The Community

First built by the celebrated Pyle National Company, whose creations lit America’s railroads for decades, The Terminal’s campus has been a part of Humboldt Park for over a hundred years, doing exactly what The Terminal aims to do too: connecting people. Today, however, those people have changed. No longer just for the few, The Terminal’s community will include the innovators and makers it looks to house, as well as those in the surrounding area, to create a place where businesses, organizations, and residents can come together and thrive.

The Innovators

Rather than being constrained physically and financially by their space, as urban innovators often are, the contiguous corridors and flex-spaces at The Terminal are primed for the fast-paced tech industry. With large, open-air spaces as fluid as its tenants and their work, The Terminal will offer an ideal environment for contemporary digital technicians and developers, as well as other tech-focused firms looking for the freedom to scale.

The Makers

Given its industrial origin, The Terminal’s volume and durability make it a perfect fit for modern craftspeople. It always has. Its historic, lofted facilities can accommodate large hardware without question, and the mixed-use ecosystem to come will provide a community diverse in its products, yet aligned in its interests, to make the exchange of ideas, interests, and practice a mainstay. For hands-on makers looking for dependability and quality with room to grow and thrive, there’s nowhere else to look but The Terminal.

Humboldt Park

Rich in history and fundamentally Chicago, Humboldt Park has always been a place of pride in the city. The Terminal is a cornerstone of several ongoing initiatives around the area, helping bring investment tools to the neighborhood’s commercial corridors as part of the City’s INVEST South/West scheme and prioritizing local business through the state-backed Opportunity Zone program. With the support of these public initiatives, The Terminal will become a complement to the thriving Humboldt Park community and a place of collaboration for local residents and businesses alike.
