Pleasant Prairie officials recently approved preliminary site and operational plans for mass grading at the future site of Uline Inc.‘s corporate headquarters. Waukegan, Ill.-based Uline plans to move its headquarters to a new facility that will be built on a 200-acre site southwest of I-94 and Highway 165/Q. The facility will consist of 218,000 square feet of office space and 1 million square feet of distribution space.
The recent approval by village officials will allow grading to begin for the installation of storm water facilities and infrastructure improvements for the project. Construction of the corporate offices is expected to begin later this summer and be complete during the spring of 2010. Initially, about 650 employees are expected to work in the Uline headquarters. Construction for the distribution space is expected to be complete by the end of 2009. Initially 200 employees will work at the distribution center.
Later, in a second phase of the project, Uline plans to add another 200,000 square feet of office space and 800,000 square feet of distribution space. Completion of all phases for the Uline campus is expected to be complete in 2015.
