Cushman & Wakefield represented tenant Weld-Cote as well as owner Molto Properties in a 48,487-square-foot, long-term lease at Molto’s 7720 N. Lehigh Avenue development in Niles, Illinois. Cushman & Wakefield executive directors Brett Kroner and Keith Puritz, managing director Eric Fischer and director Steve Stone were the sole brokers in the transaction.
“This property is an ideal location for Weld-Cote to establish operations in Chicago and across Illinois,” said Kroner. “Access to downtown Chicago, O’Hare and major thoroughfares were some of the key reasons for choosing this property”.
Cushman & Wakefield will continue to market the remaining 87,163 square feet of 32-foot clear new construction, including 20 exterior docks (expandable).
