Trammell Crow Co. broke ground on a 90.05-acre parcel of land in the Valley View Business Park that it purchased from the Scranton Lackawanna Industrial Building Company (SLIBCO) in late 2018 for the construction of a new one-million-square-foot speculative distribution facility.

“We are very pleased that a renowned developer like Trammell Crow Company has chosen to invest in our region — with our quality workforce, prime location and access to major markets — to create jobs and address the demands of the growing e-commerce industry,” said Bob Durkin, president, The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce. “We thank Jessup Borough, Valley View School District and Lackawanna County for approving the LERTA tax abatement program in order to make this deal possible.”
