Brennan Developing Build-to-Suit for Zippy Shell 

Brennan Investment Group will develop a 118,800-square-foot build-to-suit warehouse facility for Zippy Shell Incorporated in Bartlett, IL. The tenant is a portable storage and moving company that delivers storage containers directly to the end user’s home or business.    

“With assistance from Jack Brennan at CBRE, we acquired a ‘ready-to-go’ 7.3-acre industrial parcel for Zippy Shell in Blue Heron Business Park,” said Tod Greenwood, executive director of build-to-suit development and managing principal at Brennan. “The site is ideally located and will allow Zippy to serve both the north and western suburbs of Chicago.” 

Added Kevin Brennan, managing principal of Brennan’s Midwest region, “We used the power of Brennan’s platform to serve Zippy Shell. Tod’s team worked with Zippy to understand their needs, and Brennan’s Chicago team located the site and will manage the construction of the facility.”
