IBT Group to Redevelop Warehouse Into $121M Mixed-Use

The Chicago Department of Planning and Development has officially chosen local developer IBT Group LLC to redevelop a historic City-owned property in McKinley Park, including mixed-income housing, commercial offices and retail space. In addition to IBT, the development team also includes Epstein, APMonarch, dbHMS, Site, Englewood Construction, and ARCO/Murray.

The 6.5-acre site at 1717-69 W. Pershing Road will repurpose a vacant 571,000-square-foot warehouse known as the Quartermaster Depot, which was built in 1918 for the U.S. Army. The development site is valued at approximately $6.7 million, minus environmental remediation costs yet to be determined.

Rehabilitation work on the six-story structure will remove a center section of the building to create two partially detached structures with a shared interior courtyard. One structure will include 120 mixed-income apartments ranging from studios to three-bedroom units. The other will become a 200,445-square-foot innovative office hub and technology incubator. The eastern portion of the site will be redeveloped as a 50,000-square-foot grocery store.
