Zilber Property Group plans fall opening for speculative industrial buildings in Germantown and Janesville, two markets where the Milwaukee developer has been active in recent years.

The 230,000-square-foot Germantown building near Holy Hill Road and Interstate 41 gained a final needed local approval on Monday. It will be the fifth building in four years at Zilber’s 140-acre Germantown Gateway Corporate Park.

A 300,000-square-foot speculative building is also set to start soon in Janesville, the company’s fourth new development in Rock County. Zilber also acquired 1.1 million square feet of building space in south-central Wisconsin since 2017, according to a Tuesday press release.

“The Germantown and Janesville industrial markets appeal to a wide variety of users and we have experienced strong demand from tenants for the size and quality of buildings we construct,” said Chad Navis, Zilber director of industrial investments. “With industrial space in high demand across all markets we are confident in our on-going commitment to develop and invest in both of these communities.”

Those two buildings are to start in spring for completion in fall, according to the release. Both will have what Zilber called “above-standard improvements” to allow food and beverage companies to occupy the buildings.
