HSA Commercial Real Estate and New York-based Clarion Partners LLC today jointly announced the firms have signed a 375,000-square-foot lease with DSC Logistics at the Heartland Corporate Center warehouse development at 21530 SW Frontage Road in Shorewood, Ill., near the I-55 and I-80 interchange. Des Plaines, Ill.-based DSC Logistics has already taken occupancy of 250,000 square feet at the building to start processing inbound deliveries and, within the next six months, will expand to occupy half of the newly built distribution center once additional interior and site improvements are completed.
The 757,880-square-foot Heartland Corporate Center building was developed by HSA Commercial Real Estate in partnership with Clarion Partners on a 46-acre land site. The distribution center features 36-foot clear heights, 108 truck docks and 240 parking spaces for employees and visitors. Exterior construction was completed earlier this year.
“We are excited to add another quality tenant to our Heartland Corporate Center as it contributes to the continued leasing momentum in the I-80 submarket,” said Michael Williams, vice president with Clarion Partners. “We are proud to expand our relationship with DSC Logistics and look forward to future opportunities.”
“Our partners are pleased to welcome DSC Logistics as the first tenant at our Heartland Corporate Center development,” said Robert Smietana, vice chairman and CEO with HSA Commercial Real Estate. “With our location at the I-55 and I-80 interchange and our state-of-the-art facility design, we are really optimistic about our leasing prospects for the other half of the building.”
