Binswanger named exclusive agent for Roanoke County building that now houses Home Shopping Network
Blue Ridge Partners LLC has named Binswanger, a Philadelphia-based real estate firm, as the exclusive agent for the sale or lease of a 359,125-square-foot industrial facility on 28 acres in Roanoke County that now houses a Home Shopping Network Distribution Center.
The property, located at One Avery Row, includes a 28,433-square-foot, second-story office space. Constructed in 1990 and 2000, the facility has overhead dock-high doors and parking for 450 cars.
It’s located about five miles east of Interstate 81 via a four-lane 220 connector and sits adjacent to four-lane U. S. 460, which travels between Roanoke and Lynchburg.
Binswanger, an international full-service real estate organization with offices throughout the U.S., Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, said it is aggressively marketing the property to national and international prospects.
Florida-based retailer HSN, which leases the facility, said in June that it planned to close the order fulfillment facility in Roanoke and move the operations to Piney Flats, Tenn.
The facility employs about 350 people. HSN said it couldn’t accommodate the expanding needs of the home shopping distribution network or its plans for automation. The closure is expected to be conducted in phases, beginning in April 2016.
