CenterPoint Announces Built-to-Suit Wheeled Storage Yard at CenterPoint Intermodal Center – Joliet, IL
CenterPoint Properties is proud to announce the development of an 8.67-acre build-to-suit wheeled storage yard for California Multimodal, LLC (“CMI”), a full service 3PL that provides warehousing and trucking services nationwide, at CenterPoint Intermodal Center – Joliet. Adam Roth of NAI Hiffman worked diligently with CenterPoint on the transaction.
“We’re thrilled to welcome another new tenant to CIC-Joliet, and fortunate to provide an ideal location that aligns so well with CMI’s supply chain operations,” remarked Brian McKiernan, Senior Vice President of Development for CenterPoint. “We’re confident that this partnership will not only benefit CMI’s presence and capabilities in the Midwest, but also contribute to CIC-Joliet’s sustained growth.”
The CMI wheeled storage yard will be equipped with secure perimeter fencing, 40 block heater receptacles, and a 2,500 SF stand-alone office building. The new facility will provide CMI with the region’s most competitive drayage rates and immediate access to the Union Pacific Joliet and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Intermodal Terminals, facilitating more efficient distribution of domestic and international cargo. Construction of the facility is expected to be complete by fall 2015.
“We’re excited to partner with CenterPoint and kickoff operations at CIC-Joliet,” remarked Joe Berni, Vice President at California Multimodal, LLC. “The park’s transportation infrastructure and logistics features will be valuable in streamlining our internal processes, and better servicing our existing and future clients.”
New supporting infrastructure, proximity to two intermodal parks and the interstate system, and access to a strong local labor pool are only a few of the benefits to locating within CIC-Joliet.
