WHPDC’s commercial work began with the renovation of the Chicago Kedzie Shopping Center which created opportunities for residents to purchase goods and services in the community, and over 70 new jobs. 

Working with the City of Chicago, CDOT, IDOT, and Alderman Walter Burnett’s office, WHPDC, was able to expedite the complete renovation of the Chicago Avenue streetscape.

As the lead in the Smart Communities technology program, WHPDC, provided customized technology action plans to 30 businesses and was instrumental in the development of the Humboldt Park Portal - a community driven website serving Greater Humboldt Park. 

Situated between two of Chicago’s most lovely parks – Garfield Park and Humboldt Park - West Humboldt Park businesses are just 15 minutes from The Loop easily assessable via the CTA Green Line or the CTA#66 bus. Parking is abundant.
