NAI Hiffman’s Chris Gary represents Skender in new long-term industrial lease
CHICAGO, IL (July 24, 2018) – NAI Hiffman is proud to announce it has represented Skender in a new 105,560 square-foot industrial lease at 3348 South Pulaski Road in Chicago.
After 60 years in the business, Skender has recently undergone vast rebranding: a name change, the acquisition of a digital boutique design firm, and the arrival of two new leaders for the company’s design and technology offerings. These steps were taken in an effort to focus on the manufacturing business in Chicago – specifically, the manufacturing of modular buildings. Mark Skender, the company’s CEO, began a pursuit for a large industrial building that offers the space needed to develop business.
The industrial space Skender will occupy is a brand new development with immediate access to the I-55 expressway and a 15 minute drive to the Loop. In addition to the access of major Chicago resources, 3348 South Pulaski is minutes from four of Chicago’s ten intermodal freight yards that process 50% of the total rail freight in the nation. This location will allow Skender to not only compete in the Chicago manufacturing market, but across the country.
“I look forward to seeing where Skender goes next. It’s exciting to see a company so invigorated by changing markets. This large space will suit them well in the growth and development they are pursuing,” said NAI Hiffman Executive Vice President Chris Gary who represented Skender in the transaction with PRII Pulaski Industrial, LLC.
