Ryan Cos. to Build Spec Industrial at Pullman Crossings

Ryan Companies US will develop and build a 400,000-square-foot speculative industrial project in the South Side’s Pullman neighborhood as part of the master-planned Pullman Crossings business park.

Pullman Crossings is a component of Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives’ Pullman Park, the mixed-use redevelopment of a 180-acre site formerly occupied by a Ryerson Steel plant.

“There is increased demand for urban industrial space with toll-free access, an active workforce, and flexible configurations,” said Ryan’s Curt Pascoe. “The new building will provide all the standards of a suburban business park in an urban location.”

Construction on the spec building is slated to begin in the spring. The property will be marketed by Avison Young’s Todd Heine and Brendan Kelly.

Pullman Crossings is also located in a Qualified Opportunity Zone. Once Ryan’s spec project is completed, there will be 30 acres remaining for further development.
