Chicago is widely considered to be one of the most important financial, industrial, and cultural centers in the United States. According to World Business Chicago, the city has one of the world’s largest and most diversified economies, with more than four million employees and generating an annual gross regional product (GRP) of over $698 billion. The city is an efficient economic powerhouse, home to more than 400 major corporate facilities, including 36 in the Fortune 500, and 31 in the S&P 500. Among the most diverse economies in the nation, Chicago is a key player in every sector from risk management innovation to manufacturing to information technology to health services.1

The city’s industrial market has been called unstoppable in recent months. According to JLL’s Q4 Industrial Insight Report, the market enjoyed a record-setting year in 2021 when it came to leasing volume as vacancy rates entered historically low territory, falling to 3.5%.2
