HSA Commercial Starts Construction on 3 Warehouses Totaling 855,748 SF in Indiana and Wisconsin

August 6, 2021

Chicago-based HSA Commercial Real Estate today announced the firm has started construction on three new industrial warehouses totaling 855,748 square feet in Indiana and Wisconsin. All of the developments are being built on a speculative basis, or without tenants lined up in advance.

“Significant e-commerce growth continues to drive demand for newly constructed Class A warehouse space along critical last-mile corridors,” said Robert Smietana, vice chairman and CEO of HSA Commercial Real Estate. “With these three new spec projects, we’ll expand the options available to a diverse range of users whose expansion has kept vacancy near historic lows, even as deliveries have increased.”

According to JLL’s recent U.S. Industrial Demand Study, industrial tenants are requiring over 660 million square feet of space, exceeding both 2020 and 2019 levels and marking a 22% increase in year-over-year warehouse demand.

HSA Commercial’s new developments include:

  • Gateway Industrial VI – 915 Airtech Parkway, Plainfield, Ind.:

Located in Gateway Business Park, immediately southwest of Indianapolis International Airport, Gateway Industrial VI is a 278,148-square-foot warehouse that is the sixth HSA has developed in the 55-acre park since 2004.

The building, which replaces a vacant structure on the 8.2-acre site, is scheduled for completion in June 2022 and will include 32-foot clear heights, 13 truck docks (with potential to double) and 102 parking spaces. Located across from village-owned land, the project aligns with officials’ plans to revitalize the stretch of Pennsylvania Avenue between Layton and Edgerton avenues.
