WOODRIDGE -– Morgan/Harbour Construction said construction is under way on a new 485,500 square foot speculative warehouse and distribution facility on behalf of CenterPoint Properties in Joliet.
Located at CenterPoint Way and Millsdale Road, the new facility will include 56 loading docks with the ability to accommodate another 55 docks as well as two drive-in doors. The new property will feature 32’ clear ceiling heights and parking for 218 cars and 133 trailers.
"We are excited to partner with Morgan / Harbour to construct the warehouse, especially due to their competitive pricing, attention to detail and production of high-quality work,” stated Chief Development Officer of CenterPoint, Michael Murphy. “Hand-selecting Morgan / Harbour as our construction firm has solidified our design/build team and generated tremendous interest in the building, which will be available for lease December 2013.”
Ben Warriner, vice president of construction for Morgan / Harbour is the project executive and Scott Staros is the project manager. Cornerstone Architects is providing the architectural services. The facility is slated for completion in December 2013.
