The Imperial Light Industrial portfolio, located in Pittsburgh, consists of two newly constructed Class A industrial properties totaling 148,172 square feet. The buildings feature flexible and efficient floor plates that can meet a wide range of tenant needs including office, distribution and laboratory capacities, and have been carefully designed to include LED lighting, sprinkler systems ESFR, one loading door per 8,232 square feet, in addition to significant tenant amenities. The portfolio can accommodate a range of tenant requirements starting at 6,240 square feet, a unique offering in the industrial market, making these highly functional industrial properties extremely expensive to replicate. The Imperial Light Industrials Portfolio is located in Chapman Westport, a newly developed and planned industrial park in one of Pittsburgh’s most dynamic and desirable locations. The park provides convenient access to Pittsburgh’s population centers and transportation arteries. The main tenants of this industrial pocket are Amazon, General Electric, Gordon Foods, Max Finkelstein and Niagara Bottling.

The building is conveniently located with exceptional access to Interstates 80/35, providing interstate transportation from coast to coast and from Canada to Mexico. As Iowa’s largest city, Des Moines enjoys a high concentration of well-paying jobs that have helped attract and retain a highly skilled workforce. According to CoStar, the metro has grown rapidly in recent years, growing nearly 17% between 2010 and 2020. This makes Des Moines one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the Midwest and nation.
