HSA to develop multi-phase business park on Wisconsin Illinois,ph01

HSA Commercial Real Estate recently acquired a 68-acre land parcel at Wilmot Road and 136th Avenue in Bristol, Wisconsin, near I-94 and the Wisconsin-Illinois border.

HSA Commercial has already received approval to develop a large-scale, multi-phase business park on the parcel consisting of three buildings totaling more than 1 million square feet. The development team plans to deliver the first two speculative buildings later this year — a rear-load 157,300-square-foot warehouse building with 31 truck docks and a cross-docked 471,950-square-foot distribution center with 72 truck docks.

Development of the business park, known as the Bristol Highlands Commerce Center, is being spearheaded by Tim Thompson, HSA Commercial’s executive vice president and managing director of industrial brokerage. Its campus design includes generous setbacks, sizeable walking paths, an upgraded detention pond, enhanced landscaping and common monument signage.

Each of the three buildings at Bristol Highlands Commerce Center will feature clear heights ranging from 32 to 36 feet, with generous trailer and employee parking. In addition to the two buildings being constructed as part of the project’s first phase, there will be a 25-acre parcel remaining that can accommodate up to a 450,000-square-foot building, to be developed on spec or as a build-to-suit.

Riverwoods, Illinois-based Partners in Design Architects will be responsible for the project design, and Brookfield, Wisconsin-based Pinnacle Engineering is handling the civil engineering. Itasca, Illinois-based Premier Design + Build will serve as the project’s general contractor.
