Ground-up construction of a 992,904 SF speculative industrial warehouse and distribution facility for Hilco Redevelopment Partners (HRP) is underway. Exchange 55 offers a strategic landscape for e-commerce, logistics and intermodal freight. The building is divisible to suit multiple tenants suited for e-commerce companies, food & cold storage, manufacturing, distribution, rail and heavy power users. Located on the former Crawford Station power plant in Chicago's West Side Little Village neighborhood, the shuttered power plant at 3501 S. Pulaski Road will be demolished and complete environmental remediation work will be done on the site. Site improvements include pedestrian and bike-friendly improvements along Pulaski, extensive landscaping, infrastructure for electric vehicles, traffic signal improvements, and other enhancements. Little Village offers a robust transportation infrastructure including intermodal railyards, Canadian National rail service, an “L” train station and barge access. Exchange 55 is adjacent to the full Pulaski interchange at I-55, offering a 10-minute drive to many of Chicago’s most densely populated downtown neighborhoods. The development also has excellent proximity to four intermodal yards, all located within a 7.5-mile radius.
Located in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood, tenants can also tap into one of the strongest submarkets in the nation for providing a talented workforce. HRP and MHC are excited about the collaborations they have been fortunate to participate in at the site and within the neighborhood including The Little Village Chamber of Commerce and HACIA. Since project commencement, Exchange 55 has generated hundreds of jobs.
