The Opus Group® Announces Construction of Speculative Industrial Building in Kenosha, Wisc.

The Opus Group (Opus) announced today construction of a 279,872-square-foot speculative industrial building in the Midwest Transportation Center in Kenosha, Wisc.

Less than three miles from the four-way interchange of Interstate 94 and Highway 50, the industrial building will offer tenants excellent freeway access. In addition, the 14.6-acre site is one of very few infill industrial sites remaining in Kenosha offering close proximity to numerous hotels, restaurants, retail outlets and corporate users.

Located at 6222 77th Ave., the building is 48 minutes from O'Hare International Airport, 35 minutes from Mitchell International Airport, and five minutes from Kenosha Regional Airport.

“We are pleased to bring this industrial development to Kenosha," said Mike Robinson, Senior Director of Real Estate Development​ for Opus. “The modern building is exceptionally close – less than a five-minute drive – from key area amenities, which will be a great benefit to users looking for industrial space in Southeastern Wisconsin."

The building features 28 rear-load dock doors expandable to 44, two drive-in doors, 60 dedicated trailer parking stalls, 199 vehicle parking stalls, 32-foot clear height and LED lighting throughout. Capable of accommodating one or multiple tenants, it will be suitable for warehouse distribution operations or light manufacturing.

“We've worked alongside Opus on several projects and are excited to embark on this project with them, which will help meet demand for new modern industrial space in the market," said Noel S. Liston, principal at Darwin Realty and leasing agent for the building.

The building is slated for completion September 2022.  

Opus is the developer, design-builder and structural engineer of record. Harris Architects, Inc. is the architect of record. Darwin Realty Principal Noel S. Liston and Senior Broker Dan Prendergast are marketing the building for lease.
