In prepared remarks, Robert Smietana, vice chairman & CEO of HSA Commercial Real Estate, said that the Interstate 94 corridor, where all four developments broke ground, is experiencing high demand for modern warehouse space. The interstate is a well-traveled logistics route, which has recently seen high infrastructure investments.

Additional projects underway

The other two developments, located along the same corridor in Illinois and Wisconsin, are both anticipated to be delivered in July 2023. In Illinois, HSA Commercial Real Estate broke ground on the Delany Commerce Center II, while in Wisconsin the company began developing Building IV of Park 94.

The building will feature 36-foot clear heights, 28 truck doors, four drive-in doors, 300 car parking spots and 130-foot truck court depth.

The first phase of the project, next to phase two, is a 218-500-square-foot distribution center completed by HSA Commercial Real Estate in 2014. The architect for phase two is Harris Architects, the civil engineer is Manhard Consulting and the general contractor is similarly PREMIER Design + Build Group. Colliers will lease the Delancey Commerce Center II.

Construction on Park 94, Building IV began in October. Located at 975 Carrington Blvd., in Mount Pleasant, Wis., the warehouse is part of Park 94, a 184-acre industrial complex at the corner of I-94 and Highway 20. The Class A industrial park completed its first phase in 2009 and includes Seda International Packaging Group, InSinkErator and Ryder Last Mile Inc., among its tenants.
