PREMIER Design + Build, LLC has completed construction of two state-of-the-art speculative warehouses on 21 acres of land at 804 E. Park Ave. in Libertyville, IL. Bridge Development Partners, LLC selected PREMIER for the project in 2015 and tenants can move into the industrial facilities effective immediately.
The new industrial development is located in Lake County, north of Chicago, in a healthy industrial area where companies are looking for modern and functionally efficient space, PREMIER says in a news release. Lake County is the third most populous county in Illinois and possesses a large and willing workforce that businesses can tap into by moving to this part of the state.
The Bridge Point 94 development is named for its proximity to the I-94 expressway, and also has easy access to IL routes 137 and 176. In addition to its valuable location to major interstates, it benefits from nearby Waukegan National and O’Hare International Airports.
“We are proud of the many facilities that we’ve built in Northern Illinois and this project is no exception. Bridge Point 94 is right in line with the quality and type of buildings we construct,” says PREMIER executive vice-president Brian Paul. “We are confident that these two state-of-the-art buildings will attract top businesses, create more jobs and stimulate the economy for Libertyville and its neighboring communities.”
Building 1 offers 185,670 sq. ft. to business tenants while Building 2 provides 220,542 sq. ft. Both Class A facilities feature 32’ clear-height warehouse spaces, 56 truck dock positions, an ESFR fire protection sprinkler system, 1,600 and 2,000 amp, 277/480 volt electrical service. To accommodate these soon-to-be busy warehouses, a concrete lot has been built with 536 parking stalls.
Mark Melone was the project manager and Johnathan Nelsen was field superintendent from PREMIER Design + Build, LLC. Cornerstone Architects, Ltd. provided architectural services and Pearson, Brown & Associates Inc. was the civil engineering firm. John Hauser and Michael Fonda of Avison Young are representing the building.
