Industrial Outdoor Ventures to Develop Two Industrial Service Facilities in Zion, Illinois

by Kristin Harlow

ZION, ILL. — Industrial Outdoor Ventures (IOV) has acquired two parcels totaling 56 acres in Zion, a city in northeast Illinois near the Wisconsin border. Named Trumpet Park Spec Development, the project will consist of a pair of industrial service facilities (ISFs). Project costs are estimated at $35 million. The development will feature up to 1,200 truck trailer parking spaces and more than 26,000 square feet of maintenance and service buildings. ISFs provide supply chain infrastructure solutions to industries such as transportation, bulk material distribution, last-mile logistics, heavy equipment and utilities.

The project marks IOV’s first ground-up development in the Chicago market. The design team includes Spaceco, which will provide civil and surveying services, and Arete Design Studio, which will provide architecture, planning and design services. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2023 and be completed in the fourth quarter of 2023. Chris Volkert, Ned Frank and Jeff Devine of Colliers represented the institutional seller in the land sale. Volkert and Frank, along with colleague Pat Hake, will market the project for lease.
