DarwinPW/CORFAC Brokers Industrial Sale For Repurpose

DarwinPW Realty/CORFAC International Vice President Terry Lynch recently represented JLO Metal Products in its disposition of a 93,911-square-foot building at 5841 W. Dickens Avenue in Chicago to Elite Auto Corporation. The former manufacturing facility will be repurposed into a car sales business.

“It’s great to see a growing business expand its presence in Chicago by repurposing a former manufacturing facility,” Lynch says. The building is a World War II-era manufacturing facility with heavy power and bus ducts throughout its previous uses. Zoned for industrial use, 5841 W. Dickens has four docks and one drive-in door. It has off-street parking for the new owner’s employees and customers.

Elite Auto Corporation is expanding from its successful location in Logan Square. The Galewood neighborhood offers access to customers on the west side and in the near west suburbs. Avison Young’s Steve Kohn represented the buyer.

Connect Industrial Midwest 2024 will take place on March 5, 2024, at Joe’s Live in Rosemont, Illinois. Click here for more information and to register.
