Blue Ocean recently leased 133,520 square feet of its 692,492-square foot manufacturing and distribution center at 1954 Halethorpe Farms Rd. in Halethorpe, MD to Barker Steel Mid-Atlantic.
Jared Engel and Steve Cornblatt of Trout Daniel & Associates represented Blue Ocean in the transaction. Toby Mink of CBRE advised Barker Steel Mid-Atlantic.
Located off I-95 and I-695 between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, the property’s heavy infrastructure, high clear height and broad column spacing are conducive to businesses like Barker Steel Mid-Atlantic that involve large block manufacturing, as well as other distribution uses.
Purchased in 2015 by Blue Ocean, the property is historically significant in that it was used to manufacture aircraft components for the Allies’ efforts in World War II. After making improvements to the distribution center, Blue Ocean implemented a creative leasing program geared toward the company’s in-house, “hands-on” management approach.
