CenterPoint Intermodal Center-Elwood
CenterPoint Intermodal Center-Elwood (CIC-Elwood) is a 2,500-acre (1,012-ha) integrated logistics center used for the transfer, distribution, and warehousing of consumer materials and goods. Located in Elwood, Illinois, 50 miles (80 km) southwest of Chicago, the brownfield redevelopment includes a 775-acre (317-ha) intermodal terminal–a facility for the transfer of freight from rail to trucks. CIC-Elwood also contains 8 million square feet (743,224 sq m) of warehouse and distribution space in eight structures. In 2012, when the project is expected to be completed, it will contain approximately 12 million square feet (1.1 million sq m) of warehouse space in 15 buildings, with a total investment approaching $1 billion in public and private financing.
