DCT Industrial Trust Inc. has acquired a 32.6 acre land parcel in Romeoville, within the southern I-55 industrial submarket of Chicago. The company plans to start construction in May on DCT Boldt Park, a 604,000-square-foot, cross-dock facility. The building will incorporate DCT Industrial’s sustainable design initiative and DCT Industrial will seek LEED certification on the building.
DCT Industrial is the developer of the project and has hired Ryan Companies as the general contractor for the building. The project is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2012 and will complement DCT Industrial’s existing 5.6 million-square-foot Chicago portfolio, including unconsolidated assets.
