CushWake Represents Industrial Park at Long-Vacant Racetrack

Cushman & Wakefield is representing the new Kenosha Commerce Center (KCC) to be located on the former site of the Dairyland Greyhound Dog Track in Kenosha, WI. The site, an industrial business park, will deliver in early 2020, and can accommodate industrial buildings comprising up to 1.8 million square feet.

“The location of KCC is absolutely unparalleled,” said Cushman & Wakefield’s Brett Kroner. “Future occupants will have access to more than 150 intermodal facilities in the surrounding area, and will also be within easy reach of 50% of the U.S. population within a day’s truck delivery, and 75% of the populace within two day’s truck delivery.”

Kroner and his colleagues, Keith Puritz and Eric Fischer, are representing KCC’s ownership. Dakota Intertek Corp. is the demolition subcontractor for the kennel and grandstand areas of the former greyhound racing park, which has been vacant since 2009.
