paved or stabilized yard for inventory storage

The photo above shows a paved (apparently with blacktop) yard. There are a quite a few stabilization methods. Among the most common are concrete, asphalt or blacktop, crushed concrete, and gravel.

A yard is stabilized generally so that you can drive over it, and store vehicles and materials that are less susceptible to the weather. Without stabilization, the vehicles and materials would tend to sink into the ground, particularly but not only during wet weather. 

Security is usually also an issue with stabilized yards. They would normally be fenced and secured. The property usually stored on the yards may not always be the most portable, but thieves work by the "where there's a will, there's a way" philosophy.

You will find stabilize land, or yard in pretty much any Metro, including the Chicago Metro.

Paved or Stabilized Yard has many uses in addition to the above mentioned use of parking and storing vehicles like Semi-Trucks and Semi-Trailers. It can be used to store inventory - pipe and other items that can withstand the elements - as shown in the attached photo. It can even be used to display inventory, as in the case of processed stone used for countertops and siding. This is not even close to an exhaustive list. It is also often used as a place to park trucks and trailers, empty and loaded. With proper security, gating and fencing, it can be a reasonably secure place to store and display many items - especially heavy ones.

Overall, the design and installation of any reliable form of stabilization is expensive, and tends to be time consuming when factoring in engineering and the meeting of local requirements for drainage and stormwater retention. Consequently, paying a premium for a warehouse stabilized yard for lease or sale can be a worthwhile investment - as in, an area of land improved by stabilization is normally worth more than an un-stabilized acre. It is a common mistake to assume you can quickly and inexpensively just add stabilized yard using crushed concrete due to the dust that it can generate over time. Many localities have ordinances that restrict the method for this reason. Your locality may or may not require it, but you would do well to research whether extra drainage and stormwater retention are required for your area.

Leasing or buying a paved yard in the Chicago Metro has many advantages over making one from raw land. From permits zoning restrictions to water retention ponds to construction costs - the complications are many and diverse. With an existing yard, you already know what you have and what it will cost and how long it will take to get it. Stabilizing land on site with your existing, active operations can also be disruptive. This might lead to delays and added costs. 

You will often find Paved or Stabilized Yard along with a Warehouse on the same property, but this isn't alway true. There are other ways to search for this type of property or space.
