PREMIER Design + Build Group has been selected to construct a new industrial warehouse facility on behalf of project developer Bridge Development Partners LLC. The new facility is designed to accommodate air and land freight forwarders and distributors in the industrial district of Elk Grove Village.
Construction is scheduled to begin April 2013 at 2475 Touhy Ave. in Elk Grove Village. The existing 185,000-square-foot metal panel structure currently on site will be demolished and cleared for the new construction of a multi-tenant warehouse distribution facility.
The new warehouse will span 124,028 square feet and include 35 dock positions to provide a dock ratio of just over 1 per 3,500 square feet in order to accommodate airfreight users. An early suppression fast response fire sprinkler system will be installed for optimal protection within the 32-foot clear warehouse space. The on-site relocation of an existing cell tower will also take place.
The façade of the new facility will be comprised of precast and glass curtain walls. A new parking lot will be put in place with 154 parking spaces. When the project is complete, the new warehouse will be capable of housing up to four tenants.
“We are excited about the opportunity to provide a class A product suited for small-sized forwarders and distributors in the 25,000- to 50,000-square-foot range,” said Tony Pricco of Bridge Development Partners LLC. “We feel we are filling a void in the market for this user size that still necessitates all the amenities of a new state-of-the-art facility.”
The anticipated completion date of the project is said to be in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Mark Melone of PREMIER Design + Build, LLC is the project manager overseeing the development and Scott Lebak is the project superintendent. Cornerstone Architects Ltd. is delivering architectural services and Spaceco Inc. is the civil engineer. Brian Carroll, Ryan Kehoe and Thomas Gath of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank are brokering the facility.
