Chicago’s Little Village is home to a retired coal-fired power plant. Future use of the space is being planned by Hilco Redevelopment Partners with the approval of the City Council. Hilco plans to convert it into a distribution center and they believe the jobs created would benefit the city.

Some are wary of this renovation as the plant “was designed by noted architecture firm Graham, Anderson, Probst & White and opened in the 1920s”. Although the building needs to be demolished, they hope to repurpose various pieces. Added advantages are Hilco plans to use a power infrastructure to support electric vehicles and other renewable energy sources such as solar panels.
