Krusinski Construction Company held a ceremonial groundbreaking to mark the beginning of ground-up construction of a 19,000-square-foot Cassidy Best-One Tire & Service automotive center within the Rock Creek Logistics Center in Joliet. Ketone Partners is the developer of the project, located at 3100 Channahon Road.
This represents the first location for the recently formed alliance between Cassidy Tire and Best-One Tire & Service. The facility will provide truck and automotive tire work, and general vehicle maintenance. Cassidy Best-One Tire & Service anticipates opening this location in early 2022.
The building at 3100 Channahon is being constructed on an approximately three-acre site within the logistics center that is owned by Ketone. The new automotive center, made of precast material, will be equipped with 20 drive-in doors, 10 service bays and 1,000 square feet of office space. The site will include nine parking stalls and seven trailer parking stalls.
“Krusinski Construction is pleased to be part of this project, which signals the beginning of a great new venture and opportunity for Cassidy Best-One Tire & Service while at the same time advancing the progress of Ketone’s Rock Creek Logistics Center,” said Ryan Lehman, Project Manager, Krusinski Construction Company.
In addition to the project team members, Will County Center for Economic Development members and public officials from the City of Joliet were in attendance, including Mayor, Bob O’Dekirk.
Rock Creek Logistics Center is a 263-acre business and logistics center that offers direct access to Interstate 80 via Houbolt Road and Interstate 55 via Route 6. The center is adjacent to the future Houbolt Road extension and Des Plaines River Bridge. Adjacent to the building now under construction for Cassidy Best-One is a travel plaza being planned by Ketone. Given the level of truck and automotive traffic that goes through Joliet, this location represents a great growth opportunity for Cassidy Best-One Tire and Service.
The Krusinski Construction team includes Ryan Lehman, Project Manager; Michael Metz, Project Executive; Josh Peterson, Project Engineer; Ed Zygowicz, Senior Project Superintendent; and Erin Anderson, Project Coordinator. In addition to Krusinski Construction and Ketone Partners, the project team includes Cornerstone Architects, architect, and Jacob & Hefner Associates, civil engineer.
