Chicago courts developers in hopes of revitalizing city-owned warehouses

January 19, 2018 11:22AM

The Chicago Community Development Commission is looking for developers to reinvigorate two massive city-owned warehouses. The six-story structures were built by the U.S. Army in 1918 and were once the largest concrete warehouses in the world, with 570,000 square feet apiece. The city is offering up the buildings as part of an international design competition sponsored by C40, a coalition of cities looking for sustainable ways to combat climate change. Developers have until May 4 to submit their qualifications to the city. [Chicago Business]
