Conor Commercial Real Estate has finalized a full-building lease with one of the world’s largest e-commerce retailers at Last Mile Logistics Center I-55 in the Southwest Side’s Gage Park neighborhood. Published reports say the tenant is Amazon, which has been expanding its Chicago-area presence.
The 316,500-square-foot facility was delivered in late 2018 and is the second Chicago-area development that the customer has leased from Conor this year.
“Last Mile Logistics Center was designed for e-commerce fulfillment with an in-city location of significant scale, a high-throughput design, proximity to I-55 and immediate access to the Chicago residential population,” said Conor EVP Brian Quigley.
He added, “It’s next to impossible to find an industrial-zoned site of this size in the city of Chicago, making this an irreplaceable link in the Chicago e-commerce supply chain.”
Cushman & Wakefield’s Larry Goldwasser, Colin Green, Matthew Cowie and Jason West represented Conor in leasing negotiations.
