UPDATE, 1:30 p.m. June 8: USAA Real Estate and Venture One Real Estate are planning a 174,000-square-foot speculative industrial building on the South Side.

Venture One Real Estate transferred the property at 2445 South Rockwell Street to USAA for $5.6 million, yet the two remain partners on the project, Venture One Principal Ryan Stoller said. They are planning a $17.5 million logistics center on the 8.2 acre property.

USAA secured an $11.6 million construction loan on the property from Wells Fargo.

The Chicago Plan Commission approved the construction, and in April the City Council voted to support a county tax incentive for the project that would reduce its property tax assessment over the course of 12 years. The incentive was expected to save the developers a total of $2.2 million.

Construction on the project has begun, Stoller said, with delivery expected in the first quarter of 2019.
