GAP, Inc., the parent company for GAP, Old Navy and Banana Republic labels, purchased 175 acres in central New York State, to locate its Northeast Distribution Center. Master planned for 3 buildings totaling over 2.5 million SF, Phase I was completed in 2000, consisting of 1.4 million SF separated into 6 MFL areas. Providing for clear heights of 36′ and 44′ the facility incorporates state of the art materials handling equipment and racking, which feed a cross-docked shipping wing.
A 2-story 50,000 SF office/support area provides for central security, employee lockers, cafeteria and toilets, as well as MIS and administrative offices. Satellite offices, toilets and break rooms at the sortation area accommodate the population center of the complex.
Phase II consisted of 850,000 SF of receiving and hi-cube storage space for GAP, and was initiated immediately upon completion of Phase I, along with a second, 100,000 SF shipping wing addition to the Old Navy Building. An overhead conveyor link transports product to the Phase I building for final sortation and shipping.
Constructed of tilt-up concrete wall panels, this project claims the most area of tilt-up panel for a single building at 670,582 SF for Phase I.
