Valley Logistics Industrial Site Breaks Ground

WINCHESTER, Va. Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. is pleased to announce site work has begun at Valley Logistics, in Winchester, Virginia. When completed, this project will offer nearly two million square feet of industrial facilities across multiple buildings to service the DC Metropolitan and Shenandoah Valley areas.

The 145-acre property was purchased by Peterson Companies in January of this year. The property is uniquely positioned for distribution as it services 40 percent of the US population within an eight-hour drive.

“We are confident Winchester is an ideal market to grow Peterson Companies’ industrial platform,” noted Taylor Chess, Development President, Peterson Companies. “The property offers proximity to Washington, DC but also connectivity to the Virginia Inland Port as well as CSX rail.”

“Valley Logistics is officially under construction with tenant occupancy dates in 2023. I am thrilled to be leading this large-scale industrial development for the Peterson Companies,” said Katie Oosterbeek, Assistant Vice President, Development, Peterson Companies. “While we are excited to introduce the largest cross-dock facility along the I-81 Corridor, we also have several build-to-suit opportunities for tenants in the 40,000- to 600,000- square foot range.”

“Valley Logistics is not only unique in size but is also one of the only rail-served mega-industrial buildings in the Mid-Atlantic,” said John Dettleff, Executive Managing Director, JLL.

JLL will handle the leasing and marketing efforts for Peterson Companies at Valley Logistics.
