Brennan Investment Group, the industrial developer behind the $1 billion Elk Grove Technology Park, has partnered with Comcast Business to bring its advanced fiber network to the technological innovation and business development hub now under construction in Chicago’s northwest suburbs near O’Hare International Airport.

Comcast Business will be the first connectivity provider on site and will offer a broad range of secure, reliable and scalable data, voice and video solutions to tenants, including internet and ethernet, cloud solutions, business phone and TV services, as well as its Comcast Business SmartOffice video monitoring system. Through these services, tenants will have access to fast internet speeds, the ability to build custom network infrastructures and customized solutions to stay connected.

“Thanks to our partnership with Comcast Business, our tenants will have a state-of-the-art network and advanced technology solutions available when they move in,” said Jack Brennan, first vice president for CBRE, the park’s exclusive representative. “These services will help us attract a new wave of advanced manufacturing companies to the park.”

Located at 955 E. Higgins Road in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, the technology-forward business park is designed to accommodate digital manufacturing, robotics and data center companies and recently landed its first tenant, an aerospace manufacturer. Completion of the last building in phase one of the park is targeted for later this summer.

“Manufacturing has played a key role in the Chicago area’s economy for more than two hundred years and was largely responsible for putting the region on the global map. The Elk Grove Technology Park will be transformational, because it will usher in new era of technology-based manufacturing that will help drive our economy forward,” said Sean McCarthy, Comcast’s regional vice president of business development and strategic initiatives. “Our portfolio of business solutions will align with the needs of companies in the park, helping to optimize their performance, reduce the complexity of day-to-day tasks and accelerate their growth.”
