Conor Commercial Real Estate has completed a 215,550-square-foot lease with one of the world’s largest e-commerce retailers at North Avenue Commerce Center in Winfield, IL. This is the third Chicago-area building the tenant has leased from Conor over the past year, and it will serve as last-mile warehouse and distribution space.
“The high profile location on North Avenue generated significant user interest right out of the gate,” said Brian Quigley, EVP at Conor. “Not only does the facility offer a convenient location, but also low DuPage County real estate taxes, extra trailer storage and a high image façade.
“The e-commerce company’s presence will have a positive impact on Winfield and will employ 150 full-time associates and many more independent flex-time drivers,” he continued.
Conor was represented in the lease transaction by NAI Hiffman’s David Haigh and John Cash. The tenant was represented by Jason West of Cushman and Wakefield.
