Work underway on new DS Containers facility in West Chicago
CenterPoint Properties recently broke ground at the DuPage Business Center for DS Containers' new distribution center in West Chicago.
The center for DS Containers, which produces two-piece polymer-coated steel aerosol cans, will span 300,278 square feet. CenterPoint Properties said the building will take up 14.55 acres, making it possible for the company to expand by an additional 250,000 square feet in the future. The facility will include one drive-in door, 20 exterior dock doors, 72 car parking spaces, 27 trailer positions and a convenient location near the company’s production facility near Batavia.
“This represents a major investment in our community, and the city looks forward to working with all parties to ensure a first-rate development experience,” West Chicago Mayor Ruben Pineda said. “We look forward ... to welcoming DS Containers to our business community.”
“We are excited for the continued development of new Class A facilities at DuPage Business Center,” Edward Harrington, senior vice president of development at CenterPoint, said. “DS Containers will be the latest addition to a group of industrial tenants in the park that has flexible land sites with ready-to-go infrastructure and improvements in place. The DuPage Business Center boasts immediate developable land sites, in addition to providing the benefits of a corporate campus setting.”
