Light Manufacturing/Retail Bldg Available:

October 11th, 2019|

We recently received info on and toured an outstanding facility available on the north edge of Milford, IL. The property has housed the Looker Products company in recent years, but was previously the Milford Airport complex. I actually got my first ever airplane ride there when I was 12 years old and went on to get my own private pilot’s license a few years later at the U of I. The property has a 60 x 200 main building, which was used as a small manufacturing plant, plus it also has 2000 sq. ft. of built in loft area for offices, storage, or additional assembly. There are 4 additional buildings covering over 13,000 sq. ft. (formerly aircraft hangers), that are used for storage as well. The front of the building, facing IL Rt. 1, can easily accommodate retail, offices, or employee comfort areas. There is much more, but the property has far too many unique perks and built in efficiencies to mention here. We have a good deal more information that we can provide, or we can set up a time for interested parties to view this amazing location. Please help spread the word about this opportunity.
Thanks… Ken
