RBJ Represents Campanelli In Sale Of 15 Liberty Way, Franklin, To KWL, Inc./Champagne Logistics

International Shipping Company Purchases Industrial Building For $4.3 Million

BOSTON – May 30, 2013 – Richards Barry Joyce & Partners, LLC (RBJ&P), a full-service commercial real estate advisory firm, announced today that it brokered the sale of 15 Liberty Way in the Franklin Industrial Park (Franklin, Mass.) on behalf of Campanelli.

The 92,490 square foot industrial building was purchased by KWL, Inc./Champagne Logistics, an international shipping company.  The new location will serve as the company’s corporate headquarters and principal distribution facility.

15 Liberty Way was originally constructed by Campanelli Construction in 1996 for FedEx and featured custom crossdock and loading door capabilities, 120’ depth, high trailer and car parking ratio, highly secure site and heavy floor load.  The master-planned Franklin Industrial Park provides convenient trucking access to Interstate 495, I-95 and the Mass Pike.

“The building was designed specifically for FedEx in the mid-90s for rapid and efficient overnight distribution.  KWL’s business needs are a perfect fit to use the building in its current configuration,” said Robert DeMarco, Partner, Campanelli.  “The transaction was a ‘win/win’ for Buyer and Seller.”  DeMarco went on to say, “I credit RBJ for their thorough knowledge of this submarket.  Their recommendation to contemplate a sale to KWL on this leasing assignment was a great result for all parties.”

John Lashar, partner, and Chris Skeffington, senior vice president, of RBJ&P represented Campanelli.  RBJ&P’s Paul Leone represented KWL, Inc./Champagne Logistics.
