Goodman Manufacturing, a member of Daikin Industries, Ltd. and a worldwide leader in residential and commercial HVAC, has signed a lease for 21,000 square feet at Dayton Street Partners’ newest development, 4150 N. Knox Avenue on Chicago’s north side. Goodman, which already has space at 815 W. Pershing Road, will expand its presence in Chicago with the lease, using its new space for a showroom, training center and distribution hub. Access to the dense urban population, as well as transportation such as expressways and trains, drove the company’s site selection process.
“We are elated that Goodman has chosen our property,” said Dayton Street managing principal Howard Wedren. “This facility offers them an ideal location to reach their customer base while providing a convenient location for its employees.”
Dayton Street Partners completed construction on the 41,000-square-foot warehouse/distribution center in late 2017. The modern facility features 30-foot clear ceiling height, six docks, four drive-in doors and T8 lighting. The building is located with easy access to I-90, the CTA Orange and Blue lines and the Metra, and provides parking for 50 vehicles. The Chicago-based commercial real estate investment and development firm purchased the 1.6-acre vacant parcel in 2015.
Colliers International I Chicago’s Mike Senner and Steve Kohn represented Dayton Street in the lease.
