City Approves TIF Request for Whole Foods Distribution Center in Pullman

New, 4 comments

The 140,000-square-foot facility is expected to bring 150 new jobs to Pullman

Whole Foods’ plan to open a distribution center in the Pullman neighborhood has hit a major milestone today as the city’s Finance Committee has approved the upscale grocery chain’s request for $7.4 million in TIF subsidies to open the facility, the Chicago Department of Planning and Development announced. The public funding request was a key a hurdle for the plan, which is expected to create 150 new jobs in the area. The new 140,000-square-foot Pullman facility will occupy a 16.5 acre site in the far-south neighborhood and will replace Whole Foods’ current distribution center in nearby Munster, Indiana. Whole Foods anticipates an early 2018 opening for the new distribution center.
