Speculative Project in I-88 Corridor Slated for Late 2022 Completion

September 14, 2021

CHICAGO  A joint venture of PCCP, LLC and Transwestern Development Company (TDC®) has announced plans to develop a speculative 173,400-square-foot industrial facility at 950 Ice Cream Drive in North Aurora, Illinois, which is part of the active I-88 Corridor. Construction will begin in October 2021 and is expected to be complete in second quarter 2022.

“Demand for modern industrial space continues to surge and this facility will suit the needs of companies seeking quality warehouse space in a submarket that offers both accessibility and a skilled workforce,” said Ted Staszak, Vice President of Development at TDC.

Situated on a nine-acre parcel, the project is located in the heart of the Far West Suburban submarket adjacent to Interstate 88 and approximately 40 miles west of the Chicago CBD. The Class A building will feature 36-foot clear height, 42 trailer parking stalls, and abundant car parking and exterior docks.

“The I-88 Corridor is one of the most steady, resilient industrial submarkets in Chicago and PCCP is pleased to be Transwestern’s partner on a project that has been thoughtfully designed to appeal to the widest segment of the submarket’s tenant base,” said Tina Ramos, Senior Vice President at PCCP.

The I-88 Corridor industrial vacancy rate is 5.1% as of second quarter 2021, according to Transwestern research. Anchored by the dense population base in the western suburbs, the submarket is home to a diverse array of industrial users spanning distribution and light manufacturing and representing a combination of local, regional and national credit tenants.

At present, Transwestern Development Company has 34 industrial projects totaling 18.4 million square feet under construction or in pre-development planning stages nationwide, including more than 8.95 million square feet in the Midwest since 2012.
