Wakefern Food Corp.

600 York Street, Elizabeth, NJ

In the fall of 2013, Elberon Development Group delivered a new state-of-the-art 524,000 square foot distribution center to Wakefern Food Corp. on the same site that Elberon’s founder, David O. Evans, had constructed Wakefern’s original building 50 years prior. The NAIOP award winning project involved temporarily relocating Wakefern to an alternate site while assembling 50 contiguous acres, demolishing the existing buildings, redeveloping the site, and then returning the tenant to its original location. The project not only delivered a new modern efficient warehouse to Wakefern, but also preserved and created approximately 350 jobs in the city over the next several years. The $50 million project was delivered on time and on budget.
