Congressional Seafood to build USD 8.9m facility
Merritt Properties, NAFCO and Congressional Seafood Company have joined forces to construct a new seafood distribution facility in Jessup, Md., USA. The 88,000-square-foot building will serve as NAFCO and Congressional’s new headquarters.
The $8.9 million project is scheduled to be finished by February 2015 and allows for an 18,000-square-foot future expansion. It will be developed by Merritt Construction Services, a division of Merritt Properties, on 5.5 acres at 7775 S. Chesapeake Bay Court, adjacent to the Maryland Seafood Market. The parcel of land was acquired from the Maryland Food Center Authority. Merritt Properties and Stanley Pearlman, president of NAFCO, will jointly own the land and the building. Merritt Properties will serve as managing partner.
