Chicago mayor Ruben Pineda recently revealed that efforts to boost a business park in West Chicago are finally paying off.
According to Pineda, the city is teaming up with park owner DuPage Airport Authority and Choose DuPage to encourage additional growth on the 800-acre campus and “develop incentive plans for new development.”
“These efforts have led to several exciting prospects already bubbling to the surface,” Pineda said during his State of the City address.
The details of the plan have yet to be revealed, but Pineda shared several hints, including a plan to build 800,000 square feet of warehouse distribution space, as well as another 750,000 square feet of manufacturing and distribution.
“For the first time in over 10 years, I have been informed that we might be running out of available property in the DuPage Business Center,” Pineda said during the address. “That, my friends, is a great problem to have.
“We are committed to our pledge to our residents and businesses to provide exceptional service and transparent government while focusing on doing what we can do to relieve the financial burden on our customers.”
