Bridge Industrial plans to build two speculative warehouses in Romeoville, IL, within the low-vacancy I-55 corridor

Bridge Industrial Plans to Build in Low-Vacancy I-55 Corridor 

Bridge Industrial acquired a 66.93-acre parcel of land in the I-55 corridor in Romeoville, IL. The future site, Bridge Point Romeoville, will consist of two Class A buildings totaling 660,280 square feet.  

Bridge acquired the vacant farmland site from a private seller and plans to immediately begin the grading and earthwork necessary to prepare it for development of two state-of-the-art industrial facilities. Bridge Point Romeoville is expected to be delivered in the third quarter of 2023.  

“The I-55 Corridor submarket has record low vacancy rates and has seen continued strong demand for big-box facilities,” said Jon Pozerycki, partner, Chicago region at Bridge. “These planned state-of-the-art facilities are ideal for a range of modern tenants, and we look forward to attracting top-tier logistics and distribution tenants to the project.”  

NAI Hiffman’s Adam Roth, David Haigh and Packy Doyle will serve as leasing agents for the development.
