June 16, 2022: First Midwest Group intends to convert a former Kmart in McHenry, Illinois, to a Boxed Up Self-Storage facility. The developer owns the northern half of the strip mall and plans to buy the southern portion at 1900 N. Richmond Road from Philadelphia-based BET Investments.
The 86,000-square-foot retail space has been vacant for more than a decade. First Midwest has also proposed developing five additional buildings on the lot with a potential mix of uses, including a car wash. The planning and zoning commission is scheduled to review the application on June 15.
