Existing Chemical Manufacturing Facility Needed

A west coast industrial broker has notified DCEO of the facility search requirement outlined below.

Existing Chemical Manufacturing Facility Needed

Location:  Illinois with easy access to railway.  We are also considering other states in the Mid West.

Type:  Lease or purchase

Term:  Long term

Size: 300,000 SF and up

We will consider all existing chemical manufacturing facilities.  Plants with reactors are preferred and must be on a rail line.

Timing:  ASAP

Please submit all brochures, offering memorandum, floor plans, zoning, asking rates, operating expenses, ceiling height, name of rail line and ownership name by Tuesday 3/9 at noon.

For communities with an available existing chemical manufacturing facility, please submit the type of information mentioned above to me,david.pierson@illinois.gov by noon, Tuesday, March 9, 2010.

Concerning the deadline, information on existing chemical facilities may be submitted after that date, but the facility information may not make it into a report the site selection advisors must prepare by the end of the week. 

Regarding planned investment and employment, that data is not known at this time.  It depends on a couple variables.  Also, there is not interest in build-to-suit offers at the present time.      

Thank you advance.
