Darwin Realty/CORFAC International Represents Tenant in 353,000-SF Industrial Lease

Darwin Realty/CORFAC International in Elmhurst, Illinois, is pleased to announce that the firm has negotiated a long-term lease for the 352,338 square foot warehouse facility located at 150 E. Crossroads Parkway in Bolingbrook, Illinois, to Chicago-based apparel retailer AKIRA. 

Principal Noel S. Liston and Associate Nick Krejci worked with the leading women’s fashion retailer for a consolidation of multiple warehouse facilities. AKIRA will utilize the new facility at 150 E. Crossroads for warehouse, fulfillment, and e-commerce operations.  AKIRA’s office and headquarters will remain in the City of Chicago. 

"Working with Noel and Nick has been a delight. Their expertise, patience and client commitment gave us the confidence to see the process through,” said Eric Hsueh, AKIRA co-owner. “AKIRA is a growing omni-channel women's fashion retailer and this new warehouse gives us the foundation for our next phase of growth. We're excited about our future and thrilled to move into our new home."  

The 150 E. Crossroads facility features 30’ clear ceilings, 46 exterior loading docks and energy efficient lighting. Less than a mile from I-55 the building’s location is ideal for nationwide distribution. 

Liston and Krejci of Darwin Realty/CORFAC International worked on behalf of AKIRA in the transaction and JLL’s Keith Stauber and Steve Ostrowski represented the building owner.

Liston and Krejci also recently teamed up with L. Mason Capitani’s/CORFAC International Principal Jason Capitani, CCIM, SIOR, in Detroit for the sale and leaseback of three industrial buildings in Michigan. The pair also completed the sale of a single tenant fully leased industrial building in Evansville, Indiana with fellow CORFAC members Will Duncan and Todd Whitchurch of Duncan Commercial/CORFAC International in Louisville, Kentucky.
