No speculation about strength of spec industrial in Chicago’s I-55 corridor

As Chicago’s industrial market shows no signs of slowing, one particularly bright spot is the Interstate-55 Corridor. In addition to offering accessibility and visibility along its namesake thoroughfare and Interstate-355, which runs through it, the submarket is accessible to both Chicago airports and nearby expressways, including I-80 to the south, I-88 to the north, I-294 to the east and I-355.
