About Mural Park
Welcome to Pilsen's Mural Park
Welcome to Mural Park. Located in Pilsen, one of Chicago’s most culturally rich, historically significant and active neighborhoods. Mural Park is a creative office and commercial redevelopment of two 100,000 square foot loft buildings.
Mural Park will be a primary destination along the City of Chicago’s new El Paseo, a 4 mile bicycle and walking “rails-to-trails” corridor connecting University Village with Pilsen and Little Village. A large public plaza featuring local art installations, community gathering amenities and year round gardens will connect the two 100-year old buildings of Mural Park.
Condor Partners launched the Pilsen First Initiative with Eighteenth Street Development Corporation, Transwestern, and JLL with the goal of employing local businesses and attracting high-quality employers who respect and celebrate the rich culture of Pilsen.
Mural Park is being developed by a local Chicago company whose principles have been investing in Chicago neighborhoods for decades. The project aims to bring local employment back to Pilsen by attracting employment stakeholders to the community. Hispanic and Latino-owned businesses, businesses that employ from the neighborhood and those who market to the neighborhood. The goal is to help reinforce the culture and community which makes Pilsen so great. There are currently only 750 people who live and work in Pilsen, out of 13,000 residents. If we can bring these jobs back to Pilsen by converting 200,000 square feet of vacant buildings to office space, then we can help preserve the unique cultural identity, strengthen our employers’ commitment to the places we live and foster local dollars to be kept locally. The investment will also provide a huge tax increment into the neighborhood which can be captured by the City for reinvestment into the neighborhood. This provides significant potential revenue locally to help encourage the residential property tax freezes proposed.
