The Opus Group (Opus) announced today that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has signed a lease at
1325 Remington, a 112,049-square-foot building located in Carlow Corporate Center, an established business park in Bolingbrook. The car manufacturer will occupy 25,523 square feet, using the space as a training facility for its employees.
“We're thrilled to have Fiat Chrysler Automobiles as a long term tenant in our building," said Josh Bauer, manager of real estate development at Opus. “This deal is a true example of the perseverance of our team to complete a transaction that meets the needs of FCA and its employees."
Among the many features that attracted FCA to the property was its ideal location. Situated on nine acres in the I-55 industrial corridor, this project is just a half mile from Weber Road, a primary I-55 interchange with easy freeway access. In addition, the building includes desirable amenities and offered flexible space options for the new tenant, such as 28-foot clear height, up to 242 car parking spaces, three drive-in doors, 11 loading docks with room for expansion, state-of-the-art lighting systems and an ESFR (Early Suppression Fast Response) fire sprinkler system.
Construction on 1325 Remington was completed in November 2016. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will occupy their space beginning January 2020. Opus served as the developer, design-builder and architect, structural engineer and interior designer of record for the building. Jordan Decker and Chris Cobb with Cushman Wakefield represented FCA, and Dominic DeRose, Vern Shultz and Charles Canale with Colliers represented Opus in the leasing agreement.
