A caisson permit has been issued for the parking garage portion of a major new warehouse and distribution center in West Town, just west of the river at 1104 N Elston Avenue. This 405-vehicle garage segment will be located at the southern end of the 11-acre property and will connect directly to the new Class A warehouse building via a skybridge. The project as a whole is being developed by Logistics Property Company and designed by Ware Malcomb.
The warehouse building itself will have two designated tenant levels, each with 36-foot ceiling spans and 250,000 square feet in area. These floors will also be able to accommodate up to 25,000 square feet of accessory office apiece. There will also be two loading levels with 28 truck docks in total, as well as parking for other operational vehicles.
Beyond the on-site parking garage, workers will have other transit options as well. These include bus service for Route 70 at the adjacent Division & Elston intersection, along with bus service for Route 56 and CTA Blue Line service also within a 10-minute walk.
Walsh Construction is serving as the general contractor, with the current parking garage caisson permit listed as $17,873,815. Completion is anticipated for next year.
