Charting Community Assets

Pilsen Industrial Property Inventory
Fall 1997

With the many available industrial properties and the newly established TIF district in the Cermak Industrial Corridor, the Pilsen community has the opportunity to attract new industries and jobs to this area. Eighteenth Street Development Corporation (ESDC) has taken the initiative to bring this opportunity to reality. ESDC requested the services of the City Design Center to assist in identifying and developing a database of industrial properties in the Pilsen Industrial Corridor. Specifically, the City Design Center researched information on property ownership and parcel size, which ESDC then incorporated into its marketing literature.
