Conor Launches BTS for E-Commerce Giant

Conor Commercial Real Estate has launched development of a build-to-suit distribution facility for one of the world’s largest e-commerce retailers. Published reports say the 162,000-square-foot facility at 315 S. Hicks Road in Palatine, IL will be built for Amazon.

“The site plan for this project is unique for an industrial development. It is designed to allow for efficient loading and high throughput of 600 sprinter vans for last mile residential delivery,” said Brian Quigley, EVP at Conor.

“Between the demographics of the Palatine area, the size and design of the development, and the easy access to Route 53 and Northwest Highway, we are confident this facility will be an essential part of our customer’s business long term,” he added.

An early October 2020 completion is expected. McShane Construction Company is serving as the general contractor. The architect for the building is Ware Malcomb.
