Cannabis Facility Construction (CFC), a national, full-service, cannabis design-build construction firm, announced the completion of construction on a new Mission Dispensaries recreational and medical dispensary for 4Front Ventures Corp. in Calumet City, Illinois.
The dispensary, located at 1330 Torrence Avenue, across from River Oaks Center, opened to the public on December 15, 2020 and offers approximately 3,000 square feet of finished retail space, back office space for processing, a secure, oversized vault, highly advanced security system and plenty of parking.
Thanks to a program from the Calumet Region Enterprise Zone, identified by Cannabis Facility Construction, 4Front Ventures benefitted from tax-free construction materials and other real estate tax incentives throughout the renovation.
“We’re excited to have revitalized this building and delivered a beautiful dispensary in Calumet City,” said Andy Poticha, principal at Cannabis Facility Construction. “It’s been a pleasure for us working with the Mission team who are always very detail-oriented and organized, making our job that much easier.”
As their preferred design-build partner, Cannabis Facility Construction has delivered multiple dispensaries for 4Front Ventures, including Ann Arbor, Michigan; Georgetown, Massachusetts; Montclair, New Jersey and on Chicago’s South Side.
“It’s a pleasure working with Cannabis Facility Construction as our design-build partner on this and multiple projects across the country,” said Robert Spence, director of facilities at Mission Dispensaries. “We decided to add additional air purification and air filtration components to our HVAC system at the Calumet City dispensary to further enhance our response to the pandemic, and the CFC team was able to adjust seamlessly mid-project so we could make a significant improvement to the indoor air quality for our occupants without delaying our opening.”
