Testa Produce Chicago, IL
In April 2011, WBS Equities, LLC completed work on a 91,000 square foot state-of-the-art distribution facility for Testa Produce. The building, located in the Stockyards Industrial Corridor in Chicago, is the first LEED(R) Platinum Freezer/Cooler building in the United States. WBS was hired by Testa Produce to work as a part of the Testa development team for the 4 year duration of the project. WBS identified the land site, worked on the assemblage, negotiated a Redevelopment Agreement with the City of Chicago, sourced financing for the project using Recovery Zone Bonds and New Markets Tax Credits and acted as Owner’s Representative for the duration of the project.
