Chicago – Transwestern Investment Group (TIG®) announces it has sold the Michelin Super Regional Distribution Center in Wilmington, Illinois, to Silver Creek Development. A build-to-suit for Michelin, the 2 million-square-foot project sits within Elion Logistics Park 55, a 2,500-acre rail-served industrial park located at the intersection of Interstate 55 and Lorenzo Road in Will County.
Elion Logistics Park 55’s strategic location outside of Chicago provides access to 30% of the total U.S. population within a one-day drive. Additionally, it is near both BNSF Logistics Park Chicago and Union Pacific intermodal facilities in Elwood and Joliet, Illinois, respectively.
“TIG acquired this investment due to its strategic location and the durable income that is generated from the Michelin lease,” said Chris Sterling, Vice President at TIG. “During TIG’s ownership, Michelin expanded by more than 300,000 square feet and extended its lease term, further validating its commitment to this project. Having achieved our client’s investment objectives, we elected to have Eastdil market this asset for disposition.”
The project’s desirable location coupled with a long-term lease to Michelin generated strong interest from the investment community for the asset. Ultimately, TIG selected Silver Creek as the buyer.
Nick Murphy and Josh McArtor of Eastdil Secured represented TIG in the transaction.
