Marcus & Millichap is pleased to present the opportunity to acquire the property located at 15 West Industrial Drive in Kankakee, Illinois. The subject property consists of approximately 18,850 square feet of flex space and is situated on 1.72 acres of land. The two-building asset features a showroom, metal construction, three grade-level doors, and over 12,000 square feet of outside storage space. At less than $39 per square foot, the property is priced well below replacement cost. Situated within Kankakee County, the property enjoys some of the lowest property taxes in Northeast Illinois (Tax-Rates.org). Located just off of U.S. Route 52, the property sits in close proximity to Interstate 57 and is only a five-minute drive from the Greater Kankakee Airport.
The property sits within the Illinois North Area market, which contains 66.5 million square feet of industrial space. The vacancy rate closed out last year falling for five consecutive quarters down to 4.1 percent. While rent growth slowed down during 2022, market rents were still up 8.0 for the year, 210 basis points higher than the three-year annual average. Market rents now average about $5.00 per square foot, offering tenants nearly a 44 percent discount compared to the neighboring Chicago market. Thanks to a record fourth quarter, demand set a new high in 2022 with 2.5 million square feet absorbed on net, representing about 3.8 percent of existing inventory. Despite the submarket’s impressive fundamentals, there were no industrial properties under construction going into 2023. As a result, rent growth and vacancies will go unimpeded by new supply for the foreseeable future (CoStar).
