The Opus Group® to Construct Industrial Building in Oak Park, Mich.

The Opus Group (Opus) today announced the start of construction on a 275,401-square-foot speculative industrial building in Oak Park, Mich. Prior to the start of construction, the originally planned speculative building has recently been fully leased to an undisclosed user.

“We are excited to be developing a modern distribution facility on this parcel," said Mike Robinson, senior director of real estate development for Opus. “This facility is in a prime infill location with superior access to freeway routes."

The building will be located at 15100 Eight Mile Road in Oak Park. It will feature a 32-foot clear height., 44 dock doors, 57 trailer parking stalls and 196 auto parking stalls.

“To have the former Detroit Artillery Armory site fully leased and built out is a long-term dream I am beyond excited to see realized," said Oak Park City Manager Erik Tungate. “This will provide new job opportunities for our residents and an additional tax base for the City of Oak Park. Businesses that embrace advanced and modern technology and operational approaches are welcome in Oak Park, and this new development exemplifies what we look for as we continue to move down our path of excellence." 

The project is slated for completion in December 2022.  Opus is the developer, design-builder, architect and structural engineer of record. David MacDonald and Sean Cavanaugh of JLL represented Opus on the project. Paul Hoge and Gary Stephens of Signature Associates represented the seller on the transaction.
