CHICAGO-A $42-million church and sports complex is among the development proposals being floated in the Pullman community, while the city is attempting to acquire 20.5 acres in the West Pullman Industrial Park to spur redevelopment of a 650,000-sf building. Meanwhile, the city’s department of planning and development has prepared a redevelopment plan for a 57.1-acre area in North Pullman.

The redevelopment area is bounded roughly by 103rd and 108th streets, Cottage Grove and Maryland avenues. The redevelopment plan includes 81 properties, mostly vacant lots or vacant single-family homes and two-flats, targeted for acquisition either by private developers or the city. However, the list includes one small multifamily rental building and a commercial property formerly used as a service station.

Some of those buildings face demolition if they are deemed unsound or obsolete, according to a department of planning and development report.

Assistance in the form of tax increment financing may be available for private developers. In addition, developers could acquire city-owned properties in the redevelopment area.

The department of planning and development envisions commercial and mixed-use redevelopment along with new single-family and multifamily buildings in an area that includes historic and older buildings.
