Yet another industrial park development is planned in the I-94 corridor in Kenosha County.
Chicago-based Bridge Development Partners LLC plans to develop a 348-acre industrial park west of I-94 and south of Highway 142/County Highway S. The site currently lies within the Town of Paris. It is located adjacent to the iconic Mars Cheese Castle. Directly to the east of I-94 is the site where a 1 million-square-foot distribution center and a 500,000-square-foot distribution center will be built for Amazon.com Inc.
The owners of eight properties totaling 348 acres have submitted a request asking the City of Kenosha to annex the site, Kenosha Mayor Keith Bosman said.
The proposed business park development is the latest of several planned in Kenosha County. City of Industry, Calif.-based Majestic Realty Co. plans to develop a 309-acre business park northeast of 88th Avenue and County Highway S in the Town of Somers, just east of the Amazon site. Lincolnshire, Ill.-based Venture One Real Estate LLC plans to develop a 254-acre business park east of I-94 between 110th and 122nd streets in Pleasant Prairie. Greenwich, Ct.-based Starwood Capital Group plans to develop a 10-acre office development between 88th and 91st Avenues and 76th Street and Prairie Ridge Boulevard in Pleasant Prairie.
Several speculative industrial developments are also planned in Kenosha County. Majestic Realty plans to build a 1.2-million-square-foot warehouse and distribution center on an 88-acre site east of 88th Avenue and south of Bain Station Road in Pleasant Prairie. Zilber Property Group plans to build a 176,000-square-foot speculative industrial building near Highway 31 and 95th Street in LakeView Corporate Park in Pleasant Prairie.
“There’s quite a bit of interest (in Kenosha County from developers),” said Bosman. “There’s continued interest here and in Pleasant Prairie. It’s a good place to be right now.”
