116,000 SF distribution center planned for Bensenville

Chicago-based Dayton Street Partners will develop a 116,000-square-foot speculative distribution center in Bensenville, Illinois, on behalf of Black Creek Group, LLC. Construction is set to begin in June with an expected delivery of spring 2019.

The announcement follows the completion of Dayton Street’s recent two-parcel land assemblage of a 90,000-square-foot industrial building on 3.44 acres at 1055 Sesame Street and a 3.48-acre vacant land site at 491 Podlin Drive in Bensenville. Following demolition of an old outdated facility on the Sesame Street property, Dayton Street will break ground on the redevelopment on the combined acreage. The new state-of-the-art building will feature 32-foot clear height ceilings, 24 exterior dock doors and 137 parking spots.

A premier location near O’Hare International Airport’s southern cargo entrance, Dayton Street expects to draw interest from a variety of users in the freight forwarding and service industries and/or users seeking modern infill properties for last-mile distribution.

“The proximity to the airport is obviously terrific,” said Dayton Street founder Howard Wedren. “It’s an ideal site for those seeking a central location with immediate access to Chicago and the surrounding area.”
