Morgan / Harbour Construction has completed the new ground-up 130,000 square foot, four-story office build-to-suit for the Hub Group (NASDAQ: HUBG) at 2000 Clearwater Drive in Oak Brook, Illinois. The build-to-suit office project represents the first new office building in Oak Brook since 2000.
A leading asset-light freight transportation management company providing comprehensive intermodal, truck brokerage and logistics services, Hub Group relocated its headquarters and nearly 500 employees from its previous locations in Illinois. The new facility sits on a 17-acre site located in the I-88 Tech Corridor and features underground parking and has the capacity for an additional 200 employees. The site also features natural habitat landscaping, ponds and walking trails.
Upon demolition of an existing building and site preparation, Morgan / Harbour constructed the new building which features open work areas, semi-private offices, executive offices and many conference rooms throughout the building. The firm also incorporated freight containers within the space to serve as informal meeting spaces. With additional features including high-efficiency HVAC, energy efficient lighting controls and storm water harvesting, the property achieved LEED Gold status and has recently been nominated as the Build-to-Suit of the Year by the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s Commercial Real Estate Awards Executive Committee.
