PHILADELPHIA — Locally based development and investment firm BG Capital will build an $85 million cold storage project on a seven-acre site in Philadelphia’s Port Richmond neighborhood. New Jersey-based cold storage operator FreezPak Logistics has committed to leasing the 170,117-square-foot facility on a triple-net basis, with the expectation of adding about 60 new permanent jobs to the local economy. Building features will include a clear height of 75 feet, an automated inventory storage and retrieval system, 20 loading docks, 30 trailer parking stalls and 60 parking spaces. Construction is scheduled to begin in the third quarter. New Jersey-based OceanFirst Bank has provided $42.5 million construction-to-permanent loan for the project, and Nuveen Green Capital has committed another $30 million in financing.
