Clear Height Acquires Industrial Service Facility Near O’Hare

Clear Height Properties has acquired an 18,800-square-foot industrial service facility located at 9211 Gage Avenue in Franklin Park, IL for an undisclosed sum. Located less than five miles from O’Hare International Airport, the property offers a low 30% building-to-land coverage ratio, fully gated and secured parking area for a fleet of field service vehicles, four drive-in doors and interior triple catch basins. 

“The opportunity to offer secured parking is critical to many users,” said Rick Nevarez, director of acquisitions, Clear Height Properties. “There is a supply shortage of like-kind industrial service facilities in the market.”  

Ryan Widerberg of eXp Realty was the sole broker in the sale transaction. Clear Height has hired Jason Lev and Jimmy Kowalczyk with CBRE to market the building as available.
