Avison Young Markets Former Rail Car Facility
Avison Young is marketing a two-building, 810,555-square-foot industrial campus in Rochelle, IL. Until last month, the campus’ owner, Nippon Sharyo Manufacturing LLC, used the 57-acre facility to manufacture rail cars.
“This highly-specialized campus environment provides a unique opportunity for a railcar or other heavy manufacturing company to move in and quickly begin production using the existing infrastructure,” said Avison Young’s Michael Fonda. “There are few sites of this size and caliber in the U.S. that can offer such a plug-and-play opportunity, which would dramatically shorten time to market and reduce up-front operational expenditures.”
Fonda, along with his colleagues Chris Lydon and Hugh Williams,is representing Nippon Sharyo. The Rosemont, IL-based trio are marketing the campus, which was built in 2012 to produce as many as 120 rail cars per month, as a turnkey facility in partnership with Cincinnati Industrial Auctioneers.
