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, 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.
