Chicago, IL – Avison Young has negotiated the sale of a multi-tenant 35-acre land site at 4500 Kishwaukee Street in Rockford, Illinois on behalf of HSA Commercial Real Estate.

Avison Young Principals Erik Foster and Mike Wilson, based in the firm’s Chicago office and leaders of Avison Young’s U.S. industrial capital markets team, represented the seller, HSA Commercial Real Estate; the buyer was a private investor.

The industrial facility that sits on the 35-acre property is located in one of the strongest industrial submarkets in the Rockford area.
