Wangard Partners, Inc., (Wangard) and Hunzinger Construction Company (Hunzinger) sold their recently completed 200,000 SF, one-story industrial/distribution center building in the Lakeview Corporate Park to Scannell Properties.  The sale closed last week for the property located at 10550 86th Avenue, Pleasant Prairie, WI.

The new 200,000 SF, one-story facility is precast and steel with 30-foot-high clear inside to allow maximum flexibility for manufacturing or long-term storage and distribution needs. The project was a joint venture of Lakeview Industrial Development, LLC , a development partnership comprised of Wangard Partners, Inc. as the managing partner and Hunzinger Construction Company.  Both firms have previously worked together on many construction projects but this was the first time they developed a project together.  The building, designed by Stephen Perry Smith Architects, broke ground at the end of June 2018 and was completed by the end of the year with final site work wrapping up in the spring of 2019.

“Scannell Properties is a rare company. They moved quickly and were focused on their intent with the utmost professionalism. Our team, working with Hunzinger Construction and Stephen Perry Smith, worked under challenging weather conditions to meet the closing deadline. It was well a coordinated effort that allowed us to complete the project while dealing with extraordinary spring rains.” said Stewart Wangard, CEO of Wangard Partners.

The Seller was represented by John Sharpe of Lee & Associates and the Buyer was represented by Tom Boyle of Lee & Associates. The Buyer has retained Lee and Associates to market the facility for lease. Wangard Partners, Inc. will be providing facility management services.
