Related Midwest, 548 Enterprise Break Ground on West Side Industrial-Innovation Complex

548 Enterprise and Related Midwest broke ground Friday on 4300 W. Roosevelt Rd. in North Lawndale as part of the INVEST South/West economic development initiative. The $68-million project will include two 181,760-square-foot, solar-powered industrial warehouses with more than 50 dock spaces and two 5,000-square-foot innovation centers and a public park for community use.  

The site is located in the Roosevelt/Cicero Industrial Corridor, bounded by Roosevelt Road, and Kostner, Kildare and Fifth avenues. Prior to its acquisition by the city, the industrial corridor was occupied by a Copenhagen snuff plant and other industrial users before being cleared in the 1980s and 1990s.  

To design the four new buildings, 548 Enterprise and Related Midwest collaborated with Lamar Johnson Collaborative, a full-service Chicago-based design and architecture firm, on the innovation centers. Chicago-based Ware Malcomb provided design services for the industrial center.   

The project is expected to be completed in fall 2024.
