Venture One Real Estate has completed a 100,000-square-foot expansion to an existing Danfoss distribution facility in Venture One’s Loves Park Corporate Center in Loves Park, Illinois. Venture One developed Danfoss’s existing 100,000-square-foot warehouse in 2011. The combined 200,000 square foot logistics facility is adjacent to Danfoss’s 250,000 square foot office and production building—home to Danfoss’ VLT Drives division.
The fully air-conditioned building features 28-foot clear height, an ESFR sprinkler system, 50 car parking, six exterior docks and one drive-in door. ATMI Precast worked with Meridian Design Build as the general contractor, Partners in Design as the architect and Jacob & Hefner which provided civil engineering.
Danfoss began operations in the Rockford area in 1982 and moved to their current location in Loves Park in 2001 with 125,000 square feet. In 2008, Danfoss doubled their manufacturing in Loves Park after considering proposals in China and Mexico. The expanded distribution facility brings their total space in Loves Park to 450,000 square feet.
Loves Park Corporate Center is a 60-acre development that is home to the Pepsi distribution building and Danfoss. There are 38.9 acres of remaining land which fronts I-90/I-39 approximately half a mile north of the four-way interchange at Riverside Boulevard.
