A vacant, one-story building in East Garfield Park would be rehabilitated as a print shop and offices through a Cook County Class 6(b) property tax incentive proposed to City Council today by Mayor Brandon Johnson.

Planned for 272 N. California Ave. by Studio inHause and Chicago Printworks, the $2.4 million project would include facade improvements, roof repairs and an interior buildout. The project would retain 18 jobs that would relocate from the Near West Side and add 10 new positions upon completion.

The incentive would reduce taxes on the property by $107,224 over the 12-year term.
