Colliers International Chicago’s Ned Frank represented Global Logistical Connections, LLC, in its 100,000-square-foot lease at Route 6 Business Center located at 23647 W. Eames St. in Channahon, IL. The lease represents a significant expansion from its current location, 60 Rawls Rd. in Des Plaines, IL, where the company has 17,000 square feet. The new lease commences in June 2021.
Route 6 is a new, 442,000-square-foot, Class A, cross-dock warehouse facility that features 36’ clear ceiling height, 75 exterior docks (expandable), 88 trailer spots, 50’ x 53’ column bays, 60’ loading bays, two drive-in doors and a 7” reinforced concrete slab system. The building has immediate access to the full interchange at I-55.
Global Logistical Connections, Inc. cites growth and demand in the e-commerce business as drivers for the move. Site selection came down to the state-of-the-art features of the property, along with abundant trailer parking, access to the U.S. Interstate system, and proximity to the nearby BNSF intermodal. The new space also allows for future growth.
Colliers David Bercu, Charles Canale and Kataline Villalpando represented Clarion, owners of Route 6 Business Center, in the transaction.
