Logistics Firm Breaks Ground on Elgin Headquarters
GoldCoast Logistics Group (GCLG), represented by broker NAI Hiffman, joined with the Elgin Development Group, Elgin Chamber of Commerce, Elgin City Council and GCLG project partners last week for a socially distanced groundbreaking for GCLG’s $15-million, 61,888-square-foot headquarters at 1425 Madeline Lane in Elgin, Ill., about 35 miles northwest of Chicago. The facility will include a 38,000-square-foot warehouse and 23,000-square-foot office with driver dormitories.
“The growth of e-commerce because of changing consumer buying habits has benefited not only e-commerce giants like Amazon, but also the many companies that support them, including logistics/trucking companies like GoldCoast,” said NAI Hiffman’s Kelly Disser.
The 38,000-square-foot warehouse will include 30’ clear heights, multiple drivers’ bays and space for drivers to make repairs on their trucks. The site also will have parking for about 40 trucks and cars. Construction is expected to be completed in December.
