LISLE, IL-Duke Realty Corp has completed Navistar Inc.’s new corporate headquarters campus here, a project which involved the rehabilitation of 1.2 million square feet of space in interconnected buildings, new construction totaling 27,000 square feet, and overall improvements to the 87-acre site. The truck manufacturer bought the property in late 2010 from Alcatel-Lucent for about $34 million.
The project, which was completed in 12 stages for phased-in occupancy over a one-year period, included remodeling all office space and lobbies, repairing and upgrading mechanical and electrical systems, refurbishing building exteriors and parking areas, landscaping and constructing lab space, a new 8,000-square foot gallery at the main lobby and a 15,000-square foot technology design center. Duke also completed repairs and upgrades to mechanical and electrical systems, and the installation of new building automation systems.
The Navistar project began in January 2011, with 3,000 employees moving to the site from 250,000 square feet in Warrenville, IL. Jones Lang LaSalle represented Navistar the purchase of the property.
