Whole Foods plans to build a distribution facility in the Pullman neighborhood on the South Side that would employ 150 people.This is treated as a developing story sooooo I look forward to finding out more about this project in the near future.
The 140,000-square-foot facility will be at 720 E. 111th St., according to the city of Chicago. The site is currently vacant.
The center, to open in early 2018, will replace an existing Munster, Ind., facility and will serve up to 70 Whole Foods stores in the Midwest and Canada, according to the city.
The city "will consider approximately $7.4 million in tax-increment financing assistance" for the project, according to a statement. The subsidy is being considered "to ensure the site was competitive with the existing facility in Indiana," the statement said.
Here's a map of the future site below thanks to Google Maps.
