CHICAGO, IL – David Liebman, SIOR, JD, LEED Green Associate, Managing Broker of Merit Partners, is pleased to announce that Venture One Real Estate, LLC, a commercial property investment company, has purchased a 21,672-square-foot distribution center at 65 Ambrogio Drive in Gurnee, Illinois. Venture One plans to rehab the property and then re-market it for lease or sale as a single-tenant industrial property.

David Liebman represented the seller, Chenille Kraft Co., while Venture One represented itself.

The expandable, single-user property on 1.41 acres is well-situated for expansion and redevelopment, in part due to its immediate access for trucks exiting or entering the full interchange at Hwy 41 and Washington Ave, and close access to the I-294 full interchange at Grand Avenue. The Village of Gurnee’s competitive, pro-business environment together with low Lake County taxes also contributes to the property’s appeal.

“In today’s distribution industry, location and access to a skilled and affordable labor pool are key,” explains Liebman. “Tenants who will choose this building will benefit from the direct expressway access and the high quality Lake County labor pool.”
