Chicago — Craft brewery 5 Rabbit Cerveceria has signed a 12,000-square-foot lease to be the first retail tenant at Mural Park in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.
The Latin American-inspired brewery will anchor the property and occupy 5,000 square feet on the ground floor and 7,000 square feet in the basement for its brewing operation. The brewery is expected to open in early 2019. Jose Gonzalez and Joaquin Manriquez of JLL represented the landlord, Condor Partners, in the lease transaction. Mural Park is an office and retail redevelopment of two 100,000-square-foot loft buildings. The development is the starting point for El Paseo, a four-mile trails project that will connect Pilsen, Little Village and University Village.
