Chicago Market currently has more than 1375 Owners...which puts us 625 shy of the minimum number of Owners we need by December 31 to secure funding to continue design and construction of the Gerber building.
That's a lot of people. In fact, it breaks down to the Co-op needing to ink more than 6 Owners each and every day.
So...is there a single, convincing argument for WHY we believe becoming an Owner of Chicago Market is one of the most important decisions you'll make this year? Actually, No. In fact, there's almost as many reasons for buying into the Co-op as there are current Owners!
