Nonprofit building in former PMD zoning hits the market
JLL to market Anixter Center property in Clybourn Corridor  

CHICAGO, July 20, 2017 – One of the first repositioning opportunities in Chicago’s former planned manufacturing district (PMD) zoning is now available. JLL today announced it has been retained by Anixter Center, one of the largest nonprofit organizations in the Chicago area serving people with disabilities, to bring its 2032 N. Clybourn property to market. The listing, a four-story, 154,000-square-foot office building should see a multitude of investors as this area of Chicago is expected to undergo a massive redevelopment with the recent lift of the PMD zoning.

JLL’s Development and Asset Strategy team is leading the marketing efforts.

“This site represents a tremendous opportunity to be a part of the major transformation we are about to see in this area of Lincoln Park and along the Chicago River,” said Tom Kirschbraun, Managing Director for JLL. “This is a chance for investors and developers to bring an entirely new concept to a building that sits in one of the city’s strongest and most dynamic real estate submarkets.”

As Anixter Center prepares to move its current operations it comes at a time when potential offerings could mean big changes for this area. In addition to the recent PMD changes, Sterling Bay is also planning for a major redevelopment of the former A. Finkl & Sons steel plant site that sits along just west of Anixter’s 2032 N. Clybourn building.  

“We recognize what a unique opportunity this is for us; timing is right and we’re taking full advantage,” said Dr. Teresa Garate, President and CEO of Anixter Center. “We believe that now is the time to right size our space and move our services to convenient locations that best serve the needs of our clients and our programs.”

Margaret definitely knows what she wants—a job. And she also knows what it will take to get one—better job skills and her GED. Anixter Center is supporting her all the way.

It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of our New Focus program effective June 16, 2017. New Focus cares for individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury. The main funding source for New Focus, a major grant from the Employment Division of DHS, will be terminated on June 30, 2017.

The decision to close New Focus, like closing any of our programs, is difficult. However, without sufficient funding, I believe that the 18 – 20 clients served daily can receive the best possible care from other providers. We are working to provide uninterrupted programming for our clients and our existing clients are being referred to other service providers. Anixter Center staff will have the opportunity to apply for open Anixter Center positions.

I would like to thank the New Focus staff for their dedicated efforts on behalf of our clients and I wish them best of luck in their future endeavors.

Sincerely,
Dr. Teresa Garate
President and CEO
