18 December 2009 Although Wrigley shipped out its last stick of Juicy Fruit gum from a plant at 3535 S. Ashland several years ago, it has now decided to put the factory site up for sale. The 30 acre, 1.3 million square foot plant is being marketed by CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. for $19 million. Zoning prohibits the property from being developed for residential or retail purposes, but it can be used for light industrial and educational facilities. The site is located in Mayor Daley’s original home 11th ward, and has become an embarrassment for the mayor. Daley is pushing for a quick sale and redevelopment.Email This Post To a Friend.
