This site is yours to keep track of our progress, explore the details of the site transformation, and connect with our team.

Hilco Redevelopment Partners is revitalizing 70 unusable acres and putting it back into strong use to support economic development in the community including job opportunities and hiring, new partnerships with local business and community groups, and making infrastructureimprovements to pedestrian walkways and bus shelters that will promote safety. This project is also proudly supported by Local Union 150, the Little Village Chamber of Commerce, HACIA, IHCC and others.
The LEED-certified building accommodates solar power, recycling, LED lighting, electric vehicle infrastructure, 700 new trees and 400 native plantings. We have focused on world-class remediation efforts to ensure that the previously unsightly and unusable land would move forward with a new sustainable vision for the future.
Our $250M investment has created more than a world class logistic center. We’re partnering with the Little Village Chamber of Commerce and local organizations to bring thousands of new jobs, millions in tax revenue, and increased foot traffic for your local businesses.
We're proud to partner with community organizations in Little Village and throughout Chicago to support their work and to further our philanthropic initiatives.
Over the course of this transformative project, our team has collaborated with community partners to ensure the benefits of Exchange 55 are being experienced on- and off-site. The HRP team has had the opportunity to participate in a handful of opportunities including ourannual Earth Day celebration, holiday toy drives, and Thanksgiving turkey drives.
