Hilco Redevelopment Partners Acquires Former Power Plant, Plans $100M Industrial Development
CHICAGO — Hilco Redevelopment Partners, a unit of Hilco Global, has acquired the Crawford Power Generating Station site in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood for an undisclosed price. NRG Energy sold the site, which had previously operated as a coal-fired power plant beginning in the late 1920s before being decommissioned in 2012. Hilco plans to demolish the facility and replace it with up to 1 million square feet of warehouse space as part of a $100 million project, according to the Chicago Tribune. Remediation work is slated to begin soon and may take anywhere from 14 to 24 months, depending on site conditions.
