The City’s TIF Commission is considering a new development planned for the Ice House District. The $5.1 million project at South Broadway and LaSalle will involve the rehabilitation of the historic #6 building as a new office and event space for Catering Plus!, a minority-owned business now located in Richmond Heights, and as warehouse space expected to be occupied by an environmental firm with offices in the District. Matt Librach, President of MBL Properties, is the managing member of the developer.
Catering Plus!, owned and operated by Bryan Young, has been in business since May 1995, producing “international-style food using fresh high quality products with seasonal ingredients," and is certainly one of my favorite caterers. The company is expected to create a minimum of 20 jobs with the move to the new and expanded location. With the expansion, the company will be able to increase its outside catering business, and also be able to host events in its own venue.
I look forward to a ground-breaking announcement — and to tasting Bryan’s food in his own space.
