Daniel E. Fogarty Jr., Vice President of Conor Commercial Real Estate, a member of The McShane Companies, announced the completion of the new 347,400 square foot build-to-suit corporate headquarters and warehouse facility on behalf of Orbus Exhibit & Display Group. Developed by Conor Commercial and situated within Union Pointe, an 80-acre industrial/office business park and a venture of Conor Commercial and Gallagher and Henry, Orbus will enjoy a highly-strategic location at the northeast quadrant of I-355 and I-55 in Woodridge, Illinois.
“We are proud to provide completion on-schedule to allow our valued client, Orbus Exhibit & Display Group, to take occupancy of its new corporate headquarters that will serve as a showcase for this growing organization,” remarked Fogarty. “We welcome the new employees to the Union Pointe business park who will enjoy this premier setting and convenient location. We are confident that the new facility will provide the optimal environment for Orbus’ continued growth and success.”
Orbus Exhibit & Display Group is a market-leading, privately owned group of companies that specialize in the manufacture and trade-only supply of portable modular and custom modular exhibit and display products, graphics and solutions. The firm will complete the transition of its Illinois-based operations in June 2014 thus consolidating its Bolingbrook and Niles facilities to better support their growing customer base and over 300 employees.
The new build-to-suit features 272,511 square feet of 32′ clear warehouse space, 20 dock doors, a 20,000 square foot production area, a two-floor, 55,000 square foot office featuring a two-story atrium lobby, and generous on-site parking. To accommodate future growth, the building was designed and constructed to support an 82,000 square foot expansion and a 100-car parking addition.
McShane Construction Company and Ware Malcomb provided the comprehensive design/build services for this build-to-suit development. Jack Rosenberg, SIOR, and Fred Regnery, Colliers International, represented Orbus in the lease transaction. Brian Carroll and Jim Cummings of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank represented ownership.
