In May 2012, Home Depot signed a lease for 1.6 million s.f. at CenterPoint Intermodal Center, making it their second distribution center at the intermodal development in Joliet, Will County, IL. This build-to-suit facility will serve as Home Depot's Stocking Distribution Center (SDC) and, upon completion in June 2013, will be the largest building ever constructed in Joliet, IL. Home Depot has chosen this site due to the transportation savings and proximity to intermodal operations.
