OAK BROOK, IL – CenterPoint Properties is pleased to announce Weiss-Röhlig USA LLC’s U.S. headquarters expansion into the remaining vacant space of their built-to-suit redevelopment facility located at 1601 Estes Avenue, Elk Grove Village, Illinois. CenterPoint originally developed the project with Weiss-Röhlig as the anchor tenant for the project and completed the building in December of 2013.

Weiss-Röhlig will fully-occupy the USGBC LEED Silver Certified building, which totals 87,975 square feet. CenterPoint is pleased to continue its long and successful history of redevelopment and ownership in the O’Hare Submarket. CenterPoint currently owns more than 1.6M square feet in the highly active Chicago sub-market.

“Weiss-Röhlig’s decision to expand operations into the remaining 37,867 square feet of the facility is a great sign of positive growth for the company and the regional economy,” said Edward Harrington, Senior Vice President, Development or CenterPoint. “The modern LEED Silver Certified facility offers reduced environmental impacts on the surrounding community, in addition to the strategic location that provides significant logistics and transportation savings.”

Situated on 4.4 acres of land, the facility features energy efficient HVAC systems, motion operated light fixtures, and construction waste recycling. The property includes a 16,000 SF office, 15 loading docks, 2 drive-in doors and parking for 109 cars. Cornerstone Architects provided the architectural services for the facility, while Morgan / Harbour Construction served as the general contractor for the project. Jim Estes of Colliers International represented CenterPoint and Chris Zubel of CBRE represented Weiss-Röhlig on the long-term lease transaction.

Weiss-Röhlig is a worldwide leader in transport and logistics, with its core business focusing on overland transport, air and sea freight, and complex logistics solutions.
