Chicago-based HSA Commercial Real Estate announced that HARIBO of America, Inc., has executed a 157,656-square-foot, full-building lease at HSA Commercial’s Bristol Highlands Commerce Center, a 68-acre industrial park in Bristol, Wisconsin, near Interstate 94 and the Wisconsin-Illinois border.
The deal means the first phase of Bristol Highlands Commerce Center, which was completed in 2020 and includes a larger 472,176-square-foot warehouse, is now fully leased.
HARIBO, the world’s leading manufacturer of gummi products, plans to occupy the space in first-quarter 2022, using it for distribution of finished product. Located at 9655 136th Ave., the facility will complement HARIBO’s first-ever North American production plant, which is currently under construction just 2 miles away in Pleasant Prairie.
HSA Commercial broke ground on a third speculative warehouse at Bristol Highlands Commerce Center this summer. Located at 9403 136th Ave., the 447,000-square-foot distribution center is scheduled for completion in early 2022 and features 36-foot clear heights, 73 truck docks and ample parking for employees.
Earlier this year, Visual Pak, a Waukegan, Illinois-based firm providing contract packaging and manufacturing solutions for a variety of well-known food, personal care, automotive and healthcare brands, moved into the 472,176-square-foot warehouse that, together with the HARIBO building, comprises phase one.
Bristol Highlands Commerce Center features a campus-like design that includes generous setbacks, sizable walking paths, an upgraded detention pond, enhanced landscaping and several signage features.
