Quantico Associates, Ltd. is a limited partnership organized as a special purpose entity specifically for the project located at 70 Hilton Street. The limited partners of Quantico Associates, Ltd. are Michael D. Moss & Ellen N. Chapman and Jeffrey Edwards. Quantico General, LLC is the General Partner.
Originally developed in 1919 for the Jacob Wilson Estate Foundry, the 2.17 acre property at 70 Hilton Street continued to serve the forging and pipe manufacturing industry for seventy more years before Michael Moss, CEO of Intercontinental Development, acquired the property in 1988.
Located along the Pennsylvania/New Jersey I-78 Corridor, the property posed the challenge of possible environmental contamination with development. Upon purchase, Intercontinental Development immediately contacted the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to address any possible environmental issues and to develop a clean and marketable investment property. The company obtained a release of liability under the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) Land Recycling and Remediation Program (Act 2) and partnered with Earth Data Northeast, Inc from Exton, PA to submit an intent to remediate. Act 2 final approval only came after more than twelve months of testing and adjustments that put the property in compliance with the set guidelines.
Finally, it was time to begin construction. Strict storm water management requirements created the next challenge to the project, a challenge that was met by the sub-grade storm water detention system that Intercontinental Development integrated beneath the rear parking lot. With the storm water detained, Liberty Engineering, Inc of Allentown, PA designed and delivered a 26,500 square foot building to the site. Meanwhile, Schlosser Steel Building, Inc. of Hatfield, PA helped to design a true flex floor plan that includes 20 foot clear-span ceilings. This design would meet the needs of any high racking storage/warehouse facility that occupied the building.
Just as the project neared completion, Heritage Firearms of Raway, NJ joined Intercontinental Development in the development of the property. Arthur Burtis, owner of Heritage Farms, brought his dream of building a "state of the art" indoor shooting range and retail store to the area of Pennsylvania along the New Jersey border. Knowing that the property at 70 Hilton Street was the perfect location to build his vision, Mr. Burtis contacted Intercontinental Development to assist in the design and development of the facility. A multitude of planning hours and board approvals brought the finished 10,600 square foot Heritage Guild of Easton, one of the finest indoor shooting ranges in the country, to the Hilton Street property.
Two years later, Heritage Guild of Easton, under the construction management of Intercontinental Development, has completed the construction of another 16,000 square feet to add additional retail space, and indoor archery range, archery sales, and a bow-tech department for repairs or modifications for any of your archery equipment. Also Heritage is proud to introduce their new 75 foot (6) lane static fire and (8) tactical range for training and qualifying for the public and law enforcement agencies.
70 Hilton Street is a 26,500 SF flex building. Located just off of the Easton Exit of I-78, convenient to New Jersey and the Lehigh Valley. This property previous contained a foundry building, Intercontinental went through a redevelopment process to obtain approvals for the construction of this modern flex facility. Construction was completed in August 2011.
