DH Property Holdings has broken ground on its 5000 Richmond St. industrial project in Philadelphia. The two-building Class A development is expected to come online in the final quarter of 2024.

CBRE Senior Vice President Andrew Green and Vice Chairman Thomas Monahan will oversee leasing for the distribution facilities.

The infill site will combine modern logistics operations with inbound/outbound access, Green said in a statement, noting that the site is close to public transportation. The property, which is located within an Opportunity Zone, offers 10-year real estate tax abatements and will have efficient loading, parking and circulation.
