SALISBURY, MARYLAND – March 22, 2021 – In partnership with the City of Seaford and Gillis Gilkerson, Principal Brad Gillis of NAI Coastal recently brokered a lease bringing Amazon, one of the world’s largest, most innovative companies, to the Delmarva Peninsula. Beginning in May 2021, the ‘Big Five’ corporation will occupy +/- 104,000 square feet and 12-acres of commercial land at 1700 Dulaney Street in Seaford, Delaware.
“Sussex County is in the midst of experiencing rapid, widespread residential and commercial growth,” said Gillis. “Amazon’s establishment of a physical presence on the Delmarva Peninsula signals the community’s continued development alongside its population.”
Delivery stations like the one planned for Dulaney Street allow Amazon to provide fast and efficient delivery for customers, as well as countless jobs to communities nationwide.
“We are very happy Amazon chose Seaford,” said Mayor David Genshaw. “The creation of new jobs is a huge win for our City and beyond. We look forward to working with them in their efforts to better serve their customers here on Delmarva.”
Upon completion of renovations, the new Amazon facility is expected to bring hundreds of full and part-time jobs starting at $15 per hour to the City of Seaford. With parking for 550+ vehicles and convenient access to interstates leading to Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and Wilmington, the Dulaney Street property is positioned to become one of the Eastern Shore’s leading distribution centers.
“As the world’s largest online marketplace and one of the country’s top private employers, Amazon is a lucrative addition to our regional economy.” added Gillis.
Prior to leasing, Gillis negotiated the sale of the Dulaney Street property on behalf of Gillis Gilkerson’s development team, a group well-known for their ability to maximize the value of underutilized buildings. In a matter of months, the team transformed the vacant +/- 208,000 square foot warehouse into an industrial asset.
Senior Vice President Dan Rattay of CBRE co-brokered the lease alongside Gillis, acting as the tenant representative. For more information on the transaction, contact Brad Gillis at email@example.com or call 410-543-5115.
