Located off of Interstate-94, the site offers access to a major transit corridor linking Milwaukee and Chicago, as well as prime freeway visibility. Additionally, the building will feature 32-foot clear height ceilings, 16 dock doors and three drive-in doors, parking stalls for 151 vehicles and an ESFR sprinkler system. The development can accommodate single or multi-tenant occupancy. Construction is slated for completion in the summer of 2016.

The building will be owned by a joint venture partnership between Opus Development Company, L.L.C. and Founders Properties, L.L.C. Opus Development Company, L.L.C. will be the developer. Opus Design Build, L.L.C. will be the design-builder and Opus AE Group, L.L.C. will be the architect and structural engineer of record.
