WHITE MARSH - Construction began today on Merritt Properties' new 750,000-square-foot White Marsh Interchange Park, according to the developer. The company's plan includes up to nine single-story structures, filling the region's escalating need for light industrial space.

The construction's initial phase includes three structures, offering a combined space of 235,900 square feet. The buildings will boast 20- to 32-foot clear heights, extensive truck courts with rear-loaded docks, and drive-in features. Plentiful parking and trailer storage will be available.

"Our enthusiasm for this project stems from our commitment to support local businesses," Scott Dorsey, CEO of Merritt Companies, said in a statement. "We've noticed an influx of businesses seeking a location in this area while the supply remains extremely constrained. The park will undoubtedly stimulate job creation and economic expansion."

Situated off Interstate 95 near Interstate 695 at 10301 Philadelphia Road in White Marsh, the 56-acre venture is nestled within Merritt's Baltimore County east portfolio, which is currently 95% occupied.

"The initial phase will furnish flex/light industrial spaces along with bulk opportunities for businesses in need of spaces ranging from 3,000 to 167,000 square feet," said Whit Levering from Merritt's leasing team.

"We're confident that White Marsh Interchange Park will aid companies in employee recruitment and retention thanks to its prime location and outdoor amenities, like seating areas, a walking path, and lawn games."

The site, initially a General Motors Baltimore Global Propulsions Systems location established in 2000 for transmission and electric motor production, was acquired by Merritt in 2021 following its closure in 2019.

Merritt Construction Services, Merritt Companies' construction division, will oversee the project, with the first phase delivery anticipated in spring 2024.

"Baltimore County welcomes Merritt Properties' investment in this vibrant redevelopment project, which is set to house several new businesses, create job opportunities, and bring new prospects to our communities," expressed Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski. "We eagerly anticipate Merritt Properties' transformative vision for this site, promising economic growth in eastern Baltimore County for the foreseeable future."
