JRW Bringing Spec Industrial to Vernon Hills

Premier Design + Build Group broke ground on a speculative industrial building in northwest suburban Vernon Hills, IL for developer JRW Property Holdings LLC. This design/build assignment, known as 130 Lakeview Pkwy., involves creating a 51,950-square-foot facility on a 5.67-acre site.   

The 32’ clear height building will accommodate one or two tenants. Constructed primarily of precast concrete wall panels, the facility will have eight dock positions, two drive-in doors, and 86 parking spaces. It will feature two exterior entrances accented with glass and faux wood siding.  

Dale Carter is PREMIER’s project manager on the assignment, working with project superintendent Zach Gadomski, and Midwest market leader. The project is targeted for completion in November. 

PREMIER is working with Cornerstone for architectural design services, Swift Structural for structural engineering, and Connelly Electric for electrical engineering. The broker for the property is Cushman & Wakefield.
