The 1685 N. Throop Street site is located within the North Branch Industrial Corridor, which is currently the subject of a public review process – Mayor Emanuel’s Industrial Corridor Modernization – North Branch. The site is currently zoned PMD 2 - Elston Corridor. The purpose of this process is to evaluate and improve infrastructure and modernize land use policies to support continued growth and private investment within the area.

Goals that are guiding the process include:

  • Maintain the North Branch as an economic engine and vital job center
  • Provide better access for people to walk, bike and take transit
  • Build upon the area’s unique natural and built assets
