MANASSAS, VA-SMS Direct is expanding by 22,340 square feet at an industrial building located at 7540 Mason King Ct. here, bringing its total occupancy to 72,300 square feet. The building’s owner–New Canaan, CT.-based Cambridge Hanover LP–was represented by Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers’ Edward Harrell in the transaction.

Located in the Norfolk Southern Industrial Park, 7540 Mason King Ct. is one of two buildings that total 151,320 square feet of warehouse and distribution space. There is still an additional 75,000 square feet vacant in the space. The asking rate is $6.95 NNN, Harrell tells GlobeSt.com.

SMS, a direct mail company, is expanding because it is bringing its mailing and printing operations in-house. Kellogg occupied the space SMS will be leasing, using it for distribution, Harrell says. Kellogg left the building last fall when it moved its operations to West Virginia.
