Tim Thompson, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of Industrial Brokerage, HSA Commercial Real Estate, has announced that Paul Broderick and Brad Borkowski represented Cream Wine Company in the seven-year lease of a 12,500-square-foot space in a 107,000-square-foot warehouse facility at 2455 S. Damen Ave.
Founded in 2001, Cream Wine Company is a leading artisan wine distribution and marketing company owned and operated by two Chicago entrepreneurs. As a wholesale wine distributor and importer, the firm serves top restaurants and retailers across Illinois. It will use its new space as a sales and distribution center for its wine inventory.
The search for appropriate warehouse space took more than a year, according to Borkowski. “The challenge was to find affordable space within five miles of company headquarters at 118 N. Peoria,” said Borkowski. Also critical, the company needed a warehouse that could be temperature-controlled to protect the wine inventory.
Edward C. Wabick, Mark A. Nelson and Michael D. Nelson of Paine/Wetzel ONCOR International represented ownership, Damen Market Inc. in the transaction.
