Developer Sterling Bay has landed its first major commercial tenant for its growing portfolio of recently acquired industrial property in Lincoln Park. Crain's reports that logistics giant C.H. Robinson Worldwide has inked a deal with Sterling Bay to lease a new office building that will take the place of the former Gutmann Leather Company site off Webster Avenue. The company will relocate about 1,000 employees to the new three-story, 200,000-square-foot facility near the end of 2018, Crain's reports. While Sterling Bay would not comment about their plans for the neighboring Finkl steel site, the company does expect to break ground on the new facility very soon.
