Oak Brook, IL – CenterPoint Properties recently signed a long-term lease with Veterans
Distribution of Chicago for 5999 West Butterfield in Hillside, Illinois. The 295,393 SF
facility will be fully leased through September of 2025. Cushman & Wakefield represented
CenterPoint on the transaction and the tenant was co-represented by Summit Realty Group
and Cushman & Wakefield.
"The Hillside location worked out great for Veterans Distribution because it is centrally
located within the Chicago metropolitan area," said Brad Factor, Vice President of Veterans
Distribution of Chicago. "This facility will allow us to grow and make us a lot more
efficient operating out of one building that accommodates both space requirements,
as well as material handling equipment. CenterPoint was excellent to work with, extremely fair,
and provided just about every desired property improvement making it built-to-suit."

Wisconsin and Northwest Indiana. The company offers several transportation solutions aimed

have a Chicago-based operation. We are confident this new location will help the tenant to better
manage their strategic and logistic objectives," said Sean Maher, Chief Operating Officer for CenterPoint Properties.
