Darwin Realty facilitated a lease between Axis Warehouse Management and CenterPoint Properties for the third party logistics company’s new, 174,178-square-foot space at 500 Country Club Drive in Bensenville, Illinois.
CenterPoint Properties’ senior vice president of asset management, Danielle Radtke, and their attorney, Jerome Richman, of Richmond Breslin, LLP supervised the transaction. Axis Warehouse executives Frank Pagone, Ed Louis and Daniel Goldberg, along with their attorney, John Chitkowski of Chitkowski Law Offices, worked with the brokerage team. Darwin Realty president, Rick Daly, led the transaction, with assistance from managing broker, George Cibula.
“Axis liked that the building has sufficient truck loading, trailer parking and rail service, as well as easy access to O’Hare International Airport,” Cibula said. “This is one of just a handful of buildings still on the market in this size range and submarket.”
The 1974-construction building has 22-foot clear height ceilings, 31 exterior docks and two drive-in doors. The new distribution tenant will also use rail siding near the building to bring containers to the area’s easily accessible railways. The space has parking for 19 trailers and 48 cars and 6,300 square feet of office space. 500 Country Club Drive is one of very few properties with direct rail access to the building within the O’Hare submarket.
Axis Warehouse Management also occupies a 112,000-square-foot building in Elk Grove Village, Illinois and 300,000 square feet of food-grade warehouse space in Bartlett, Illinois. The company can transport full truck loads, less than truckloads and specialized equipment, as well as coordinating door-to-door moves throughout the lower 48 states and Canada. Axis Warehouse Management moved into the Country Club Drive space on October 1st.
