Cicero, Bridge Partners Break Ground On New Facility

A new distribution and manufacturing center is coming to Cicero. Town President Larry Dominick welcomed Bridge Development Partners with an official groundbreaking on Sept. 19. Bridge purchased the lot at 1531 S. 54th Ave. earlier in the year and will begin constructing a new warehouse, distribution and manufacturing center.

Called Bridge Point 290, the 323,343-square foot facility will feature state-of-the art technology on top of 18.5 acres in Cicero’s industrial park. The area laid dormant after General Electric shuttered its manufacturing facilitiy years before.

“We’re very proud to have you come to the Town of Cicero,” Dominick told a gathering at a groundbreaking in front of the construction zone.

“Cicero is a magnet for successful businesses that provide thousands of jobs for our residents. I know Bridge Point 290 will be successful and bring in many more manufacturing and warehouse operations that will create new jobs for our town.”

Construction and operation of the facility will bring new jobs to Cicero, as well as provide more tax revenue to the town. Plans are underway for a Spring 2018 completion of Bridge Point 290, which will boast 36-foot clear ceilings, 50 docks, 77 trailer positions and parking for 273 cars.

The building design groups include Premier Design + Build Group as well as Cornerstone Architects.

Business space will be leased to companies seeking a location with convenient proximity to major thoroughfares as well as the Eisenhower transitions into Congress Parkway in Chicago.
