CenterPoint Properties is nearing the half way milestone to full build-out at the CenterPoint Intermodal Center – Joliet due to several recently completed development projects. Three new projects totaling more than 74 acres have been completed in the park, including a built-to-suit, a container yard and a warehouse facility.
Construction is complete and an August turnover to Neovia Logistics Services, LLC was accomplished for the 406,000 SF built-to-suit facility. The cross-loaded distribution facility features approximately 11,000 SF of office space, a 32′ clear height, 106 dock doors and 300 trailer stalls. The 300′ building depth reduces dock-to-dock travel time, providing a throughput advantage for clients. Neovia will import/export approximately 30,000 containers per year.
This project adds a functional, high-velocity building into the park, which is well suited for an inland port location. Bridge Terminal Transport (BTT) is now operational at their new 4-acre container yard located directly adjacent to the Union Pacific Intermodal Yard off the private road corridor. The container yard covers a total of 50 acres; approximately 45 acres are available and divisible for additional tenants’ container/equipment storage needs.
CenterPoint has also completed construction on a new 485,476 SF divisible speculative facility at CIC – Joliet. The building is in close proximity to both the Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Intermodal Yards, with features including 32′ clear height, 56 docks, 2 drive-in doors, and 222 car and 133 trailer-parking positions on campus.
