Nestled behind the former Solo Cup building off North Glenstone Avenue, steel framing has been raised for a roughly 205,000-square-foot, freestanding addition to the longtime manufacturing and warehouse hub.

Property owner and developer Warren Davis Properties LLC is building the warehouse space at 1960 E. Bergman St. to the tune of roughly $11 million, said co-owner Patrick Harrington.

He said the property group decided to move forward with building plans this summer, noting the current warehouse space – which already is 1.35 million square feet – is 100% occupied. Tenants are SRC Logistics Inc., NewStream Enterprises LLC, Michigan-based Truck Hero and Florida-based RealTruck.

“We had talked about building this spec building for the past couple of years,” Harrington said. “What was formerly Lily-Tulip and Solo is full – all those spaces are leased.”

Kansas City-based door company D.H. Pace Co. LLC has signed an undisclosed lease agreement for 65,000 square feet and will occupy the space once construction is complete in April, Harrington said. Available for lease is a roughly 100,000-square-foot space and a separate 39,000-square-foot spot in the new building.

Q & Co. LLC was hired on as general contractor, along with Buxton Kubik Dodd Design Collective as project architect, said Q & Co. owner Rick Quint.

The lot on Bergman Street originally was the parking area for employees at the Lily-Tulip plant. Harrington said the property group has added additional parking on the west side of the former Solo Cup building over the years, and the Bergman Street lot has sat empty.

Warren Davis Properties purchased the former Solo Cup building – which has not been renamed – in 2010 for $7.9 million, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting. The manufacturing and warehouse space was originally built in 1952 by Lily-Tulip.
