prefabrication adds unique
legal and contractual
considerations.
Despite the hurdles,
there is enthusiasm within
the engineering industry
about mass timber due to
its purported environmental
benefits. Timber is
renewable and acts as a
carbon sink, drawing carbon
out of the atmosphere as
trees grow. That carbon
stays captured for many
years within a project. Mass
timber proponents estimate
that wood buildings may
produce less than onequarter the carbon emissions
of steel or concrete.
However, the environmental
advantages are highly
dependent on forestry
management practices and
where the timber is sourced
in relation to the building
site. Nonetheless, the U.S.
supply chain is gaining
options for mass timber, as
facilities grow outside of the
Pacific Northwest. In 2018,
the first CLT plant opened
in Alabama. According
to a June 2019 analysis
by WoodWorks − Wood
Products Council, 221 mass
timber buildings are under
construction or have been
completed in recent years in
the U.S., and an additional
378 are in the design phase.

PROLOGIS

The first multistory warehouse in the United States
is a 590,000-square-foot facility located in Seattle.

Multistory Warehouse
Makes Debut in U.S.
Driven by the need to deliver e-commerce goods to urban locations within
tight time frames, developers are looking toward multistory warehouses in
urban locations as a solution. The first U.S. property of this kind is the Prologis
Georgetown Crossroads facility in Seattle, which announced its two key tenants.
Developed as a speculative project by Prologis, the 590,000-square-foot facility
was completed in 2018. The Wall Street Journal reported in September 2019 that
Amazon will occupy 500,000 square feet, with Home Depot, Inc., leasing the
remainder.
Although common in Asia and in other densely populated areas of the world,
multistory warehouses are just now being designed and constructed in the U.S.
Demand for efficient, last-mile distribution in congested and dense cities makes this
project type attractive-even considering the high land costs of urban sites.
The Prologis Georgetown Crossroads facility has a first floor that occupies
239,029 square feet, a 28-foot clear height, 62 dock-high doors, 2 drive-in doors,
130 truck courts, and 60 truck aprons. The 170,331-square-foot second floor has a
24-foot clear height and an elevated 130-foot court with two ramps able to handle
large trucks. The third floor offers 180,225 square feet of space with a 16-foot clear
height and two exterior loading docks and three freight elevators. This space also
offers conference rooms, offices, and areas for light manufacturing. n
