WAUKEGAN, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Luxor Workspaces expanded warehouse operations to a newly built, 190,000-square-foot distribution center located along Interstate 94 just south of Gurnee Mills.
The move is expected to create eight new jobs, enhance Luxor’s level of service to major Midwest customers located along the I-94 corridor while helping to position the company for rapid growth over the next decade.
The facility was developed by Center Point Properties and built by Morgan/Harbour Construction. Sam Badger, Senior Vice President with CBRE’s Advisory & Transaction Services group, served as Luxor’s broker in the search for the new property, and Vivek Singla with CBRE’s Project Management team served as Luxor’s tenant improvement project manager during the final buildout.
Highlights include 36’ clear high ceilings, 22 docks, and a 7,000-square-foot fully furnished front office area complete with a conference room, breakroom, and offices. The east exterior wall of the building features a backlit Luxor Workspaces logo, easily visible to the thousands of drivers who travel along I-94 each day.
“This move represents a long-term investment in both our company and the area,” said Davis Ozier, Director of Operations for Luxor Workspaces. “After a strategic review, we identified the need to optimize our distribution capabilities to best position us for future growth. We also decided to maintain our strong presence in the region while streamlining operations to better serve our longtime partners in the area.”
“When you visit our new warehouse, you’re likely to see someone who has served our customers for 10, 20, or even 30 years,” added Luxor President, Paul Roche. “Considering that most of our employees are located around southeastern Wisconsin and the northern suburbs of Illinois, it was vital to choose a location that enabled our existing team members to continue providing industry-leading fulfillment to our customers, while creating new employment opportunities in the area.”
With the move taking place just prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, outbound shipments are back up to full capacity. The Luxor office staff continues to work out of the company’s headquarters, located in Waukegan, Illinois.
