Dayton Street Partners Signs GSA to Full-Building Lease 

Chicago-based Dayton Street Partners (DSP) has signed the GSA/U.S. Justice Department to a new, 55,000-square-foot lease at its industrial property at 2500 York Rd. in Elk Grove Village, IL.  GSA will occupy 100% of the asset. 

“The supply of highly functional industrial properties in close proximity to the airport remains incredibly low,” said Howard Wedren, DSP founder and managing partner. “This scarce supply continues to drive an insatiable demand for these types of buildings.” 

The 55,356-square-foot warehouse sits on 3.3 acres and features two interior docks, three drive-on doors and parking for 110 cars. Ceiling height ranges from 24’ to 38.6’. One of only a few crane-served properties in the O’Hare submarket, it has two five-ton and two two-ton cranes.  It is located at the intersection of York and Elmhurst Roads, directly across the street from O’Hare International Airport.  

DSP acquired the building in January 2020.
