— Hereís the latest on three Edgerton buildings with available industrial space:

- I-90 Industrial Center, also known as the former Dana Corp./Caterpillar building


Elk Corp. signed a 10-year lease for the building, owned by Hendricks Development Group, in 2004, but the company was bought out before it could move in.


Elkís buyer, GAF Materials Corp., decided not to occupy the building. It sublets 200,000 square feet to Holley Moulding and 250,000 square feet to Generac Power Systems, said Mark Membrino of Hendricks Development Group.


That leaves about 400,000 square feet vacant.


Ideally, Hendricks could find one large tenant to occupy the whole building and let Elk out of its lease, he said.


ďItís a great building because itís got two internal rail spurs, which is a valuable commodity; itís got high ceilings and plenty of power,Ē Membrino said. ďThose are all good things for manufacturers.Ē


- Hiway Industrial Park, also known as the former Highway/ Dorsey Trailer building


Green-Tek and Coextruded Plastic Technologies will be out of the building by the end of the month after a dispute with owner Jim Grafft. The site has about 200,000 square feet available for lease on 30 acres, Grafft said.


Grafft is considering moving the engine division of TecumsehPower Co. into the building, he said. He bought the company earlier this year and moved it to Janesville.


But he also thinks the space would be good for other tenants, he said.


ďIn my mind, itís the nicest space thatís available in Rock County right now,Ē he said. ďItís got a nice location right off the highway; itís got an attractive rental rate.Ē


- Nunn Bush Shoe factory


Owner Jim Grafft isnít actively looking for a tenant for the 50,000-square-foot facility, he said. Heís considering moving some Tecumseh operations there and is currently using it to store Tecumseh equipment.


But the space is listed on the city of Edgertonís Web site as available, and Grafft would move the Tecumseh equipment out if a suitable tenant came along, he said.
