By Gabriel Circiog, Associate Editor
Chicago-based The Opus Group recently announced that Electrolux Home Products Inc. will expand its existing operations in Minooka, Illinois by occupying the remaining vacant space within the Minooka Ridge II facility.
Electrolux, by leasing the extra 365,303 square feet of space, will now occupy the entire 965,183-square-foot Minooka Ridge II facility. Mike Yungerman, vice president, real estate development for Opus Development Company, LLC, said, “We’re thrilled to see Electrolux grow its footprint within this facility and help the company meet its growing distribution needs.”
Completed in October 2008, Minooka Ridge II facility is located in the Northwest quadrant of I-80 and Ridge Road on a 52-acre site, within the Minooka Ridge Business Park. The single-story facility features 32-foot-clear ceiling height and sidewall dock bays at 30-foot clear height with an ESFR sprinkler system. The facility features parking for a total of 128 cars, including 162 truck docks, 365 trailer spaces and four drive-in doors.
The business park, with access to the I-80 corridor, offers great opportunities not only for regional but also national distribution. The suites are build-to-suit and are available for sale or lease. The Opus Group was represented by Jim Estus and Matthew Stauber from Colliers International, while Electrolux Home Products Inc. was represented by Chris Wood, Anthony Burns and Jordan Decker from DTZ.
