Colliers Arranges 551K-SF Sublease of DuPage Warehouse

In one of the Chicago area’s largest industrial lease transactions year-to-date, Colliers International Chicago’s Christopher Volkert and Brian Kling represented Follett Corporation in a three-year, 551,200-square-foot, full building sublease to Wholesale Interiors at 2805 Duke Pkwy. in Aurora, IL.

“Demand remains consistent in the I-88 Corridor,” said Volkert. “Users continue to be drawn to DuPage County and the modern warehouse product available in the area.”

Wholesale Interiors is a furniture supplier and distributor of commercial furniture, hotel furniture, and restaurant furniture. The company will expand its operations from Bensenville, IL.

Owned by Duke Realty, 2805 Duke Pkwy. is cross-docked with 32-foot clear, 74 dock doors, four grade-level drive-in doors, 73 trailer parking positions, and 153 car parking spaces. In addition, it features 25,000 square feet in office space. The facility offers immediate access to four-way interchanges along I-88 at Eola Road and Route 59.
