(Chicago, IL ‒ June 11, 2018) The Chicago office of Duke Realty Corporation (NYSE: DRE), the nation’s leading pure-play, domestic-only, industrial property REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust), has begun construction of a 183,296-square-foot bulk warehouse in Glendale Heights in the Central DuPage submarket. The building, which is being developed on a speculative basis, is located at the center of the Chicago metropolitan area at 990 North Avenue (Route 64) just minutes from I-355.
“Leasing activity in the Central DuPage submarket has been extremely strong, due to its proximity to downtown Chicago and surrounding populous neighborhoods, especially by companies looking for last-mile distribution sites. However availability is very limited with no other active speculative development underway in the market, making it nearly impossible for customers to find more than 90,000 square feet of ready-to-move-into space,” said Susan Bergdoll, Vice President of Leasing and Development for Duke Realty in Chicago. “With this new speculative building, Duke Realty will be well-positioned to offer customers with immediate needs first-class space with excellent freeway access in this high-demand submarket”
Duke Realty’s new building in Glendale Heights is slated for delivery in November 2018. The building, which is being built on a recently acquired 13.4-acre parcel, will feature 32′ clear height, 18 dock doors, two drive-in doors and LED lighting. Surrounding the building will be 152 automobile parking spaces and 12 trailer staging spots. Duke Realty owns five other buildings totaling 1,372,054 square feet in the Central DuPage submarket, all of which are 100 percent leased
