Colliers Chicago’s Ned Frank represented Global Logistical Connections in its 100,000-square-foot lease at Route 6 Business Center, 23647 W. Eames St. in Channahon, IL. The lease represents a significant expansion from the tenant’s current location at 60 Rawls Rd. in Des Plaines, IL, where it occupies 17,000 square feet.
Global Logistical Connections cited growth and demand in the e-commerce business as drivers for the move. Site selection came down to the state-of-the-art features of the property, along with abundant trailer parking, access to the U.S. Interstate system, and proximity to the nearby BNSF intermodal. The new space also allows for future growth.
Colliers’ David Bercu, Charles Canale and Kataline Villalpando represented Clarion, owners of Route 6 Business Center, in the transaction. The property is a newly constructed, 442,000-square-foot, Class A, cross-dock warehouse facility.
