WCIDC Approves Option Agreement with Al. Neyer for 53 Acres at Commerce Crossing at Westmoreland

GREENSBURG, PA, February 21, 2019 – The Westmoreland County Industrial Development Corporation (WCIDC) Board of Directors, Gina Cerilli, Ted Kopas, and Charles W. Anderson, approved an option agreement with Al. Neyer, LLC, for approximately 53-acres located at Commerce Crossing at Westmoreland in Sewickley Township.

The WCIDC is currently in the initial development phases of Commerce Crossing at Westmoreland, and once finished the 206-acre industrial park will feature five pad-ready parcels ranging in size from 18 – 30 acres. With the execution the option agreement Al. Neyer intends to purchase Lot 3 (containing approximately 25.896 acres) and Lot 4 (containing approximately 27.957 acres).

“We are pleased to have just broken ground on the industrial park and already we have attracted an impressive partner such as Al. Neyer to Commerce Crossing at Westmoreland,” said Gina Cerilli, Chairman of the WCIDC and Westmoreland County Board of Commissioners.

Al. Neyer intends a phased approach to construction at Commerce Crossing at Westmoreland building an approximate 240,000 SF speculative warehouse/distribution building on Lot 3, and then a 233,000 SF speculative warehouse/distribution building on Lot 4. Each building will be designed to accommodate more than 200 employees.

“Al. Neyer is excited about the potential Commerce Crossing at Westmoreland brings to the region and we are confident our experience with many like-kind projects and our unique model of development, design, and construction management will provide for a smooth process and lasting success for Westmoreland County and WCIDC,” said Brandon Snyder, Vice President of Real Estate Development for Al. Neyer.

“We are seeing a greater demand for large warehouse and distribution centers with land requirements slightly different from what our current industrial parks have to offer. With the flexibility in our overall park structure and having a prime location adjacent to Interstate 70, we’re well positioned to accommodate the increasing activity and diverse user needs,” said Vice-Chairman Ted Kopas.

At capacity, Commerce Crossing will be able to accommodate a wide range of warehouse, manufacturing, and rail-served distribution facilities.

“Commerce Crossing represents a strategic opportunity for businesses looking for easy access to the interstate highway system and active rail. We are proud to make this industrial park a reality, and provide business with a development that will allow transportation of goods to occur more efficiently,” said Secretary Charles W. Anderson.
