Boston—Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announced that it has recently completed a 355,000-square-foot lease to Quiet Logistics at 64 Jackson Road in Devens, MA.
NKF Executive Managing Directors Rick Schuhwerk, Ed Jarosz and Tony Coskren, along with Managing Director Brian Pinch and Associate Lizzie Kusbit represented the property owner, GFI Partners, in the transaction.
Built in 2000, 64 Jackson Road is a 355,000-square-foot, Class A warehouse/distribution facility on 34.89 acres. Located in Devens Commerce Center, 64 Jackson Road is a first-class facility featuring 26’ ceilings, full AC and humidity control, state-of-the-art infrastructure, 28,000 AMPS and a full-service cafeteria. GFI Partners acquired 64 Jackson Road vacant in March of 2018.
Relocating from 184,077 square feet at 235 Barnum Road in Devens, Quiet Logistics is a fulfillment provider specializing in innovating brands and e-commerce solutions. The rapidly growing firm sought larger space to house its workforce and signed the full-building lease at 64 Jackson Road. NKF represented ownership in the lease negotiations while Quiet Logistics was represented by Colliers International.
“Quiet Logistics will enjoy the benefit of expanding their footprint within Devens in a state-of-the-art facility with unmatched distribution access throughout New England,” said Coskren. “The transaction is a testament to GFI’s creativity and forward thinking, having acquired the vacant facility just six months prior securing the full-building user.”
