also pointed to the success of a McShane spec development in McCook that is now two-thirds leased.He
project on 65th Street is equal distance to I-55.
‘There's very little new development that hasn't been build-to-suit,' Purinton said. ‘There aren't any 30-foot clear buildings available in Bedford Park.'Purinton
predicts two to three tenants will subdivide his
building on 65th Street.
‘Bedford Park is a real positive, supportive community as well,' Purinton said. ‘It's easy to do business there.It's very quick from presentation of an idea to execution.'
Unlike the past when buildings were built all the way up the sidewalk with employee parking on the north side of 65th Street, Purinton
said the village of Bedford Park now requires setbacks for parking onsite.
