Dermody Properties Plans 198-Acre WI Logistics Campus

Dermody Properties acquired the former We Energies power plant in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, along with the site’s planned redevelopment as LogistiCenter at Pleasant Prairie. The planned 198-acre campus will accommodate build-to-suit opportunities in three state-of-the-art logistics buildings.

Mass grading is underway, with building pads ready for vertical construction by the fourth quarter of 2023. The park is conceptually approved to accommodate three buildings totaling 2.4 million square feet with the flexibility to be modified or consolidated.

LogistiCenter at Pleasant Prairie has access to abundant power and the site benefits from large quantities of freshwater service from Lake Michigan through the Village of Pleasant Prairie. In April, Microsoft gained approval to build a $1B data center in nearby Racine.

“LogistiCenter at Pleasant Prairie is set apart from other development opportunities in the Midwest, adding a great deal of value for industrial uses beyond traditional warehousing,” said Neal Driscoll, Midwest region partner at Dermody Properties.
