Logistics firm leases space in new Aurora building

Woodridge, IL (January 08, 2009) – Midwest Warehouse & Distribution System Inc. last month signed a six-month lease for 350,000 square feet in a new industrial building in Aurora. The lease starts Jan. 15 for the space at 4100 Ferry Road, the first building to be completed in the Butterfield East park near the intersection of Interstate 88 and State Route 59. Midwest is the first tenant in the building, which is about 550,000 square feet and was completed in October by Indianapolis-based Duke Realty Corp. Midwest President and CEO Ed Borkowski says the space is to accommodate some annual seasonal overflow from a longtime customer and that Midwest is in talks with other customers that might result in extending the lease.
