Meridian Design Build Breaks Ground on 358,879 SF Spec Industrial Building in Chicago
CHICAGO — Meridian Design Build has broken ground on a 358,879-square-foot speculative industrial building on behalf of NorthPoint Development in Chicago. The new facility will be situated on a 31.1-acre site at 12144 S. Ave. O on the city’s southeast side. Plans call for a clear height of 36 feet, four drive-in doors, 257 auto parking stalls, 106 trailer parking stalls and up to 92 loading docks. The project will be the first building in NorthPoint’s 200-acre Avenue O Industrial Park, a 2.3 million-square-foot master-planned development. The site was previously home to the Republic Steel mill. The project team includes StudioNorth Architecture and Jacob & Hefner Associates.
