Leighton, Inc. represented in CREW Philadelphia by long-time member, Kathleen Fahy. This is the second recent project that these two CREW Philadelphia member firms have worked on together. The other recent transaction was the lobby renovation at 1000 Chesterbrook Blvd. in Berwyn, PA.

I-81 Commerce Park will offer concrete tilt-up wall panels, 36’ clear heights, 200 loading docks, and is situated on a 100-acre site with the capacity to accommodate 200 additional truck trailer parking spaces. The speculative industrial park is strategically situated along Interstate 81 (“I-81”), with immediate access at Exit 29 and Route 174 (Walnut Bottom Road). It is located within Cumberland County just 40 miles south of Harrisburg, PA, and 15 miles south of Exit 44 in Carlisle, PA.
