Colliers’ Devine and Disse Arrange Warehouse Sale to Goldman Sachs
Colliers Chicago’s Jeff Devine and Steve Disse represented CA Ventures in the sale of 500 E. Devon Ave. in Elk Grove, IL to a fund managed by Goldman Sachs for an undisclosed price.
Completed in 2020, 500 E. Devon Ave. is a 146,029-square-foot distribution center with 32’ clear ceiling height and generous loading accommodations. The multi-tenant, small bay facility provides immediate access to the U.S. Interstate network and O’Hare International Airport.
The property was 71% leased to three tenants at closing. Colliers Chicago will continue representing the new owner on the remaining 42,000 square feet.
“The building was built to serve the most active tenant size in Chicago’s deepest and tightest industrial submarket,” said Devine. “The asset has experienced strong leasing momentum to date, and we believe the property will continue to benefit from its mission-critical location against a backdrop of unparalleled tenant demand.”
