The development of a new, 12,750-square-foot scaffolding company headquarters in the Roosevelt Cicero Industrial Corridor will be supported through a City-owned land sale approved by City Council today.
The vacant 1.5-acre site at 1319 S. Kilbourn Ave. will be sold to United Scaffolding Inc. for its appraised value of $325,000 to facilitate construction of the $1.1 million facility.
The headquarters will include a 2,400-square-foot, two-story office building, a 10,400-square-foot warehouse, and outdoor storage space. The project is expected to create 10 new permanent jobs while retaining 15 current positions that will be consolidated on site.
Vacant since 1951, the property has been owned by the City since 1999.
Founded in 2014, United Scaffolding rents and installs scaffolding, protection canopies, safety netting and other systems for a variety of worksite needs.
