MOLTO PROPERTIES – 7720 LEHIGH AVE.
Molto Properties acquired the 7720 Lehigh Avenue property in Niles, Illinois from MFRI Inc. The facility was originally built in 1954 on an 8-acre land site. The privately held entrepreneurial industrial real estate firm aimed to redevelop the existing site into a 136,000 square-foot class A distribution center.
Krusinski Construction Company was hired by Molto Properties and began with the demolition of an existing 103,500 square-foot brick building and a 3,200 square-foot metal shed. The speculative state-of-the-art distribution center consists of 130,000 square-feet of office and warehouse space with 20 expandable docks, 3 drive-in doors and detention basins which were added to protect against flooding. 152 parking spaces are available and the surrounding landscape completes this aesthetically pleasing distribution center.
The site work and facility were completed within a six-month period.
