Manhard provided full entitlement management and site design services for this 138,000 SF Warehouse facility in the McKinley Park community on the Southwest Side of Chicago.

In addition, we were tasked with responsibility for zoning approvals, overall project design and construction schedule, permitting services and zoning code review for this project which resides in a Planned Manufacturing District.

Manhard’s scope included overall project management, civil engineering, landscape architecture, surveying, permit expediting and traffic engineering. We managed a rigorous City of Chicago approval process and obtained approvals with the Chicago Department of Planning and Development, Chicago Department of Transportation, Chicago Stormwater, Fire Protection Bureau and Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities.

Lastly, Manhard value engineered by reconfiguring the site plan early in the process to minimize impacts related to existing utility infrastructure and environmental constraints
