The buildings were acquired from institutional owners in two separate transactions and comprise multi-tenant assets 100% leased to new and existing GLP customers. With the addition of these two facilities, GLP now owns over 11 million sq ft (1 million sqm) in the Chicago market.
The first asset is a fully leased 308,000 sq ft (29,000 sqm) distribution building in Bedford Park, a desirable in-fill sub-market located near Chicago's Midway Airport, which is home to major FedEx, UPS and USPS facilities, along with the CSX intermodal.

The location offers immediate access to Chicago's urban population density with proximity to the I-290, I-294 and I-88 highways leading to excellent labor supply while serving as an ideal choice for "last-mile" delivery to consumers.
Amy Curry, GLP's Eastern Regional Director, said, "The quality and location of these two facilities
complement our Chicago portfolio well. GLP remains on the lookout for opportunistic assets that
will strengthen our network of state-of-the-art logistics facilities to better serve customers across
