Turning big, empty Pilsen warehouses into office space

Condor Partners bought the vintage buildings at 1901 and 1911 S. Sangamon St. last year for what would be one of the biggest office developments in the Southwest Side neighborhood in many years, totaling 200,000 square feet and costing as much as $35 million.

Against that backdrop, Chicago developer David Baum proposed converting the building at 1901 S. Sangamon into 111 apartments in 2015. But he never went forward with his plan, which would have required a zoning change from the city, no sure thing given the neighborhood's dynamics.

Pilsen has potential as an office market, but it's still early, said Matt Garrison, managing principal at Chicago developer R2. In 2015, the firm agreed to buy a 300,000-square-foot warehouse at 465 W. Cermak Road with plans to convert it into office space. But it never closed on the deal.
