The Industrial Growth Zones (IGZs) program is a new City of Chicago mayoral initiative administered by the Chicago Department of Planning and Development (DPD), designed to accelerate development in five specific industrial corridors in the Chicago Area, leading to job creation and retention. The five IGZ corridors include Calumet, Burnside, Greater Southwest, Roosevelt/Cicero, and Northwest (see map below).
The initiative allows for up to $130,000 in reimbursement for applicable Phase I/II Due Diligence and Environmental Site Remediation for approved development projects. Landowners and current business owners operating within the IGZs and potential new business owners seeking to move into an IGZ are eligible.
Roux Associates is available to assist eligible parties with application proposals, environmental due diligence, and remediation activities for identified IGZ projects, in order to take advantage of this unique development initiative.
