Strengthening our Network in the Northeast
The Northeast region of the United States is comprised of 11 states with 10 MSAs that have more than one million people. In all it is home to approximately 64 million residents and 134 Fortune 500 companies. New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. are some of the most concentrated, affluent consumer markets in the world; all can be reached in under a 4.5 hour drive, creating demand for industrial space that is exceptionally strong and unique. The Port of New York/New Jersey is the busiest port on the eastern seaboard and the third largest port market in the United States with 80% of all of the goods that come into the Port staying within a 100 mile radius, driving the need for distribution facilities to service the consumer base. GLP’s strategic investment in the region consists of 132 properties totaling 29.9 million square feet across 3 key markets, including class A bulk distribution buildings as well as rail-served and port-served assets in critical infill locations.
GLP's Key Markets: New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, D.C./Baltimore.
