LOVELAND, COLO. — November 2, 2016 — McWHINNEY is pleased to announce that Safelite, the automotive glass and claims management company, has signed a lease to become a tenant at Centerra Industrial, a new development located at 5195 East 37th Street in Loveland, Colorado. Completed in spring of 2016, Centerra Industrial has approximately 84,000 square feet of Class A industrial space located in the award-winning Centerra master-planned community. Safelite is leasing 41,945 square feet with plans to occupy in the Spring of 2017. Mike Eyer and Kyle Lundy of CBRE Fort Collins served as advisors on the project and are leasing the space on behalf of McWHINNEY.
“Centerra Industrial is a truly unique project for Northern Colorado,” said Mr. Eyer, Vice President, CBRE Fort Collins. “McWHINNEY identified a specific need in our community for a Class A distribution facility and designed a building that offers everything a distribution user could want—from dock-high loading and 24-foot clear heights, to its central location. For a successful company like Safelite, there’s simply nothing else that can compare to Centerra Industrial in our area.”
The development’s location within Centerra provides access to the master-planned community’s more than 7,500 employees, 1.5 million square feet of retail including over 30 restaurants, three hotels, a health club, K-8 STEAM school, and miles of trails and open space with views of the Front Range.
Centerra Industrial is the first building in the Centerra Industrial Park. McWHINNEY developed the site speculatively to accommodate uses ranging from office to light assembly, research and development, light manufacturing, cold storage and warehouse distribution. The Class A facility includes 22 dock-high doors, two drive-in doors, 24-foot clear heights, 52-foot by 50-foot bay spacing, skylights, ESFR sprinklers and a 1.5 to 1,000 parking ratio. The site is located on 13 acres near the Fort Collins-Loveland Airport with direct access to Interstate 25 and Highway 34, and regional access to Interstate 80 and Interstate 70.
McWHINNEY is Northern Colorado’s premier developer with expertise in building office, industrial, retail, mixed-use, and hospitality assets. The Loveland and Denver-based company has developed more than 6,000 acres and 6 million square feet of property across the Rocky Mountain region and West Coast.
