Conor Will Add 265k SF of Industrial to Central DuPage

Conor Commercial Real Estate and Kensington Realty Advisors have broken ground on North Avenue Commerce Center, a Class A industrial building that will be situated on 17.05 acres in Winfield, IL, within the Central DuPage submarket. The 265,550-square-foot precast facility is divisible to 60,000 square feet.

“The 75-million-square-foot DuPage submarket has a 4.4% vacancy rate, which ranks among the lowest in Chicago’s 1.3-billion-square-foot industrial market,” said Conor Commercial’s Brian Quigley. “Not only does the facility offer a convenient location, but also low DuPage County real estate taxes, extra trailer storage and a high-profile façade on North Avenue. With all of these factors, we are confident that the project will be a success.”

McShane Construction Company is serving as general contractor, and Ware Malcomb provided the architectural services for North Avenue Commerce Center. It’s slated for completion in the fourth quarter of 2018.
