Home » News » Matteson 57 Commerce Center to be developed in Illinois at a cost of US$ 70M

The groundbreaking for a Matteson 57 Commerce Center took place recently in Illinois. Dallas-based developer, Crow Holdings Industrial (CMI) and several elected officials were gathered to mark the start of this industrial project. According to Matt Kurucz, CMI’s Midwest regional partner, this would be a US$ 70 million build-to-suit, spec building for or two tenants.

Mayor, Sheila Chalmers-Currin welcomed the industrial project, stating that it addresses the regional need for more logistical companies in Southland. She also mentioned that Matteson 57 Commerce Center was ideally situated behind a Menards home improvement store and far from homes. Therefore, this implies that the project wouldn’t have any negative impact on the surrounding community.

Presently, the project’s site is a vacant soybean landfill, located at 21500 Gateway Drive in Matteson. But soon the site will be converted into the 758,000-square-foot Matteson 57  Center. This development is CMI’s first industrial project in south Cook County and the developers expect it to be completed by May 2023. Cushman & Wakefield will handle the marketing for this Class A space.

Featured amenities and plans for the Matteson 57 Commerce Center

Based on designs by Harris Architects, Matteson 57 Commerce Center will incorporate architectural lighting and fenestrated wall panels. Additionally, smart coloring and prominent glass office corners will be implemented, which replicate the latest in modern design trends. Future tenants will have access to amenities such as a 40′ clear ceiling height and 100 exterior loading docks. It also features 380 car parking stalls and 210 truck trailer parking stalls. 

The project’s general contractor, Pepper Construction, will be using a tilt-wall technique, which hasn’t been used in Chicago for years. CMI’s development associate, Jack Rabenn described the construction technique to be used for the park. Rabenn said panels would be poured at the job site in frames, then lifted, or tilted, into position. From a construction standpoint, he said these will be both structural concrete panels. In the end, using this method would help with accelerating the project’s construction.
