Motorola Solutions Campus Redevelopment Proposal

Motorola Solutions Campus Redevelopment Proposal


A developer is aiming to transform Schaumburg's former Motorola Solutions campus into a self-contained community of offices, homes, stores, restaurants, hotels and entertainment venues whose land area would rival that of the Chicago Loop.

Bob Burk, managing partner of UrbanStreet Group LLC, sees the project as an early part of the second chapter in the story of Chicago's suburbs.

"The suburbs have never really had to evolve before," the Inverness resident said. "They're really not that old."

But Motorola Solutions' relocation of its headquarters to Chicago -- downsizing its Schaumburg presence to a still respectable 1,600 employees -- provided the impetus to adapt what passing motorists had seen as predominantly a big lawn into something much more active.

Schaumburg officials are equally enthusiastic about the opportunity, hiring their own team of consultants to weigh the potential of the site as well as UrbanStreet Group's specific proposal.

But they recognize it as an opportunity that came with an upfront cost.

"It's not a great day when your largest employer tells you they're leaving. I won't sugarcoat it," Schaumburg Community Development Director Julie Fitzgerald said. "But then you plan."

Indeed, with corporate giants such as McDonald's Corp. and United Airlines that sunk roots in the suburbs during the 20th century now pulling them out in the 21st, affected communities are looking for ways to repurpose great swathes of land that was long spoken for. Such ideas as the ones UrbanStreet Group is implementing in Schaumburg are in great demand.

"The concepts are transferable," Burk said. "We're not the first to do this. I wish I were that smart."

Still, the size, location and existing redevelopment of the Schaumburg site makes the potential of the newly dubbed "Veridian" development unique, Burk said.

At 322 acres -- of which UrbanStreet Group owns 225 -- the former campus is only slightly smaller than the defined area of the Loop. And while some corporations acquired more out-of-the-way locations, Motorola Solutions' old headquarters borders the I-90 tollway just minutes west of O'Hare Airport, with easy access via a new interchange at Meacham Road that just opened.

Furthermore, with Zurich North America's new headquarters in the southeast corner of the site and Motorola Solutions having renovated a building it's leasing back from a new owner, there are already about 4,600 potential daytime customers for service businesses interested in locating there, Burk said.

And the existing office space represents only about a third of the potential 3.3 million square feet village consultants see as suitable for the site.

Representatives of Zurich North America and Motorola Solutions said their firms already are looking forward to having some new neighbors.

"We are excited to see the campus evolve to be repurposed by the developer," said Motorola Solutions spokeswoman Natalie Brown. "We also are eager to see the property add value back to the community and expect our employees will welcome any new goods and services."

Dennis Kerrigan, chief legal officer for Zurich North America, said his firm didn't buy its site with expectations of the adjacent land staying empty.

"We decided to build our North American headquarters in Schaumburg as part of our commitment to providing the best possible working environment for our employees and in recognition of the area's impressive potential," he said. "We are pleased that the village and developer of the former Motorola property are making progress toward achieving that potential, and we sincerely appreciate their thoughtful approach thus far."

I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost

Appreciate it!

A Intelligent Way to locate Free Adult Chat Rooms!

Chatting on the internet is hugely popular. The problem is you can find
few free adult forums where we can discuss adult topics.
Due to their popularity, webmasters increasingly decide to
charge to the service. In this article, you will see how
to easily find countless these chat communities, many of
which are entirely free.
It is becoming nearly impossible to find good places for adults
to talk. Most of that is due to the spread of instant messengers,
virtual worlds, and social support systems. The few good chat sites available are generally full
or, worse still, full and intent on asking you to pay a subscription fee.
To most people, it seems like purchasing of excellent, fun, lively free places for adults on an adult chat have ended.
Thankfully, there is certainly a significant clever opportinity for us to still find good rooms.


All with the big dating communities offer their members free adult
forums. Now, I'm sure you happen to be thinking, "Yes, that dating sites also ask you for a subscription of these free rooms!" This
is not always true. Many such chat communities are free, others cost nothing but
have limited features for that non-paying members, and others still give you a
no cost service for females.
The attractiveness of joining a substantial, well-known dating community is basically that you
get given usage of a huge adult chatting community that has hundreds,
sometimes many people using it at anybody time.
Better yet, their rooms often offer users the opportunity to hook inside their webcams.
So you could possibly be chatting away in the room and have the
opportunity to select an account and watch them on his
or her webcam, too!

Reiki is recognized for its positive effects around the human body.

flow through our bodies, illnesses and diseases can seem.
Reiki stimulates the flow of positive energy, thus enabling
one's body to heal itself and fight the internal and external
attacks more effectively.

it acts about the system, it is one of the few complete detox programs one can follow.
In addition to that no involve refraining from food or another form of activity.

a negative impact upon treatments.

relaxation is induced to the individual. By removing negative energy and promoting a sense
of peace, the recovery process is going to be
easier and shorter, no matter the illness or disease from where the
average person suffers.

from food and water to medicines and curative herbs.
Thus, it is usually used successfully as being a complementary therapy for all those already taking medicine,
but concurrently it's perfect for maintain the consumer's
health in good parameters.

experiences off their lives and handling unexpected or unpleasant situations from other lives.
