Cawley Chicago Client Quadruples Space in Shorewood Lease

Cawley Chicago principal Joshua Hearne, SIOR helped facilitate client Neo Zone Inc.’s execution of a long-term lease at Shorewood’s Heartland Corporate Center, a submarket of Joliet, IL.  

Hearne previously placed his client in a 50,000-square-foot facility and the company has since grown to more than 200,000 square feet of industrial space. The building located at 21450 Frontage Rd. in Shorewood, IL is owned by Clarion Partners.  

“I was very pleased with Clarion Partners response time and creativity to structure the deal for my client,” says Hearne. Neo Zone Inc, a freight shipping company, will take occupancy early this month.
