Romeoville Continues to Excel with Industrial Growth
Romeoville continues to benefit from the demand for industrial space. This week at the Village Board meeting, the Pizzuti Companies proposed to complete 80 acres of undeveloped property along Taylor Road. The proposal, approved by the Village Board, included over one million square feet of industrial space with four possible plans. This development will be located adjacent to the existing Pinnacle Business Center previously developed by Pizzuti.
“We are fortunate that the I-55 Corridor continues to be a strong market for large scale distribution,” said Mayor John Noak. “We are excited to continue our long standing relationship with Pizzuti as we develop these properties.”
This will be Pizzuti’s 13th development in Romeoville, totaling over 500 acres.
At the same meeting, Opus Development Company requested approval for an Amendment to the General Development Plan for the Paragon Business Park. The new proposal approved by the Board, included development of the northern 22 acres of the Business Park located on Taylor Road. Two site plans were approved for Opus with a maximum of 375,000 s.f .
The Opus Development Company is a family of commercial real estate development, construction and design companies headquartered in Minneapolis with offices and projects across the country.
“These two industrial developments will potentially bring in hundreds or even thousands of more jobs, as well as continue to diversify our property tax base. Developments like this can greatly benefit the Village of Romeoville and our school district, while generating new revenue without requiring additional services,” said Mayor Noak.
