CushWake Arranges 694K-SF LTD Renewal

Cushman & Wakefield represented LTD Commodities on a 10-year renewal of its 694,367-square-foot distribution facility at 1000 Bilter Rd. in Aurora, IL. Acquired by e-commerce giant Amerimark Holdings in December 2017, LTD Commodities is regarded as one of the country’s leading catalog and online merchandisers.

Jason West, vice chair, and Chris Cummins, executive director of Cushman & Wakefield represented LTD Commodities. Landlord Liberty Property Trust was represented in-house by senior director Matt Neumann.

“The long-term lease extension resulted from a mutually-beneficial relationship between the landlord and LTD Commodities at this key distribution facility, which is the ideal location to accommodate their employees and the delivery of product,” said West.

He added, “The facility works well for their current needs, and the landlord’s willingness to upgrade the existing infrastructure of the warehouse will help to address any changing needs in the future.”
