Conor Commercial Real Estate, a member of The McShane Companies, is pleased to announce the development of the 145,200-square-foot build-to-suit on behalf of AMS Mechanical Systems, Inc. The new facility represents the latest development at the highly-successful Union Pointe industrial business park located at the northeast quadrant of I-355 and I-55 in south suburban Woodridge, Illinois.
AMS is a full-service mechanical contracting firm serving the chemical, food, process, manufacturing and power industries for over 50 years. The company will relocate from their current Burr Ridge location into the new facility in Woodridge upon its slated delivery in late December 2016.
Currently under construction on a 10.6-acre parcel, the new build-to-suit will feature a 31,000-square-foot, two-story corporate office component with an elegant atrium lobby, open and private offices, conference rooms and an employee break room. The remainder of the building will be outfitted to support the firm’s warehouse and manufacturing requirements with a 32′ clear height, five dock doors, seven drive-in doors and an ESFR sprinkler system.
The precast concrete facility will boast a contemporary exterior design with storefront windows and an attractive steel canopy at the main entrance. It will also accommodate parking for 14 trailers and 148 vehicles.
“We are thrilled to welcome AMS to Union Pointe,” remarked Brian Quigley, Executive Vice President of Conor Commercial Real Estate. “AMS considered several locations for their new facility but decided on Union Pointe due to its outstanding highway access, prominent visibility and the pro-business environment within the Village of Woodridge – all of which have been drivers of the park’s tremendous success.”
AMS joins corporate neighbors Edward Don & Company, a worldwide leader in the distribution of foodservice equipment and supplies; Orbus Exhibit & Display Group, a manufacturer and supplier of portable modular and custom modular, exhibit and display, products, graphics and solutions; and Kellogg Company currently located at Union Pointe.
McShane Construction Company and Ware Malcomb are providing the design/build construction services for the new headquarters facility. Chris Gary of NAI Hiffman represented AMS in the pre-sale agreement. Brian Carroll and Jim Cummings of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank represented Conor Commercial.
