Ryan Companies announced plans for Pullman Crossings, a 50-plus acre industrial park that will support more than 1,000 full-time and construction jobs. It’s also expected to generate more than $100 million of investment and be a further catalyst for growth in Chicago’s Pullman neighborhood.
The business park is located at I-94 and 103rd Street and can accommodate multiple industrial warehouse and distribution facilities totaling up to 1.2 million square feet.
Construction for the project began in March on the 140,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market distribution center near the south end. The interior build-out is ongoing and a January 2018 opening is scheduled.
Pullman Crossings is also part of Pullman Park, a 180-acre, mixed-use development being master-developed by CNI. Pullman Park has generated more than $250 million of new investment and created more than 1,000 jobs through the addition of a 150,000-square-foot Wal-Mart and more than 70,000 square feet of new retail space.
In addition to its proximity to the Whole Food Market development, Pullman Crossings is immediately adjacent to the $20 million, 135,000-square-foot Pullman Community Center being supported by CNI, Alderman Beale, and the Roseland Youth Center. When completed the Community Center will create 100 full and part-time jobs and offer flexible space for meetings, community events, exhibitions and year-round sports programming for people of all ages.
Todd Heine and Brendan Kelly, both Principals with brokerage firm Avison Young, are marketing Pullman Crossings and targeting food processing and distribution firms.
