Building success that lasts in work, life, and community

JARC's Real Estate Affiliate - Jane Addams Development Corporation (JADC)

JARC was launched as an economic development project in the Ravenswood Industrial Corridor in 1985. One of its earliest and most effective strategies for industrial retention centered on the acquisition and rehab of commercial space for manufacturing use.

Today, JARC’s real estate affiliate, Jane Addams Development Corporation (JADC) owns and operates five commercial buildings for industrial use. JARC’s industrial buildings house 51 firms with 321 employees.

JARC and JADC’s third acquisition, the Honore (2002), houses the Training Center for the Metalworking Trades and all of JARC’s sectoral job training programs.

Beyond the goal of industrial retention, these investments constitute JARC’s lead social enterprise. With over $6m in assets, JADC has provided stability and support to JARC throughout its evolution.
