Planned Artist Workspace Rezoned for Hotel Development in Pilsen

The Chicago Plan Commission unanimously voted to change the zoning at the W.M. Hoyt Co. building at 465 W. Cermak Rd. in the near Southwest Side neighborhood of Pilsen. Plans for the vacant building also include 78,150 square feet of retail.
