Ridge Development, the industrial development arm of Transwestern Development Co., announced it has broken ground on two buildings in RidgePort Logistics Center for the new headquarters of Consolidated Distribution Corporation (CDC).
The foodservice supply chain logistics company is relocating from Lemont and combining five distribution locations into preleased space: a rail-served, 111,244-square-foot freezer build-to-suit and 286,867 square feet of a 574,867-square-foot (expandable to 1,078,867 square feet) ambient distribution facility (Building B). Owned by a joint venture between Ridge and Elion Partners LLC, the buildings are slated for delivery in October 2015.
With CDC’s arrival, RidgePort will continue to be a major entry point for food and related operations serving the Midwest.
Building B, the 574,867-square-foot ambient distribution facility, has 288,000 square feet of best-in-class space remaining for lease. Featuring a 40-foot clear height, the building is expandable to 1,078,867 square feet. JLL, with Keith Stauber as team leader, is the listing agent for Building B and RidgePort. Alston Construction is the general contractor on both of the new facilities.
