Ridge, Transwestern’s industrial development arm, broke ground on its newest facility at Brewster Creek Business Park, a 468-acre, master-planned industrial development in Bartlett, Ill.
Dubbed Ridge Brewster Creek II, the 186,000-square-foot building is slotted for completion by December 2017. Located at 1331-1337 Schiferl Road, the project will include 32-foot clear ceiling heights, an ESFR sprinkler system, two drive-in doors, 50-by-50-foot column spacing, 35 dock doors and 224 parking spaces. The park is located at the intersection of Stearns and Munger Road, within close proximity of Route 59, Interstate 90 and O’Hare International Airport via the planned I-390 expressway.
Strong Demand for Industrial Space
The company also developed Ridge Brewster Creek I, a 271,000-square-foot building. The asset is currently 50 percent leased to Winhere Brake Parts.
“With the recent completion of Ridge Brewster Creek I, the timing was right to pursue another compelling opportunity at Brewster Creek Business Park,” said Darcie Fankhauser, senior vice president at Ridge, in prepared remarks. “Demand for large blocks of high-quality industrial space in DuPage County remains strong, and Ridge Brewster Creek II will be an ideal facility for light manufacturing and food industry users.”
Newmark Knight Frank will handle leasing for the development, Triumph Construction Services Corp. will handle construction, Harris Architects Inc. is designing the project and Eriksson Engineering Associates Ltd. is serving as civil engineer.
In July, Ridge broke ground on Charleston Logistics Center, a 686,300-square-foot industrial project in Jedburg, a submarket of Charleston, S.C. The facility is slated for completion in the first quarter of 2018.
