ChicagoHFF recently arranged acquisition financing for a Chicago-area industrial portfolio totaling 1.4 million square feet. An HFF debt placement team led by Managing Director Christopher Carroll and Senior Managing Director Brian Carlton represented the borrower—Transwestern Investment Group.

The properties included in the transaction are:

  • 301-363 N. Third Ave., in Des Plaines;
  • 5300 Proviso Drive, in Melrose Park;

  • 5100 W. 123rd, in Alsip.

The portfolio is occupied by eight tenants, including Dulin Metals Co., Permasteelisa North America, Midland Paper Co., Keystone Automotive Industries and Cornfields Inc. The assets offer easy access to the greater Chicago area, through their strategic location just off I-294 and I-94.
