Brown Commercial Group negotiated one sale and four leases totaling nearly 24,000 square feet involving expanding businesses in Chicago’s west and northwest suburbs.
“We are seeing steady growth in small to mid-sized industrial businesses in the Chicago area and a shortage of space for their needs,” said Dan Brown, president of Brown Commercial Group. “Many businesses are looking for larger or more efficient space that will allow them to tap into their customers and continue to grow.”
