Ambrose Property Group celebrated the start of construction on Mount Comfort Logistics Center Building III during a groundbreaking ceremony last month with Progressive Logistics and the Hancock (Indiana) Economic Development Council.

 The 298,000-square-foot build-to-suit cold storage facility for Progressive Logistics will feature approximately 223,000 square feet of freezer/cooler space, a 65,000-square-foot cold dock, office space, an ALTA Refrigeration EXPERT system, a -10 degree Fahrenheit operating temperature in freezer storage and 35 degree operating temperature in cold dock.

 “Indianapolis continues to be an attractive market for manufacturing, logistics and e-commerce companies in need of high-quality buildings,” said Ambrose Executive Vice President of Development Grant Goldman. “That includes meeting specialty needs. We’re excited to work with Progressive Logistics as we anticipate cold storage demand for the food, grocery, pharmaceutical and other industries will continue to grow.”

 Building III marks Progressive Logistics’ second building in Mount Comfort Logistics Center. The warehousing and logistics provider leased a 505,872-square-foot building last year from Ambrose.

 “We are pleased to again be partnering with Ambrose Property Group as we continue to grow our footprint in the Indianapolis Market,” said Progressive Logistics President and CEO Doug Hayes. “Once completed, Progressive Logistics facilities will total 1 million square feet of freezer and climate-controlled space offering SQF, AIB and Organic Certification catering to the food industry from raw ingredients to finished goods.”

 Located just off Interstate 70, Mount Comfort Logistics Center is located on West County Road 300 North at North County Road 400 West along the Mount Comfort Corridor in Hancock County.

 Ambrose has plans for up to four additional Class A distribution buildings to the Mount Comfort Logistics Center, bringing the total developed space to more than 3.5 million square feet across the park’s east and west campuses.
