The building is the last remaining site within the Carlow Corporate Center and sits just a half mile north of the full interchange at I-55 and Weber Rd. It was completed in November 2016 and Computershare was fully operational in the space before the end of the year.
CHICAGO—Officials from The Opus Group say they recently completed 1325 Remington, a 112,049-square-foot speculative warehouse and office building in suburban Bolingbrook. Additionally, Computershare, a global provider of financial and shareholder communication services, has signed a long-term lease agreement as the building’s first tenant – leasing 44,357 square feet of the space.
The Minneapolis-based Opus has been remarkably active in the Chicago region. As reported in GlobeSt.com, it just unveiled plans to construct a 111,345-square-foot speculative industrial development at the company’s Paragon Business Park in Romeoville, part of the I-55 submarket and just south of Bolingbrook. Opus already finished and sold two other speculative industrial developments at Paragon in 2016.
I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
