CREST HILL – The Crest Hill Industrial Park is getting another large industrial facility this year.
Atlanta-based Ridgeline Property Group is developing a 438,150-square-foot Class A distribution center on 29 acres of land at the southwest corner of Division Street and Enterprise Boulevard, according to a company news release.
Concrete and steel work is beginning this month, and completion is scheduled for August.
According to Ridgeline, the site was selected because of its proximity to Interstates 55 and 80.
“Demand in the market remains strong, but there is a limited supply of space in the submarket,” Pete Harmon, partner at Ridgeline, said in the news release.
Harmon said the site is one of the last remaining strategic sites along Interstate 55.
The development will feature a cross-dock facility with 32-foot clear heights, four drive-in overhead doors, 36 exterior docks with a potential to expand to 76, 319 parking spaces, 163 trailer parking spaces and early suppression fast response sprinklers, the release stated.
Ridgeline is partnering with Cabot Properties on the development.
The Crest Hill City Council approved Jan. 3 a change to subdivide the Ridgeline property for the new development, assistant city administrator Heather McGuire said.
