Conor Commercial Real Estate Announces Development of 70-Acre Fountain Square Commerce Center in Bolingbrook, Illinois

September 9, 2015

David J. Friedman, President of Conor Commercial Real Estate, a member of The McShane Companies, is pleased to announce the launch of Fountain Square Commerce Center – a new 70-acre, Class A multi-building industrial business park. Located within the premier I-55 corridor at Remington Boulevard and South Schmidt Road in Bolingbrook, Illinois, the well-positioned development offers easy access to the full I-55 interchange at I-55 and Route 53 and is in close proximity to the I-355 interchange. Construction is currently underway with delivery scheduled for Summer 2016.

With speculative and build-to-suit opportunities for-sale or lease available, Fountain Square Commerce Center is the ideal location for industrial and distribution users seeking enhanced efficiencies and contemporary space.  Strategically located within the epicenter of commerce, the park provides optimal convenience to the City of Chicago, the Midwest Region and the national market and is readily accessible from O’Hare International Airport, Midway Airport and DuPage County Airport.   Numerous advantages are also offered by the business-friendly community of Bolingbrook including abundant retail and dining options, an affordable labor force, low real estate taxes and economic incentives.   

Fountain Square Commerce Center will be comprised of four Class A speculative buildings ranging in size from 109,088 to 320,532 square feet.   Each facility can support single- or multi-tenant environments with space available from 40,000 square feet. Industrial operations will be enhanced by ample on-site vehicle and truck parking, substantial dock door positions, efficient truck maneuverability, 32′ clear height, ESFR sprinkler systems and office space to-suit.  The business park also features a 12-acre build-to-suit site that can accommodate up to 216,000 square feet of fully customized building requirements.

As part of the development, Fountain Square Commerce Center will feature a two-acre public park located at the southeast corner of the parcel. Landscaped walking paths, seating areas and a central decorative fountain will be available for tenants and community residents to enjoy. Three elegant ponds will also be incorporated throughout the site providing additional visual interest to the contemporary business park.

“The I-55 corridor continues to be a hub for distribution companies due to its superior access to the interstate highway system,” remarked David J. Friedman.  “Combined with the pro-business approach of the Village of Bolingbrook and the area’s highly skilled and available workforce, we are confident that we can achieve our development goals with the delivery of this Class A industrial park within the community of Bolingbrook.”

McShane Construction Company and Ware Malcomb comprise the design/build team for the development.  Brian Carroll and Jim Cummings of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank are serving as exclusive marketing agents.  For additional information about Fountain Square Commerce Center, kindly contact Carroll (bcarroll@ngkf.com) or Cummings (jcummings@ngkf.com) at 773.957.1400.
