Chicago has issued a $25 million building permit to construct a new Amazon distribution center at 2424 S. Halsted St.
The one-story warehouse building in Bridgeport attracted some local opposition, and the Chicago Plan Commission approved the project by an 8-6 vote in November, a rare close decision according to Block Club Chicago. The 12,000 sq. ft. project along the south branch of the Chicago River includes a landscaped riverwalk.
