(Itasca, IL – October 16, 2017) – PREMIER Design + Build Group, LLC and Bridge Development Partners, LLC celebrated the official groundbreaking of a 323,343 square-foot distribution warehouse on Tuesday, September 19, 2017, with representatives from the Town of Cicero including Town President, Honorable Larry Dominick. Also in attendance were executives from Cornerstone Architects, CBRE, Associated Bank, Swift Structural Design and SpaceCo, Inc.

We’re very proud to have you come to the Town of Cicero. Cicero is a magnet for successful businesses that provide thousands of jobs to our residents. I know Bridge Point 290 will be successful and bring in many more manufacturing and warehouse operations that will create new jobs to our Town.
+ Town President, Larry Dominick

The new facility is being constructed on an 18-acre lot in Cicero less than one mile from Interstate 290. The size of the site, its proximity to Chicago, close access to transportation and a massive workforce all add great benefit and will make it an in-demand distribution center.

Demolition of the existing slabs and removal of buried foundations took place prior to the commencement of new construction. Building envelope materials include insulated, load-bearing, precast concrete wall panels, structural steel, glass and glazing and canopies at entryways. It will feature 50 exterior truck dock positions (expandable to 66), 36’ clear height warehouse space and a 45 mil, fully ballasted, EPDM roofing system. An ESFR fire protection sprinkler system will be installed and 3000 amp, 277/480 volt, 3-phase, 4-wire electrical service will be brought to the building. The parking lot will host 273 parking stalls and 77 trailer stalls.

We are essentially taking a functionally obsolete site and turning it into an asset. The new facility will be a state-of-the-art, 36’ clear height, investment-grade building with the capability of meeting the needs of any number of tenants. We are excited to have this opportunity to work with the Town of Cicero. They have been instrumental in moving this project forward. We are grateful for every opportunity to work with Bridge Development Partners, LLC. They are experts at what they do and we are honored to work together with them.
