Duke Launches Spec Development on Site of Vacant Woodridge Theatre

The Chicago office of Duke Realty has launched construction on a 370,973-square-foot speculative development in Woodridge, IL, on the site of a former AMC movie theatre that closed permanently last year. The planned facility at 10000 Woodward Ave. is located within minutes of Chicago’s airports, close to major thoroughfares and rail lines.

“Duke Realty’s strategy is to invest in infill development opportunities in submarkets where our clients can tap into a robust labor force while being conveniently located to its customers,” said Susan Bergdoll, SVP and regional leader at Duke. “What was a vacant movie theatre will soon be a modern logistics facility that employs hundreds of Illinois workers.” 

The planned facility will have 36’ clear height, 37 dock doors, four drive-in doors, 44 trailer spaces and 343 parking spaces. Completion is slated for January 2022. Cushman & Wakefield’s Jason West and Sean Henrick will handle leasing.
