Neighborhood Opportunity Fund Grant Would Support Lower West Side Cycle Business

July 20, 2022


A Lower West Side motorcycle business would renovate and expand its sales and service center through a $1.59 million Neighborhood Opportunity Fund grant proposed to City Council today by Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot.

Planned for 1901 S. Western Ave., the proposed improvements would include upgrades to an existing showroom, new classrooms and offices and the creation of a rooftop event space.

The $3 million project by Motoworks Chicago would retain and create 30 permanent jobs.

The Neighborhood Opportunity Fund allocates fees paid by downtown construction projects toward business improvement projects in portions of Chicago’s West, Southwest and South sides.
