Marcus & Millichap is pleased to present the opportunity to acquire the property located at 2936 Wireton Road in Blue Island, Illinois, occupied by the current owner, Wright’s Furniture Warehouse. The subject property consists of approximately 11,127 square feet of warehouse space and is situated on 1.01 acres of land. The single-tenant asset features metal construction, one dock-high door set in a truck well, two grade-level doors, an asphalt paved parking lot with 14 spaces, and a clear height of 16’. Situated near major thoroughfares, the property is located less than three miles from both onramps to Interstates 57 and 294. Upon the sale of the property, Wright’s Furniture Warehouse plans to conduct a short-term leaseback, making the property available for occupancy by the buyer. This sale offers investors the opportunity to acquire a well-built warehouse below the replacement cost. Additionally, 0.25 acres positioned behind the property can be purchased for future development or outdoor storage space.
The property sits within the high barrier-to-entry Near South Cook submarket, containing a massive 52.6 million square feet of industrial space. The submarket consists mostly of logistics space, accounting for 66 percent of the inventory. Yet, specialized properties, including manufacturing facilities, make up a sizeable 30 percent of the submarket, followed by flex space at 4 percent. With net absorption far outpacing deliveries, the vacancy rate dropped to 4.5 percent during Q1 2023. At only 2.2 percent, the availability is even more limited among comparable properties between 10,000 and 50,000 square feet. As a result of limited supply, rent growth for the entire Near South Cook submarket rose further into record territory at 9.5 percent in Q1. Given that construction activity represents just 1.3 percent of current inventory levels, new supply will likely have minimal impact on rents and vacancies for the foreseeable future (CoStar).
