Description

A new hub for foodies is in the works along this industrial stretch of Rockwell Street, with Metropolis Coffee Co. as an anchor tenant. The 18,000-square foot roastery opened in September 2015 in a former tannery building, moving from an Andersonville garage. Developer Paul Levy, known for founding the Bridgeport Art Center, has repurposed several industrial buildings in this complex to attract a growing roster of food-oriented businesses, creating a new riverfront destination on the Northwest Side.
