Episode 12: Preservation Realty - Downtown Kankakee Economic Development
Old Midland States Bank Building at the corning of Schuyler and Station Street in Kankakee.
Pope Brace Building on South Washington Avenue near Court Street in Kankakee.
We take a deep dive into the major economic developments that are currently happening in downtown Kankakee with Preservation Realty. Joining us on this episode is Lisa Wogan, Barbi Brewer-Watson, Dave Baron, and Nicole Smolkovich. Two of the projects included in this endeavor are the repurposing of the old Pope Brace Building and the former Midland States Bank Building in downtown Kankakee. I found it to be really exciting to hear the great things that are happening in order to help Kankakee flourish into a new golden age. The beautiful thing about this is that each one of us can take part in this growth. However, It's up to us on whether we choose to climb aboard or not.
P. S. We are recording our very first episode of Kankakee Podcast in front of a live audience on Saturday, August 14th at Heroes, Hogs, and Hot Rods in downtown Manteno from 1:30pm to 2:45pm! This is absolutely FREE to the public. Anyone can come! I'm currently seeking sponsors to help cover the cost of this special episode. If your business is interested in becoming a sponsor, please email me for the details at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
