HSA Commercial Real Estate announced that Wimmer Transportation Services, a Chicago-based trucking and freight delivery company, has signed a long-term lease to occupy 17,280 square feet at the newly-completed second phase of Park 355 in Woodridge, Ill. The lease with Wimmer is the first at the 180,480-square-foot warehouse facility located along Interstate 355 at 2143 Internationale Parkway.
Park 355 Phase 2 was developed by HSA Commercial in partnership with Denver-based Industrial Income Trust and features 30-foot clear heights, frontage on Interstate 355, an ESFR sprinkler system, 49 exterior truck docks, and 4 drive-in doors. The new 180,480-square-foot distribution center is divisible to 17,280-square-foot suites to accommodate smaller industrial tenants like Wimmer Transportation Services seeking immediate leasing opportunities in the Interstate 55 corridor.
“This project was developed precisely for tenants like Wimmer Transportation that have been struggling for years to find Class-A buildings that can accommodate their smaller space requirement in the I-55 corridor,” said Bob Smietana, vice chairman and CEO of HSA Commercial. “Our expectation is that we will continue to find similarly sized tenants as we execute our leasing strategy for the remaining space in the building.”
Timothy Thompson, executive vice president and managing director of the Industrial Brokerage division, HSA Commercial Real Estate, represented ownership in the lease transaction. Wimmer Transportation Services was represented by Josh Hearne, vice president with Cawley Chicago.
