Cold Summit Launches Spec Development in Bedford Park

Cold Summit Development has launched Cold Summit Chicago I, a new multi-tenant speculative cold storage project in the southwest suburb of Bedford Park, IL. The project features a 213,600-square-foot development, including 7,000 square feet of office and fully convertible temperature-controlled suites.  

Sitework and construction have commenced with forecasted delivery by August 2022. The project follows developments by Cold Summit in Dallas and Phoenix. 

The project is located at 5020 W. 73rd St. in Bedford Park. The submarket is an industrial hub less than 15 miles from downtown Chicago and three miles from Midway Airport, with the project site adjacent to the CSX intermodal terminal, the largest in the CSX network. 

“Chicago is a premier market for industrial real estate, serving last-mile distribution to the third-largest metro population in the U.S. as well as filling its role as a national intermodal logistics hub,” said Cold Summit COO Alex Langerman.
