DURBIN ON YARDS AND STIMULUS

DURBIN ON YARDS AND STIMULUS

Senator Dick Durbin

Senator Dick Durbin stopped by the  Halsted-Pershing Business Center  for a breakfast speech on job development. Dick, who always knows just when to look at the camera, once worked as a meat packer. He says he's happy to see the Stockyards Industrial Park creating jobs on the south side where the vast labor pool and access to highways makes a great environment for manufacturing and food businesses. He says Congress is trying to find $30B in stimulus funds to help small businesses get loans so they can occupy the spaces like those in the Stockyards.

Back of the Yards' Martha Jungenberg, Dayton Street Capital's Howard Werden
We also snapped Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council's Martha Jungenberg and Dayton Street Capital's Howard Wedren, who developed the building. Howard says he's close to signing a lease for a third of Halsted-Pershing Business Center's 105k-SF. The spec industrial building was completed last year and is being marketed by CBRE's Steven Livaditis, who says the location lends itself to conventional flex warehouse space, food processing, or technology. Howard enjoys the benefits it gets from being in a  Special Service Area, including landscaping and security.
