COOK COUNTY, ILL. — On behalf of DP Partners, Meridian Design Build has completed a 496,000-square-foot speculative industrial facility within DP Partners’ LogistiCenter at Sauk Village in Cook County. The building, which is located 20 miles south of Chicago, sits on a 26.5-acre site. Features of the facility include 32-foot clear heights, 50-by-50-foot warehouse bays with 60 feet deep staging bays, two drive-in doors, and parking for 189 cars and 59 trailers. The design of the front-loaded facility provides the option to cross-dock and/or rail-serve the rear of the building, and allows for 1.2 million square feet of expansion. Joe Blanchard and Tim Jones handled the project for Meridian Design Build; Palatine, Ill.-based Harris Architects provided architectural services for the project.
