Last month, YIMBY unveiled the UPS package sortation and distribution facility proposed at 1 Red Lion Road in Bustleton, Northeast Philadelphia. The 1,004,000-square-foot structure is currently the city’s largest single proposed building in terms of floor area. A few days ago, the development team of Commercial Development Company, Inc, Blue Rock, Bohler, and NORR submitted a revised Civic Design Review package, which shows design changes that deal mainly with landscaping at the 140-acre site and the way the facility will relate to the surrounding residential neighborhood.
Philadelphia’s largest currently planned structure sits not in a booming district such as Center City or University City, but in a low-density area on the city’s outskirts in Northeast Philadelphia. A 1,004,000-square-foot UPS package sortation and distribution facility is proposed at 1 Red Lion Road in Bustleton, Northeast Philadelphia. The development comes from a collaboration between Commercial Development Company, Inc., Blue Rock, Bohler, and NORR. The 140-acre sits sits at the northeast corner of Red Lion Road and Sandmeyer Lane in an industrially zoned area.
