Chicago general contractor Summit Design + Build has recently began construction on a new 156,000 sq. ft. speculative warehouse and distribution building at 2420 S. Wood St. in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood, another area in the city seeing the impact of rapid industrial growth.
“Our team has been handling a lot of industrial work as of late, both ground-up speculative and renovation,” said senior project manager Brian Sundermann. “It is a sign of how strong the industrial market is right now.”
The contractor will be handling the new construction of the precast and steel warehouse as well as associated site work. The development, referred to as Pilsen Park Chicago, comes from Chicago-based Clarius Partners and Wanxiang America Real Estate Group and is being marketed by Mark Nelson and Doug Hayes of NelsonHill as prospective dry or freezer/cooler food processing and storage space.
Ware Malcomb is providing architectural services for the project.
