St. John Properties Inks 94 KSF Lease in Maryland

St. John Properties has signed a 93,800-square-foot lease at 4754 Arcadia Drive, a 120,000-square-foot high-bay warehouse in Frederick, Md. CBRE Executive Vice President Jon Casella represented the tenant, Power Solutions, while the owner was represented in-house.

St. John Properties financed the development with an $11 million construction loan in 2021, provided by Sandy Spring Bank, CommercialEdge data shows. The asset came online earlier this year. Another tenant at the property is Builders Design, which occupies 15,641 square feet, the same source shows.

Completed on a speculative basis, the facility is part of Arcadia Business Park, a 519,954-square-foot mixed-use development. The 61-acre campus currently comprises four flex/R&D buildings amounting to more than 160,000 square feet and two warehouse facilities totaling approximately 240,000 square feet. Plans call for two more flex/R&D buildings, each measuring about 60,000 square feet.

The building features 32-foot clear heights, 130-foot truck courts, 35 dock-high loading doors and two drive-in doors, together with 250 parking spaces. The new tenant plans to employ 90 persons at its new space.

Other leases include the firm’s 48,000-square-foot headquarters at Melford Town Center in Bowie, Md., and a 23,280-square-foot space at Ashburn Crossing in Ashburn, Va.
