Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announced today that it has successfully represented Animal Supply Company in a long-term, 220,000-square-foot lease at 1323 Brewster Creek Boulevard in Bartlett, Illinois. Animal Supply Company, the nation’s leading distributor of wholesale pet products, signed the lease within Brewster Creek Business Park following NKF’s strategic analysis of suitable, local options for the company’s new location.
Relocating from 6450 Muirfield Drive in Hanover Park, Illinois, Animal Supply Company selected NKF to assist in finding the firm a more efficient space. NKF Senior Managing Director Adam Marshall, SIOR, CCIM, Executive Managing Director Brian Carroll and Director Mark Deady, CCIM, provided site selection services for the firm, along with lease negotiations and financial analyses. Animal Supply Company secured 220,000 square feet within Brewster Creek Business Park based on its location.
“Animal Supply Company wanted to consolidate two facilities into one to gain efficiencies and create expansion for its growing business,” said Marshall. “Brewster Creek Business Park was ultimately selected after a Chicago area search due to its ideal distribution location and its proximity to the firm’s existing work force.”
1323 Brewster Creek Boulevard is a 421,401-square-foot, Class A warehouse facility. Newly constructed in the summer of 2017, the property features 32’ clear height, 48 dock doors, 40 trailer spaces, T-5 lighting and ESFR sprinklers. Jeffrey Janda and Steve Bass of Lee & Associates represented ownership in the lease negotiations.
