Transwestern Investment Group Sells 2M-SF Michelin Build-to-Suit
Transwestern Investment Group (TIG) has sold the Michelin Super Regional Distribution Center in Wilmington, IL to Silver Creek Development. A build-to-suit for Michelin, the two-million-square-foot project sits within Elion Logistics Park 55, a 2,500-acre rail-served industrial park in Will County.
“TIG acquired this investment due to its strategic location and the durable income that is generated from the Michelin lease,” said Chris Sterling, VP at TIG. “During TIG’s ownership, Michelin expanded by more than 300,000 square feet and extended its lease term, further validating its commitment to this project. Having achieved our client’s investment objectives, we elected to have Eastdil market this asset for disposition.”
The project’s location, coupled with a long-term lease to Michelin, generated strong interest from the investment community for the asset. Ultimately, TIG selected Silver Creek as the buyer.
Nick Murphy and Josh McArtor of Eastdil Secured represented TIG in the sale.
