TIF Proposed For Northwest Side Distribution Facility

April 2, 2014


A West Town industrial building would be rehabilitated through $499,000 Tax Increment Financing
(TIF) assistance proposed to City Council today by Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
The $3.6 million rehabilitation project at 400 N. Noble St. would include a new roof, windows,
loading docks, refrigeration equipment, electrical upgrades, heating and air conditioning
improvements, tuck pointing and other repairs.
The improvements would accommodate the expansion of MT Food Service Inc., which owns and
occupies a portion of the 58,000-square-foot building. MT Food would maintain 89 positions and
create 11 new jobs over the next five years through the assistance.  
Founded in 1999, MT is a wholesale food distributor to restaurants, hotels, hospitals and schools.
