PREMIER is ramping up to begin another industrial project in McCook, Illinois after recently completing an institutional grade build-to-suit in the same development. Bridge Development Partners, LLC and Akard Street Partners, L.P. are developing this 14 acres landsite for the new facility and selected PREMIER to manage the design + build process. Located at 8401 West 47th Street, prospective tenants of the facility will benefit from close proximity to I-55 and I-294.
The future home to distributors, manufacturers and freight forwarders is designed to house up to four tenants. Upon completion, the new facility will contain 34 exterior truck docks and four drive in doors. Building envelope materials will include insulated load-bearing precast wall panels, a 45-mil fully ballasted EPDM roofing system and glass and glazing at the office entryway. Users will have maximum storage volume with a 32′ clear height, and fire protection via ESFR (Early Suppression, Fast Response) sprinkler system.
A new asphalt parking lot will be installed with 11 trailer and 219 car stalls. Also incorporated into the design is a new detention basin for stormwater management. Anticipated completion of the project is first quarter of 2015.
Jeremy Jelonek with PREMIER is the project manager and Scott Lebak is field superintendent. Cornerstone Architects are delivering architectural services. Manhard Consulting, Ltd. is the civil engineer. The project is being financed by The PrivateBank and Associated Bank and Vern Schultz and Tom Condon of Colliers International are the brokers for the facility.
